Error Messages Explained:

If you get this - "The Pin Number entered is not valid. Please try again."

 

Try this - Try entering the permit number and pin number again.  Remember, the pin number should be 5-

              digits and the permit number should be 8-digits.  Both numbers are located in the upper right hand

              corner of your permit (not the job card). 

If you get this - "The Permit Number and Pin Number entered are not valid. Please call (714) 647-

                       5853 for further assistance."


Try this - Make sure you are entering the correct numbers in the correct fields: 

              Building Permit numbers will always start with 1

              Electrical Permit numbers will always start with 2

              Plumbing Permit numbers will always start with 3

              Mechanical Permit numbers will always start with 4

              Grading Permit numbers will always start with 5

 

If you get this - "The Permit Status is not valid.  Inspections may only be scheduled for a permit

                       issued and not yet finaled.  A Permit that is expired or void cannot be inspected."


Try this - Verify that you have entered the correct permit number and pin number for the permit you would

              like to schedule the inspection for.  This message likely means that your permit has not yet been

              issued, is already finaled, or has expired.  To view the inspections that have taken place at your

              property go to the City's online inspection history to look up your property by address.
