Additional Sink Affidavit

The Arlington County Permit Office is CLOSED for in-person customer service. Many services are available online. Learn more.

Any new sink installed outside of an existing kitchen or bathroom requires the submission of an additional sink affidavit. The additional sink affidavit replaces the now discontinued sink notification letter. The primary purpose of the affidavit is to ensure that the installation of a new sink does not result in the creation of an additional dwelling unit where one is not otherwise allowed. Several project types may require this affidavit (ex: basement wet bar). An additional sink affidavit is not required for Accessory Dwellings or Family or Caregiver Suites. For questions about additional sink affidavits, contact the Zoning Division: 703-228-3883.
