Do I need a contractor?

If you live in a condominium you need a contractor. If you own and occupy your one and two-family house you may be eligible to act as your own contractor per State statute (489.103 (7) If owner is acting as contractor, they must sign the Owner Builder Disclosure Affidavit and must be able to complete all the work themselves, you must supervise the work, and/or hire licensed trade sub-contractors i.e (electrical, plumbing, hvac, roof). This is needed with the application.
