Welcome to the City Of Charleston's

Citizen Access Portal (CAP)

CAP allows anyone to view permits, inspections and other related information - no account necessary to view public records.

ALERT: On Monday May 10, 2021, the City's Permit Center (2 George Street) will not be open to the public and the online system will be down. The City will be upgrading our system to enhance capabilities and improve customer service. Please plan accordingly.

CAP performs best in Internet Explorer 11. Printing permits requires Internet Explorer 11.
EReview Software requires Microsoft Silverlight - users or their IT departments can find silverlight as a download.
