The Permit Group issues building permits for the un-incorporated areas of Harris County. We do not have records for the areas of the County that are within the City limits of the municipalities that are within Harris County. Please contact the municipalities directly for these records. A list of the most requested phone numbers is provided on this page.
Building permits have been required for new construction since Oct. 1973 and septic licenses have been required for new or modified systems since July 1978. The preferred method of requesting information is by email request. Fax requests can be sent to 832-927-0004, and walk-ins are also accepted 8am-4pm, Monday thru Friday. If coming in person to our office at 10555 Northwest Freeway, Suite 134, please allow time for your records request to be researched and printed, and allow time for your payment to be made to the cashier before the cashier closes at 4:00 pm.
