[ARCHIVED] Updates to the Residential Inspection Process



In accordance with NC House Bill 120, and direction from the NC Department of Insurance, as of April 23, 2018 Onslow County will no longer require the following residential inspections:

  • Wall Sheathing
  • Open Floor Framing (Floor framing not hidden from view at rough-in)
  • Brick Ties and Unbolted Lintels

It will remain the responsibility of the permit holder to comply with the specific code requirements, however you will no longer be required to schedule inspections of these items.

We will continue to perform these inspections as a courtesy through June 1, 2018 if requested.  If you would like these inspections simply schedule them as you have in the past.

If you have questions regarding this process, please do not hesitate to contact the Residential Administrator, Jon Briggs at (910) 989-3063 or e-mail
