What fees must I pay?

The permit fee for the repair of a masonry chimney is a flat fee. In addition to the permit fee, a filing fee and microfilming fee will be required. Please refer to the fee schedule for the current rates or contact a Permit Technician at (650) 599-7310 for an estimate of your permit costs.

Plans which require review by our structural plan checker, due to engineering or other complications will also require a plan check fee.
