Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.HERE IS The LINK so you can review the Florida law in this regardBasically it says the owner of a property may do the work themselves or if they choose to hire a non licensed person they will need to sign a Disclosure Statement when applying for the permits. The Disclosure Statement is also in that law.To qualify for exemption under this subsection, an owner must personally appear and sign the building permit application and must satisfy local permitting agency requirements, if any, proving that the owner has a complete understanding of the owner’s obligations under the law as specified in the disclosure statement in this section.
It also states, that when you hire a non licensed contractor, you risk not being able to get a judgment against them for incomplete or shabby or otherwise poor work.Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
