Rebuilding After a Flood

Posted by Communications Department on Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Over 1,900 apartment units were effected by the recent flood. If you own or manage one of those properties, you are probably in the midst of rebuilding and you know that the permitting process can be a daunting one. The Houston Apartment Association has been working with the City of Houston, and they want to ensure a smooth permitting process to get residents back in their units as soon as possible.

To guide you through this process the City has provided us with a Post-Storm Permitting guide, a sample of the building permit application for your review, a project cost estimate and their flood damage repair checklist.

When you go by the permitting center located at 1002 Washington Ave B1 in Houston, make sure to identify yourself as a flood affected property owner and they will help you through the process.
