How to apply for the "Transfer of Permit"

Applicants can use Cloudpermit to transfer their building permit to a new owner. Applicants will request a permit transfer by using the original building application. The data from the original application will be copied to the new supplemental application. The original application's data will remain in the application under "Related Workspaces."

The application is in the "Permit Issued" step.

  1. Navigate to the "More Actions" drop-down and select "Apply for Transfer of Permit."
  2. Select "Yes."
  3.  You have now created a draft supplemental building permit application workspace, i.e... a transfer of permit application. 
  4. The new application workspace is in the "Draft" step. The "Required Tasks" progress bar displays the actions you must take before submitting the supplemental application. The original building permit application workspace is accessible under "Related Workspaces."
