Building Inspections

Lakewood City Hall is currently open to the public for in-person assistance on a limited basis. All visitors must wear a face covering and will receive a health screening as part of a check-in process prior to entering City Hall. Learn about the process to make an in-person visit to City Hall.

To help ensure the safety of our visitors and employees, we encourage you to call to speak with a building inspector during their scheduled consultation hours (see hours below).

The Building and Safety division of Community Development schedules inspections for new construction and home and business remodeling. Lakewood contracts with Los Angeles County Department of Public Works for building inspection services.

Building inspectors are available for consultation from 7 to 8:30 a.m. by phone Monday through Thursday and on open Fridays. City Hall is closed on alternating Fridays.

Help with scheduling an inspection is available by phone from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and on open Fridays. City Hall is closed on alternating Fridays.
