Requirements for Transferring a Building Permit

Contact the Building Department at (801)446-5327 to determine the status of the project and what is required to finish the project. We can fax or email you a copy of the original permit and the inspection history to date. We can also give you the architect information so you can order a new set of plans if necessary (see item 4).

  1. Permit Transfer/Re-stamp Fee of $94.00.
  2. Fill out a new Permit Application Form, listing the new contractor and sub contractors as applicable.
  3. Fill out the Request for Transfer of Permit Ownership Form.
    a. Complete the property information section.
    b. The next section is to be filled out by the previous holder of the permit and be notarized. If the house has been foreclosed on, a letter from the bank/lienholder on their letterhead will be acceptable in place of this section. If the home has been purchased by an individual, a copy of the settlement statement or title is required in place of this section.
    c. The last section is to be filled out by the new contractor or owner/builder and be notarized. A copy of the new contractor’s State License is also required. If the new permit holder is going to act as an owner/builder, then also submit an Owner-Builder Declaration Form (see Owner/Builder Requirements).
  4. The original approved/stamped set of the constructions plans must be obtained and be onsite for inspectors if the house has not passed the rough 4-way inspection or at the determination of the inspector. If they are unavailable, you can call our office and we can give you the architect information so you can order a new set. The plans must be submitted for comparison to our office copy and be re-stamped for the new permit holder, which is part of the $94.00 permit transfer/re-stamp fee.

A new Power to Panel & Grading Agreement will need to be signed by the new contractor or owner/builder. These will be printed for you to sign at our office when you submit for the permit transfer.

Bring all of the above in to the Building Department at the City Office Building at 5355 West Herriman Main Street during our office hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Remember, the office is closed on State and Federal holidays.

Review and transfer will take approximately 30 minutes at the counter. If the plans need to be checked and re-stamped, it will take approximately 2 working days. The fee for permit transfer/re-stamp is $94.00 and can be paid by check (made payable to Herriman City) or by a Visa, Mastercard or American Express at the time of application.

All required inspections must be approved in order to receive a Certificate of Occupancy. Call the Building Department at (801)446-5327 at least one business day before you wish to schedule inspections (see Required Inspections).
