A.R.S.§32.1121A.6 requires "Developer's" who intend to sell or rent the property within one year to utilize licensed general contractors for all new construction. Improvements to structures or appurtenances for sale or rent must be performed by a licensed general contractor or licensed specialty contractor. To qualify for this exemption, the licensed contractor's names and license numbers shall be included in all sales documents.
DEMOLITION PERMIT: required prior to any demo.
GRADING PERMIT: required per 2006 International Building Code J103.1 except as exempted in Section J103.2, no grading shall be performed without first having obtained a permit therefor from the building official. A grading permit does not include the construction of retaining walls or other structures.
Pursuant to A.R.S. § 48-3645, La Paz County establishes timeframes for which an Approval or Denial Statement will be issued for each type of permit that it reviews. The overall time frame for each type of permit states separately the administrative completeness review time frame and the substantive review time frame. These time frames include La Paz County’s review time and not the time the applicant takes responding to notices of deficiencies for either the administrative or substantive review.
Applications shall be accompanied by a site plan indicating the lot, parcel, or tract identifying the location where the work will be performed. 2 (two) sets of plans are required with each application. Once the permit application is approved, you will be issued your permit and it must be accessible to the inspector at the job site during inspections.
The Building Inspector may issue a “stop work” order for work not consistent with the plans and site plan submitted. Permits shall not be issued for structures not conforming to the requirements of these Zoning Regulations.
