Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, I am happy to assist you today.
You should meeting with the licensing department. Don't avoid it. You didn't mention whether you have a construction supervisor license but it doesn't matter that much, my answer is the same.
Since you are just a sub contractor, you are not ultimately responsible for getting the permits. The general contractor is responsible. You should be honest with the inspector, and just say you are happy to get any permits or licenses that you need for the job, if they weren't properly pulled by the GC.
What typically happens is that you would be required to get the proper permit, and might be charged a higher fee as a penalty. Sometimes they charge twice the fee. I wouldn't be too concerned about much more consequences.
I hope this helps and take care,Kim
