Who should call for inspections?
Generally, whoever pulls the permit (homeowner or contractor) should be calling in for the inspections. It frequently happens that contractors pull permits and homeowners are unaware they did. This is confusing for the homeowner when they eventually find out they have an open permit on their property.

The only way to close a permit is to have the work inspected by a city inspector. It is also quite common for rough inspections to be called in, but then the finals do not get called in and the permit remains open.
