How do I start a home-based business in the City of La Habra?

A home-based business requires a Home Occupation Permit Application (HOPA), with a one time fee as specified in the Master Fee Schedule. The HOPA must be approved by Planning Division. It usually takes 3 - 5 working days. You will be notified whether your permit is approved or not approved. If your HOPA is approved, you will be issued an approval number, and you must then apply for a City Business License. You can fill-up the application online, pick up an application at City Hall Cashier's window or contact the Planning Division at 562-383-4100.
