HOW TO OBTAIN A FINAL STATE ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS INSPECTION

The following items MUST be included together and submitted as one package to prevent delays in processing:

1.  A fully completed TDLR Request for Inspection Form. This form MUST BE SIGNED AND DATED BY THE OWNER OR OWNER'S DESIGNATED AGENT (IF AN OWNER AGENT DESIGNATION FORM IS ON FILE WITH US). We can no longer conduct a final inspection without this form. This includes all current projects where we have been paid previously to perform the final inspection.

2.  If the Owner is to designate an Agent to act on its behalf, then we must also receive a fully completed TDLR Owner Agent Designation Form. SEE BELOW.

The Owner, Owner's Agent, or any other party (simply an 'Owner Designee') must be present during the inspection. This person's presence, including full contact information, will be documented in a TDLR Proof of Inspection Form that will be attached to the inspection report that is provided to the Owner or Owner's Designated Agent.

3.  A check payable to 'Texas Access' for the Inspection Fee amount in the Fee Schedule. Use the construction cost provided by the design professional in the Project Registration Form to determine the applicable inspection fee. The public can obtain the recorded project construction cost as well as other detailed project information, by searching the TDLR's Projects Database. Before submitting an inspection fee payment, please be sure to check our Inspection Area Map for our coverage area.

Send the above via courier, regular or express mail to our Main Project Intake Office.

IMPORTANT! Incomplete forms that are submitted to Texas Access as part of the submittal requirements may be rejected and could delay the inspection of the project.


VERY IMPORTANT: In the event that the final inspection fee was prepaid to Texas Access at time of the initial project submittal, and the inspection is not requested utilizing a TDLR Request for Inspection Form within the first anniversary of the RECORDED project completion date, the final inspection fee, in its entirety, will be forfeited by Rule (TDLR Administrative Rule 68.80(g)).

RESPONDING TO TEXAS ACCESS AFTER A FAILED INSPECTION

ATTENTION OWNERS AND OWNER'S DESIGNATED AGENTS: After a failed inspection you will need to fully complete and submit a TDLR Inspection Response Form to us within 270 days after the date of the inspection. If that form is not received by us within the 270 day window to complete any violations, we will be required to forward the project file to the TDLR for administrative action.

If you are not the Owner (holding title to the property), then we must be in receipt of a fully completed and signed TDLR Owner Agent Designation Form authorizing you to act as its Agent.
