Home Owner of Record
A homeowner can obtain a permit to do the construction, alteration or repair of a one or two-family dwelling and accessory buildings or facilities thereto if:
The owner resides or intends to reside in the dwelling, showing proof of residence and ownership. The construction is performed by the owner, and the owner signs a statement that no person will be employed in a manner as to become subject to the workers' compensation laws of the State of California.

Approved Grading Plans (if required by Engineering Division)
County Sanitation District of Los Angeles (new single-family residence)
School Fees Paid (for new habitable construction 500 sq. ft. or more)
