Who can be issued a building permit?
Building Permits are issued to construction supervisors licensed by the State Department of Public Safety. An exception to this requirement is that a building permit can be issued to homeowners doing work to the single or two family dwelling where the homeowner resides. Homeowners who receive building permits under this exception may be liable for contracting work on their property and are not eligible for protection under the provisions of the Home Improvement Contractor Law.
