Request an Inspection

Effective May 1, 2023, all permit submittals and payments for the City of Burien will only be accepted through MyBuildingPermit. Paper and email submissions will no longer be accepted.

To request an inspection, please try to schedule on MyBuildingPermit first. If you are unable to request your inspection on MyBuildingPermit, please call our Inspection Hotline at (206) 248-5525. When leaving a voicemail, please provide your name and phone number, as well as the permit related to the inspection. Please note that the inspection hotline will not provide a confirmation number.

When making inspection requests or payments for permits, please use the City of Burien permit number issued to your permit, not the MBP application number (the number which begins with "E" is not the permit number).

Inspection requests must be received before 7 a.m. on the day of inspection. Special requests for morning or afternoon inspections may be submitted but cannot be guaranteed.

Please Note: Effective October 2, 2023, inspection requests must be received before 3:30 p.m. the day before the inspection.

For Fire Sprinkler or Fire Alarm Permits, please contact the Burien Fire Department at least 48 hours in advance of the inspection date by calling (206) 242-2040 ext. 119.

For Right-of-Way Inspections, please call (206) 439-3162 at least 24 hours in advance.
