There are roughly 12,500 businesses to inspect in the City of Virginia Beach, which includes all types of occupancies. Inspections are performed annually and are unannounced during specific times of the year. A guide of the 10 most frequent violations is available at the bottom of this page. Fire inspection reports will be left with a responsible party on scene, emailed, or mailed to the occupancy.
The FMB does not routinely inspect private homes or dwellings of any kind unless a request is placed; any concerns regarding private residential homes should be brought to the Department of Housing, they can be reached at 757-385-5750.
Please contact our office with any questions about annual inspections or to report any issues.
