Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Do I need a permit to put a fense around my house?

ANSWER:
If you live in an unincorporated area in of Los Angeles County, a building permit is not required to construct a fence less than 6'0" in height. However, depending on the location of the fence (front yard, side yard, or back yard), you may need to obtain approval from the Department of Regional Planning. We have provided a link to their web site below for your convenience.

If you live within an incorporated city you should check with your city's planning department.
