Who can pull a permit?
  • A permit can be pulled by a licensed contractor or a homeowner that resides at the property.
  • A landlord/owner, who does not reside at the home, is not authorized to pull a permit. In order to receive an exemption to Chapter 489 of the Florida Statutes, which requires the use of a licensed contractor to do the work, the residence must be for the use and occupancy of the homeowner only. It may not be built for sale or lease.
  • Any applicant that is within a Homeowner's Association (HOA) must obtain the HOA approval before applying for a permit.
