DOB NOW is the Department’s self-service online tool that will enable Owners, Design Professionals, Licensees, and Filing Representatives to do all business with the Department online.  DOB NOW is part of our Building One City plan to provide better customer service and increased access to information. It allows customers to submit applications, make payments, schedule appointments, check the status of an application or inspection, pull permits, and make renewals.

DOB NOW has four parts:

  • DOB NOW: Inspections  is the new name for Inspection Ready that provides access to online scheduling, tracking, and notifications as well as enforcement and development inspections.

These work types currently can be submitted in DOB NOW: Build: Antenna, Curb Cut, Electrical, Elevator, Fence, Plumbing, Sidewalk Shed, Sign, Sprinkler, Standpipe and Supported Scaffold. Additional work types will be added throughout 2018 and 2019.
