There are two types of relocations for residential and commercial structures:
- Relocating a structure from outside the city limits to inside the city limits; or from inside the city limits to a different location inside the city limits
- Relocating a structure from inside the city limits to outside the city limits
See Relocation Permit Application (PDF) for Submittal Requirements. This application applies to Residential and Commercial Structures.
A person receiving a permit to move a building along a public right-of-way in the city is responsible for contacting Austin Police Department for a uniformed police escort.
If the building exceeds 17 ft. 6 in. in height when loaded you are responsible for contacting Austin Energy for an escort.
