Cancellation & Permit Extension

PERMIT CANCELLATION

 
All permit holders or applicants of the permit have the right to apply for a cancellation of their permit and request for refunds because of the following reasons:

• A project is cancelled;
• A contractor gets a permit for a job they are bidding for, but doesn’t get the job; or
• Duplicate permits are obtained, perhaps because both an owner and a contractor have applied.

Who can request for permit cancellation?



Only the signed applicant of the permit has the authority to make a request for cancellation/request for a refund. If the requestor is not signed as the applicant of the permit, then he/she should at least provide a letter of authorization from the signed applicant that indicates that they are allowing the requestor to make the request on their behalf with their signature.

Applicant/Requestor can also submit their request by submitting a letter with their signature or write us via email.
