Building Inspection Underwriters – BIU

West Homestead Borough works together with BIU – Building Inspection Underwriters (BIU) for most our permitting, inspection and code enforcement needs. All building permits and inspections are completed by BIU.

When a permit is necessary, you will bring the completed application to the Borough office, located at 456 West Eighth Ave, West Homestead, PA 15120. Once received, the permit will be date stamped and but in the bin for BIU to pick up. Once BIU approves the permit it will be returned to the borough office and processed in. We will contact you to let you know that the permit is ready to be picked up and the fee for the permit. Payments can be made with either Cash or Check. Checks should be made payable to West Homestead Borough.

Below you will find many of the permits and guides needed to successfully fill out and submit the permit. As always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Borough Office and we will assist.
