FOR CONSTRUCTION - The City of Dripping Springs uses Bureau Veritas, a third-party company, to review and ensure project plans meet or exceed all applicable building codes and City adopted Ordinances. As a project progresses into the construction phase, Bureau Veritas will perform field inspections to ensure the project is built/installed in compliance with building and City codes. This process helps ensure your safety and the safety of those who live on the property. The permit process takes about 30 days for new, ground-up construction. Meanwhile alteration and upgrade permits typically take two weeks or less to issue.
For more information on what’s required to obtain a building permit, please email our Building Permit Technician: firstname.lastname@example.org

Q: As the home owner can I pull my own permits?
A: A Homestead Exemption permit may be issued to non-licensed individuals to perform plumbing, electrical and mechanical work within the dwelling premises that they own and occupy. Before beginning any work, the unlicensed person must first sign an affidavit stating that the applicant owns and occupies the structure and is responsible for conducting the work to code specifications, provide proof of ownership from Hays County Appraisal District and pay all required permit fees. Home owner exemptions do not apply to rental or commercial properties.
When applying for a permit as the home owner please ensure the Home Owners Exemption Affidavit is included with your permit application.
