Book an Inspection

Residential Licensing Inspections

All residential licensing inspection requests must first go through the City of London Building Division.  After the Building Division has accepted your application, the information will be sent to the Fire Prevention Division and an Inspector will contact you to set up the inspection.  When filling out the Owners Authorization Form, please remember to include the phone number or email address for the person responsible for allowing us access to the property.  Information on Residential Licensing requirements can be found here.

Real Estate or Refinancing Inspections

If you are selling or refinancing a property, you may require a fire inspection as a condition of sale or financing.  Requests for these inspections must be in writing and provide contact information for both the owner and any Property Manager if applicable.  Please allow yourself a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the deadline for the inspection to take place.  If any violations are noted, they will need to be corrected before the final letter can be issued.  Failure to do so may affect the sale or refinancing of the property.  Please fill out and return the fire inspection request form to start the process of scheduling an inspection.

Display Fireworks/Pyrotechnics Inspections

City of London Fireworks By-law requires anyone holding a display of fireworks or pyrotechnics to first obtain a permit issued by the Chief Fire Official.  The permit application must be obtained a minimum of 21 days prior to the event taking place.  Please read through the by-law to make sure your application package contains all the required information.
