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. *DO NOT PAY THESE TWO FEES IF YOUR PROJECT HAS ALREADY BEEN REGISTERED AND HAS A TABS NUMBER. The state does not refund filing fees so make sure the project has not been registered with TDLR Architectural Barriers. Search the TDLR's Architectural Barriers Projects Database.

Checks shall be made payable to 'Texas Access' at our Main Project Intake Office. Be sure to write the TABS Number or Project Name on the check. If you need an invoice, please use our self-generating invoice.

Failure to include the Project Name or TABS number with the check could result in a lost or misapplied payment for which we will not be held responsible.

Credit Card Payment Option: If you want to pay the fees with a credit card instead of a check, 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 an inspection (compliance with the standards is required regardless of the cost, there just won't be any oversight by the state). 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.

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.

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
$250.00. 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.
