Determine permit requirements. (cont.)

There is additional information regarding permits that we feel compelled to share with you. NEVER let a contractor talk you into pulling the permit yourself. We can’t stress this enough. This puts all the responsibility and liability on your shoulders. ALWAYS require the contractor to pull the permit in their company’s name. Keep this in mind…typically there are only two types of contractors that do all the work themselves: those that aren’t licensed by the state, and those that are licensed, but are willing to gamble their license and do the work without a permit. Most of the time if they don’t want to pull a permit, there’s a reason why and it won’t be favorable for you. Even as a residential / general contractor, the state requires us to use subcontractors in their respective trades on our projects. This includes electricians, plumbers, HVAC contractors and others. When these trades go down to the building department, they “sign up” and work under the residential / general contractor’s permit....more
