Inspections

While the Knightdale Development Services Department is your one-stop shop for permits, we contract with Wake County's Inspections Department to complete all building and trade inspections. Despite many of the inspections being made by Wake County inspectors, please note that the first (setback) and last (Certificate of Occupancy/Completion) inspections are made by the Town of Knightdale and not Wake County.

 

TOWN OF KNIGHTDALE INSPECTIONS

  • Setback Inspection: The first inspection called in for a building permit to ensure the structure is located correctly on the lot. The setback inspection must be completed prior to a footing inspection being scheduled.
  • Driveway/Sidewalk Inspection: This inspection is called in after the forms have been set, but before any concrete is poured.
  • Certificate of Occupancy (CO) Inspection: The final inspection made by the Town to ensure that all zoning issues have been addressed prior to issuance of a CO. This inspection is different than the Building Final, which is performed by Wake County.

To schedule any of the above noted inspections, please call (919) 217-2246 before 5 p.m. and leave a message with the permit number, address, type of inspection requested, and contact information. The inspection will be completed on the next business day.

 

WAKE COUNTY INSPECTIONS

All building and mechanical/trade inspections are completed by the Wake County Department of Planning, Development, and Inspections on behalf of the Town. To schedule any building or mechanical/trade inspections, please have your permit number ready and call (919) 856-6222 or you may schedule through the Permit Portal if you have an active account.
