Enter only the first 3 characters of Owner Name exactly as it is printed on your permit.** Count any space, number or symbol as a character.
**If your Permit-Issue-Date is after February 5th, 2003, Owner Name will be located in the top left-hand column of your permit, between Applicant Name and Property Address. Previous to that date, Owner Name was not printed on permits (see examples of how to enter Owner Name).
In some cases, the ownership of a property may have transferred since the date the permit was issued. When using WAIRS and in doubt, call the Department of Building and Development at 703-777-0220 for verification of ownership. Please have your permit number available when you call.
