A disaster could be hiding around any corner during a construction project, especially when you are dealing with improper licensing. Luckily, there are some things you can do to prevent a complicated construction project.
Improper Licensing Issues Come Up More Often Than They Should
All contractors, subcontractors, and other parties involved in a construction project should be properly licensed.
However, some contractors could claim they are licensed, when in fact they are not. Everything might be going well, but if ANY issue comes up and you find out the party you are working with is not correctly licensed, then you are in for a bumpy ride.
Take the extra time and effort to confirm that every party you are working with is properly licensed and insured. It is most definitely worth it to avoid any additional risks.
How to Verify Licensing
First, you want to make sure that the party you are working with is following all of the correct requirements at the local and state level. The Registrar of Contractors are the ones in charge, and all construction companies need to adhere to their regulations.
Always talk with an attorney that specializes in Arizona construction law or whatever state you are in to fully understand all of the local and state requirements. Some construction projects may require additional licensing.
What if I Run Into an Issue?
If you do run into an issue regarding proper licensing and your construction project, it could end up causing you to pay fines and face penalties. This can hurt your project and business.
When the issue is because you were dealing with an improperly licensed party, you can file a complaint or claim to ensure that your reputation is protected.
It is always best to prevent running into this issue in the first place, so remember to take the time to verify all of the parties you are working with on your construction project are properly licensed.
