Atlanta Amends Ordinances to Collect Building Permit Fees Upfront

Anyone applying for a building permit with the City of Atlanta will now have to pay a nonrefundable minimum initial permit fee of $75.00 and a Technology Surcharge of $25.00.  The City will also require payment of 50% of the total building permit fee before it will begin plan review.

Previously, the City did not collect building permit fees until the issuance of the permit.  The City amended its  ordinances in an effort to collect money upfront and recover lost revenue on abandoned and inactive permit applications.

You can review the ordinance here courtesy of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.
