Pulling Owner/Builder Permits is Risky Business!
If you do not intend to do the work yourself and have been asked by someone without a a contractor's license to pull the permit, you are at the risk of financial harm both by penalty and injury.
Chapter 489.107(7), Florida Statutes: Owners of property must supervise the work being performed. Any person working on your building who is not licensed must be employed by you, which means that you must deduct F.I.C.A and withholding tax and provide worker's compensation for that employee.
Without workers compensation insurance, you could be held liable for injuries received on your property. Typically your homeowners' insurance policy will not honor your claim if the work being performed required a licensed contractor. You could end up responsible for thousands of dollars of medical bills.
Not only is it dangerous, but it's also a crime.,
Chapter 455.227, Florida Statutes: Any person who knowingly aides, procures employs or advises an unlicensed individual can be charged with a first degreemisdemeanor and may face fines of up to $5000 for each offense.

Absolutely. There are three types of licensing in the state of Florida that are allowed to do construction work; Certified Residential Building Contractor, Certified Building Contractor, and Certified General Contractor. We are a Certified General Contractor. This is the only legal license that can do work in condominiums or buildings higher than three stories.
