Automated Phone Inspection Scheduling System

The City of Richmond has updated its permit inspection scheduling to include an Automated Phone Inspection Scheduling System. This update allows customers to schedule or cancel inspections and to retrieve inspection results via touch-tone telephone, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Automated Phone Inspection Scheduling System is now in place and will help streamline the City’s inspection scheduling process. Using a touch-tone telephone, customers should dial the Inspection number (800) 231-6881 and follow a series of prompts by touch tone to schedule or cancel an inspection or to retrieve inspection results.

Please view or print instructions to schedule or cancel an inspection.
