    Hello Tom in Sacramento County!

    Your anonymity is very important. We really don't need to know more than that.

    You have probably found this info already:

    "Encroachment permits can be obtained by submitting an application with attachments to the County of Sacramento, Technical Resources, 827-7th Street, Room 105, Sacramento, CA 95814. Encroachment permit review typically takes 1 to 3 weeks. Fees associated with obtaining a permit are $103 for new driveway encroachment permits and $360.50 for all other permits. A $2,500 security deposit is also required prior to the issuance of a permit. In addition to these fees, inspection fees associated with this permit are charged to the permit holder at an hourly rate. "

    Link: Encroachment Permits

    Facing an initial $360.50 fee to start the process, along with posting a $2,500 bond ( ask your homeowner's insurance agent for a small spot fee to cover this) along with hourly rates, rate undisclosed, you should be in a position to ask some questions of the county.

    Having dealt with various county highway departments for longer than forty years, I can suggest some questions you might ask going in:

    Have fence encroachment requests ever been approved before?

    What is the hourly rate for "inspection"?

    If my permit is declined do I get a refund? If so, how much?

    If a permit is issued, being permissive, can permission be withdrawn? If so, how?

    Not gonna happen. You still seem to have misconceptions about homeowners insurance.

    :D

    Happened to me.

    I needed to post a $2,500 bond a few years ago and my homeowner's insurance agent arranged it for a small fee. A homeowner's insurance agent is usually licensed for multiple lines in property and casualty and can provide a variety of surety products.

    Most P & C agents can deal with the bonds and other products described here:

    Property And Casualty Insurance Glossary (Terms & Definitions)

    That would include surety bonds, performance bonds, etc.

    That's correct. Bonds are available through most insurance agencies.

    I thought you were still talking about homeowners insurance.
