Who should get the building permit, my contractor or me?

Permits are issued to the person, owner, or contractor who shall physically perform the work for which the permit was sought.

Contractors must have a valid and current registration or license before applying for a permit.

An individual can apply for a homeowners permit if the individual owns and resides at the house. The homeowner must physically perform the work for the project.

 There is no savings for a homeowner to apply for a permit for a contractor.
