Yes. Any new tenant, whether renting or owning, is required to have an occupancy permit. The property owner or manager should set up the permit and a obtain a passed inspection prior to a new tenant moving in. Once the inspection has passed, the new resident will come in to City Hall to complete the process.
The current owner or landlord is responsible for applying for the permit and arranging a housing inspection. The inspection fee is $45 and must be paid prior to the inspection. If more than 2 inspections are required, each additional inspection is $25.
After the unit has passed the inspection, the new tenant or owner completes the application for Residential Occupancy Permit and pays a $25 charge. The application must be completed and payment must be made before the permit certificate is issued. If you are financing the home purchase, most lenders will require you to have a passed occupancy inspection prior to closing the loan.
The inspection is done for $45 and is typically done by the current owner/property manager, who generally pays for the necessary repairs, if any. If more than 2 inspections are required, $25 per inspection will be charged.
An occupancy permit cannot be issued until the house/unit passes the inspection.

Yes a permit is required for new fences and replacing or repairing existing fences.
Chain link fences are no longer permitted.
Yes. And, the "good side" of the stockade fence must face outward toward the public or the adjoining property owners.
All permitting is done online through the MyGov portal. We no longer do paper applications. Exterior work requires a boundary survey. Some applications will require and architect seal on plans. Minor construction activity, such as a yard shed, does not require drawings with an architect's seal. If you have questions, contact the Planning & Developmen Dept at 314.963.8602.
It depends on how many applications have been filed ahead of yours. Normally, it takes just a few days, but it may take as long as two weeks depending on the number of plans and permits under review.
Not for building, electrical, mechanical or plumbing jobs or demolition permits.
