I have a retail resale permit but not a contractor's license. I do not market my business as being a contractor. I utilize licensed contractors to install high end appliances and cabinets that I sell to insure it is done properly and satisfies warranty requirements from the vendor. I pay the subcontractor directly and charge the client.

Not needed, since you are not a contractor, and have licensed subs.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
