Hi,

Thank you for your question.

Under California law, if you are not the owner of the building, you cannot perform construction or have an unlicensed contractor perform work on the property. Accordingly, your landlord may rightly insist that you use a licensed contractor.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Please also kindly consider rating my answer positively so that I am compensated by the website for my work on your question. Rating positively does not cause an additional charge and does not prevent us from further discussing your questions.

Best Regards,
