I have some issues with my contractor and I am investigating all licensing issues. One question is I see the request for permit to built was signed by a licensed subcontractor not the prime contractor. Once the permit was issued, it was signed by another party representing the contractor. *** Does the representative of the contractor who signs have to be an employee, or partner? Or can the prime contractor have an agreement with an independent contractor to sign for them? Does this imply an unlicensed person contracted to build?
An independent contractor is a person or business that provides goods or services under the terms of a contract or verbal agreement.
A mechanic's lien is given when someone repairs or improves property, but doesn't get paid for it. These liens prevent the easy sale of that property.
