ePermit Permit Service

Apply and receive your permit for qualifying single-trade projects online. No plans required. More information is available on the EZ Permit webpage.


Property Owners no longer need an account to use the ePermit web service.

Contractors will need to register the first time to be able to use these online services. Once you are registered, you can use your account for any of the online services we offer.

All SolarApp+ applications shall be submitted by a valid, licensed California contractor who qualifies as a B-General or C-10 Electrical or C-46 Solar.

Below is a list of online services that you can access through this portal:
  • Submit online account request
  • Change online account password

  • Contractors and Homeowners can process, pay & print permit cards online! Most projects meeting the over-the-counter (OTC) criteria, that do not require plan review, can be processed using ePermit. For projects requiring plan review, use ePlan Review.

    OTC examples include: Reroofing, water heater replacements, minor electrical alterations & service panel replacements, forced air & air conditioner unit replacements, minor mechanical alterations, minor plumbing alterations, window replacements (like for like), sheetrock/siding/stucco replacement, and fireplace inserts.
  • Pay fees online
    (When using a credit card online, there is a 2.29% convenience fee charged by the credit card processor. This is not a Santa Cruz County fee.)
