Building Inspections - Effective April 2, City of McKinney Inspectors will not enter existing homes to conduct inspections.

  • When we receive an inspection request for an existing home we will contact the homeowner and provide the option to defer inspection to a later date.
  • If the homeowner elects to have an inspection the contractor is required to be on site and use Face Time to conduct the inspection while the Inspector remains outside.
  • Questions? Contact our office at 972‐547‐7400.

All inspections must be scheduled through Citizen Self Service. View the “How to Schedule an Inspection Using CSS” video at
