Getting Your City of Marietta Building Permit by Yourself

Before you begin the process of getting a , you must first find out if your building project is going to require one. According to the City of Marietta building permit web page,

"A permit is required whenever an owner or contractor intends to: construct new, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish a building or structure, or install or alter any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system. In addition, utility construction and site development also require permits".

Some examples are:

  • New HVAC, heating, air, or both
  • Outdoor structures
  • New home construction
  • Older home remodel

Let's say for the sake of this post, we want to obtain a building permit in Marietta, Georgia for a new home construction project. The cost of the building permit would be calculated this way;

  • $4 per $1000 of total construction cost (labor + material)
  • $50 base fee
  • No plan review fee

Applying for Your Marietta Building Permit

All permitting is done online using SAGES software. You can find more information on SAGES here where you must first create an account.

Before you go to SAGES for the application process, get your documents in order. The documents you are going to need are determined by the project you are building. That can include residential or commercial, interior or exterior only, general contractor, or homeowner as a contractor.

Use this list of the needed documents for reference:

Residential-General Contractor

  • Copy of your general contractor's state license
  • Copy of your general contractor's business license
  • Photocopy of general contractor's driver's license
  • A detailed set of construction plans approved by the state of Georgia Planning Commission, any addition or subtraction from the structure will require the signature of a Georgia licensed structural engineer.
  • A site plan that shows an overhead two-dimensional view of the site where the structure will be built and any changes/modifications to the site before construction can begin.

Residential-Homeowner as General Contractor

  • A notarized property owners affidavit (click here for a copy)
  • Proof of ownership (deed or utility bill)
  • Photocopy of applicants driver's license
  • Construction plans (as above)
  • Site plans (as above)

If you are going to use a general contractor, you must first hire them as you will need their licensing information for your building permit application.

Also note, if you are going to be disturbing the land before construction begins you will need a 'Land Disturbance Permit' which will cost you an additional $30 flat rate for residential property owners.

Also note, you cannot send any photocopies of plans or permits for submittal. There are particular guidelines to follow for these items.

So far we have chased down documents for the site of the construction project, for the general contractor, the structure, and gotten everything signed and notarized followed by the application fee.
