Fee Schedule

TEXAS ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS

PLAN REVIEW & INSPECTION FEE SCHEDULE

Use the total construction cost to determine the appropriate fees in the fee schedule. The final inspection fee may be included with the review fee at the time of submittal. Be sure to include the $175 state filing fee and the $50 Convenience Fee if you want us to register your project and pay the state filing fee.

Very Important: If the inspection fee is not paid at the time of the plan review fee please notify the property owner that the fee must be paid and the inspection requested after completion of construction. This may help avoid administrative action, including sanctions and penalties, against the owner by the TDLR.

Note: The previously provided credit card payment option has been removed due to persons overpaying or underpaying the fees, as well as selecting the wrong fee type. This required a considerable amount of time every day to refund fees, send emails, and make phone calls. So, please pay by check or money order. If you do not have the ability to write checks or obtain a money order, please contact us. We will look for a way to re-implement this option on the website in the future. Thanks for understanding.

Before paying a fee amount that includes the $175 state project filing fee, make sure that the project has not already been registered with the state. If the project has already been registered, then the $175 state filing fee has been paid. To determine if a project has already been registered, click here.

Important: A project with a construction cost that is less than $50,000 is not required to be registered with the TDLR or receive a plan review or inspection (compliance is required regardless of the cost). If a building permit department is insisting on a "TDLR number" and the construction cost is less than $50,000, please print out the FAQ's published by TDLR, specifically General FAQ Number 5 "Do I have to submit plans for an accessibility plan review?", and provide that to the permitting authority.

Special Fees not in the Fee Schedule:

TDLR Late Project Filing Fee (uncommon)
$300.00. This is a fee that is required by the state in lieu of the $175 State Project Filing Fee when a project is registered AFTER construction has been completed. In this case, you will need to register the project. We do not register late projects.

Special Interim Inspection Fee
$250.00 minimum. Includes an informal, walking inspection with observations and comments regarding the construction in progress. This does NOT include a written report. Owner's rep or site rep MUST be present to take notes, etc. If interested give us a call, but we must be hired to perform the "official" post-construction inspection before performing an interim inspection.

Construction Not Completed - Inspection Cancelled
$150.00. If the inspection is called for and the project is not 100% completed at the time of arrival on site a penalty fee may be required PRIOR to rescheduling the inspection. Please do not attempt to pre-schedule an inspection before construction is completed. We have a very tight schedule and cannot be jerked around with changing completion dates.
