Permits Application Form

The Permits Application form is used to apply for a building, sign, or Use and Occupancy permit. Required fields include, but are not limited to, property description, work description, owner information and type of permit applied for. You may use one of the following documents to obtain property description information: tax bill, the deed for the property or go to to retrieve property information by County and address.

Application Review

Once submitted, the permit application is reviewed by the applicable County, State or other appropriate agencies for approval, as required if a particular construction plan includes environmental, health and/or safety matters governed by agencies other than the Department of Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement (DPIE).

These agencies could include the Health Department, Soil Conservation District (SCD), Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC), Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) or State Highway Administration. Representatives from these agencies are now, or soon will be, accessible in DPIE.

Transmittal Form

This form is used when making a revision to an existing permit.

Volume Builders Form

This form can be used by builders who apply for a large number of permits at any given time to expedite the application process. The first Permit Application has to be on a Regular Application.

The Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC) has specific requirements for the form and content of every home improvement contract provided by the MHIC licensed contractor. Be sure you are familiar with those requirements before signing any home improvement contract. Home Improvement contractors must be licensed by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission (MHIC).
