How to create a draft building permit application

The application creation is a guided process in Cloudpermit. You will start the application creation from your Dashboard. You will name your application and select the province|state and municipality you wish to submit your application. You will either find your subject property by address and a roll number or point it on the interactive map with GIS technology. Depending on your application's category, work type, and target selection, Cloudpermit provides you with a correct application form to fill out and submit.

Using the Cloudpermit guided application creation, you will only submit the correct application and speed up its processing time in your municipality.
