Demolition FAQs for Rochester, NY

Is a demolition permit required in the city of Rochester?

The city of Rochester's Demolition Regulations state that a permit is required for the razing, demolition, disassembly, or removal of any structure or building, both residential and commercial.

How can I obtain a demolition permit in Rochester?

In order to receive a demolition permit in the city of Rochester, a demolition permit application must be filed with the city commissioner.

Once this application has been approved, a building permit will be granted that follows Chapter 39 of the City of Rochester Municipal Code.

What information is required to obtain a demolition permit in Rochester?

In order to receive a demolition permit in the city of Rochester, you must be able to provide the following information:

  • Your full name, street address, and interest in the property or structure to be demolished
  • The property owner's name and address (if it is different from your own) and the owner's signed consent
  • The street address of the property, and a legal description of the proposed demolition activity and future development plans for the property
  • A brief description of all hazardous substances (including asbestos) to which people may be exposed during the demolition

More details about the requirements needed to obtain a demolition permit are available in section 47 A-7 of the City of Rochester Demolition Regulations.

Who should I hire for my demolition project?

Generally speaking, the contractor you hire should be experienced in the work and licensed and insured to handle the job.

In some states, you only need a license if the total project cost is greater than a certain dollar amount, and some states simply require contractors to be registered.

If your state requires a license, always make sure the contractor you hire has the proper licensing. Our state-by-state contractor license guide is an excellent tool. You can learn your state’s licensing laws and make sure a specific contractor's license is up-to-date.

If a contractor's license number is not listed on their website or social media, quote sheets or contracts should show the contractor’s license number on the first page. If you don’t see it, this is a red flag. (Find out the other red flags!)

Never be afraid to ask a contractor for their license number, and make sure you understand the importance of having a bonded and insured contractor, too.
