UTILITY PERMIT INSTRUCTIONS

 

Rankin County adopted an ordinance requiring a utility permit and inspection before there is a change in occupancy in any dwelling, building or structure (commercial or otherwise). The ordinance was adopted June 17, 2013, with an effective date of October 1, 2013. The following steps must be taken by the new occupant or property owner: 

  1. Complete Utility Permit Application
  2. Pay $100.00 Permit Fee
  3. Schedule an inspection. (This is an inspection of the interior and exterior of the home.)   

                                                                                                                                                                     EXCEPTION: If there has been a home inspection by a Mississippi licensed home inspector within 90 days of the utility permit application, the county may accept a copy of the report and waive the $100.00 permit fee. However, if the home inspection report, in the sole discretion of Rankin County, Mississippi, is inadequate, the structure shall be inspected by Rankin County, and the inspection fee shall be paid.

A copy of the entire home inspection report and utility permit application may be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to 601-824-2571, for review. We will contact you when the review process has been completed and advise you of any other actions that must be taken or fee that may be applicable.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Community development at 601-824-2570.
