Inspection Services

Inspections are required for all permitted work in the City of San Leandro. The purpose of an inspection is to ensure that the work meets the construction and installation requirements of all applicable codes. Inspections are scheduled online by the contractor or the homeowner. The website can be found on the Building and Safety Division homepage called "Online Permits By Accela." To schedule an inspection, you must register for an account creating a user ID and a password (it must be done with a computer only). 

Once you have registered, you can do the following; schedule, cancel or reschedule inspections, check results of your inspections, track your project submittal, and review your permit history. If you are having trouble registering for an inspection, please contact Kathy Switzer, at 510-577-3405 and she will assist you. It is very important when searching for your permit that you only put your permit number in the record information field.

Inspection Performance Hours

Normal inspections are performed Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to noon or from 1 to 4 pm (you may request a morning or afternoon inspection). After-hour and weekend inspections are available at an additional cost. A two-business day advance notice is requested. 

Our staff will accommodate your time schedule whenever possible. Our inspection staff can be reached directly every morning between 8 am and 8:30 am, and every afternoon between 4:30 pm and 5 pm

Please note:  Please check the department schedule for exceptions.

You may leave a voicemail message with an inspector and they will return your call when they return to the office.
