Building Department COVID-19 Response

The Building Commissioner’s office works to ensure the health, welfare and safety of Bellwood residents. Each year, the entire village is inspected during an area exterior inspection that helps to maintain and promote property values while preserving the quality of life in Bellwood. All residential and commercial properties are inspected before selling, leasing or renting. Multiple unit and commercial properties are inspected annually.

The department issues:

  • Building permits
  • General and replacement permits
  • Room addition or new construction permits
  • Fence permits

The Building Department also manages the contractors licensing process and sale of a property. A pre-sale inspection that costs $175 is required for the sale of a house or commercial business.
