The Lake County Department of Growth Management offers online permitting for single-family dwelling units, residential additions and small commercial permits.
As part of the online permitting process, an architect or engineer must be able to digitally/electronically sign their plans for a single-family dwelling unit, commercial structure, site plan or preliminary plat. The specific requirements an engineer has to meet for a digital signature are found in the Florida Administrative Code 61G15-23.003 and for an architect they are found at 61G1-16.005.
For your convenience, below is a sample list of companies that create digital/electronic signatures that meet the requirements of the Florida Administrative Code (FAC). Please ensure, with the company you choose, that the specific requirements of the FAC will be met; also, that the digital/electronic signatures are usable on PDF documents, as we will only be accepting PDF documents for online permitting/submittals.
Be advised that Lake County does not endorse any of the companies listed, nor has Lake County thoroughly researched the qualifications of these companies; they are listed as a helpful tool in your process of obtaining a digital/electronic signature.
