Building Requirements

The following are building permit requirements when applying for permits in Val Verde County (if property location is within Amistad Land Use and zoning order area):
  • Delineation of 100 year Flood Plain if existing
  • Payment of $100 fee (check or money order only)
  • Provide complete set of building plans
  • Provide legal description of property
  • Provide the Plot Design that shows all structures (aerobic include spray area)
  • Provide proof of legal owner
  • Provide survey (if 5 acres or less)
We will complete the application form and will need both home owner and contractor’s signatures.

During the application process we have a checklist to do before we issue a Building Permit:
  • Verify batter boards
  • Verify plot design
  • Verify survey pins
Please be advised, Permits will be issued only when all necessary documentation has been provided. If a residence is being constructed or placed on the property it must be inspected prior to occupancy.
