Town of Los Gatos inspection times are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., excluding holidays. Inspections can be scheduled 24 hours a day, but must be scheduled by 12 p.m. (noon), for a next business day inspection. Inspection requests received after 12 p.m. will be pushed to the following business day. Inspectors will make every effort to accommodate an a.m. or p.m. request, but it is not guaranteed. Usually a.m. inspections are between 9 and 11 a.m., and p.m. inspections are between 12 and 2 p.m., but time windows are estimates only. For a more specific time frame, please contact your field inspector directly between 8 and 9 a.m. to coordinate. If your inspector is out of the office, please contact the Counter Technicians for information on who will handle your inspection.
