(Examples of documents that require Affidavits: Construction plans, blue prints, architectural and engineer drawings, engineers’ calculations, soils reports, title 24, any document prepared by and or stamped by a licensed professional with a signature or seal.)

The property owner’s permission must be obtained before requesting permission from the design professional of record (architect/engineer).


Step 1.  The owner of the property must read and complete the Property Owner Affidavit form. The signature of the owner must be notarized or present, in person, valid identification and a copy of the Deed for the owner’s subject property must be provided. (*If the property has changed ownership within the last six (6) months, a Deed will be required to validate the property owner.)

Step 3. The Professional of Record must provide their permission to duplicate the plans by reviewing the request and signing the affidavit. The Professional(s) of Record must return their affidavit to the City of Santa Rosa along with the notarized Owner’s Affidavit.
