Who should obtain the permit?

The person that secures the permit is the person who is held responsible for the work that is done. If a homeowner hires a contractor, the contractor should obtain the permit. The Building Department has no jurisdiction over a contractor if the homeowner obtains the permit for his contractor. Homeowners should confirm that the contractor they have hired to do work for them has secured the necessary permit and ordered the required inspections.
