Building Inspections During COVID-19

To protect the wellbeing of City Staff and our customers, the City of Lewisville is suspending in-person inspections of occupied residential dwellings and in hospitals, nursing homes, retirement homes, assisted living facilities and other types of care facilities effective immediately and continuing throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. These inspections must be completed by remote video inspection or delayed until the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Please review the official notice for complete details on this temporary change in procedures.

To facilitate the inspection of minor yet critical repairs, some inspections are eligible to be completed as a remote video inspection using a video steaming app on a smart device. The Building Inspector will perform the inspection remotely while communicating with the contractor on a live video call. Please review the Remote Video Inspection (RVI) Program guidelines for complete details and requirements.
