Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know that my building inspection is confirmed?

Between 8 and 8:30 a.m. on the day of your scheduled inspection, your inspector will call you with an approximate time to meet with you on site.

What if I’m going to be late?

If something delays you, please contact your Residential Building Inspector directly.

What if I need to cancel the inspection?

Call Service Regina at 306-777-7000 to cancel your inspection any time before 8 a.m. on the morning of your scheduled inspection. If you need to cancel after 8 a.m., you will be responsible for contacting your inspector directly.

Why can’t I just contact my inspector to arrange an inspection?

Residential Building Inspectors will spend most of their day on building sites. Using a single system for booking allows us to share information internally to provide coverage if an inspector is unavailable.

How do I know when to book my inspections?

See the chart on the residential inspections page, which explains the number of inspections you will need for each permit type and what work has to be complete for that inspection to take place.

What if I miss calling for an inspection and work continues?

It is your responsibility to call for an inspection when it is required. If you have not done so, the inspector may require you to expose what has not been inspected to his/her satisfaction for the inspection to be carried out appropriately.

Who should call the City for the inspections?

That is up to you to decide, but the preference is the site supervisor or general/main contractor. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that all inspections are called for at the appropriate time and that someone is on site to meet the inspector.

Will there be enough inspectors?

With our current inspection team and the current number of open building permits, we expect we will be able to meet the service standard of completing all requested inspections the next day.
