The Building Division strives to provide next-day inspections, Mondays through Thursdays. To schedule, reschedule, or cancel an inspection, you can call the automated City of Novato Building Inspection Hotline prior to 6 AM of the day you want the inspection.  Your inspection will be scheduled for the same day, provided it is a City working day. You may also schedule inspections up to five days in advance. Indicate your choice of an AM (8 AM - Noon) or PM (Noon - 4:30 PM) inspection request. View detailed inspection request instructions & codes. The system will not allow inspections to be scheduled on City non-working days, Fridays, and holidays. If you have a question or would like to speak with your building inspector, prior to an inspection, please see the Inspection Districts below for contact information.
