The Building Inspection Department provides step-by-step guidance to the citizens of Halifax County on making any improvements to real estate. The inspection department organizes, files and keeps copies of all previous permits issued by other departments prior to the issuing of their own permits. For example, well & septic tank, authorization of construction and zoning permits that are all needed before a permit from the inspection department can be issued. All building plans are to be reviewed by a certified building official of this department.
The Inspection Department keeps records of state licensed and unlicensed contractors in North Carolina. The inspection department is responsible for the issuance of building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, insulation and mobile home set-up permits. The inspectors ensure that structures in the county's unincorporated areas are built safe and by the N.C. State Building Code by performing routine inspections. The department keeps accurate records from start to finish of structures. The department also performs fire inspections on schools, day-cares, and all other type businesses and is responsible for administering the county's Minimum Housing Code. This department works very closely with the Health & Zoning Departments.
