Attention Contractors

  • When calculating permit fees, include 1.5% for FL Building Surcharge and 1.0% for FL Recovery Fund. These fees will be added to the permit cost for each permit type. If the 1.5% is less than $2.00, then the minimum of $2.00 will be added for each permit type. 
  • Faxed applications are no longer accepted. However, you may enter a new permit by applying online, or drop your complete permit documentation at 204 N. 5th Street, Leesburg, FL.    Please contact Building Services at 352-728-9735 if you have any questions.
  • Only current application forms indicating the “FBC 2023 (8th Edition)” and "NEC 2020" will be accepted.
