Reminder: We’re Updating Our Permitting System in Early 2017!

We’re replacing our current permitting system. It will be easier to use than the permit portal we have now! In early 2017, the Seattle Services Portal will allow you to:

  • Apply for a permit, access project updates, research property information, check the status of a complaint, find Rental Registration info, schedule inspections, and more all in one place
  • Access the information on your smartphone
  • Select project sites from a map, as well as with an address, when applying for permits or just doing research
  • Pay fees more easily, with the ability to pay all outstanding City of Seattle fees all at once


We’ll keep you updated on the upcoming changes and information that you’ll need to know. For instance, you’ll probably have to reset your password in the new Seattle Services Portal.

We’ll also publish several how-to guides which will be available on our website
