Here’s a really handy site if you live in Los Angeles and want to get information on a project permit or parcel.  It’s much easier to use than the city’s portal and gives you a visual map to search detailed permit info with a few clicks of your mouse.

You can search for building permits and bids for Residential (single or dual family dwellings), Apartment (multi-family dwellings), or Commercial projects.

  • Narrow down your search by permit type and status
  • Examples of permit type include:
  • Building Addition
  • Building Alter/Repair
  • Building Demo
  • Building New

You can also add a text search term, such as the name of the contractor if you want to search for projects by a specific builder for example. Try it out and let us know what you think.
