Getting a building permit in Los Angeles can be a long, difficult, and confusing process. There’s a lot of steps and red tape involved, and building permits are required for new constructions, additions, alterations, and demolition/removal of a building or structure (so, pretty much everything). When you add in cities with further requirements, such as Malibu’s Local Coastal Program, things get even trickier.

Our Los Angeles team is proud of our 100% success rate at getting a building permit. Since we understand how confusing the permitting process can be, our team put together this infographic to clarify the Malibu planning process for a coastal development property. All developments in Malibu are required to abide by this process, so whether you’re building your dream home or looking to remodel your house, our infographic has you covered.
