Property Permit History

Need information about a property’s Permit history?

An account must be created in order to see any information on inspection results, issuance status, brief description of the scope of work, contractor information and more. For recent records from the past 5 years, please conduct a records search using our online tool.

Use the link above☝🏽 to see basic information for all permits issued within the last 10 years.

For older public records of properties, PDF copies can be requested by making a request through the City Clerk's Office.

Keep in mind state law only requires The City of Rancho Palos Verdes to keep commercial and some multi-family structural plans. The Department therefore only keeps single family residential plans during construction and discards them 90 days after completion of the work. The space required to store all the plans of every house built in the Rancho Palos Verdes makes it prohibitive to keep them. Your best hope to find the as-built plans for any structure is to contact the original builder, designer, and/or engineer.
