Licensed Contractors

Home owners can sign an affidavit and be issued permits in their name, so long as they are acting as the general contractor, or are actually doing the work themselves. In all other circumstances, permits are only issued to Georgia licensed contractors.

For more information on the requirements for contractor licensing contact the Georgia State Licensing Board at (478) 207-2440, or the Greater Atlanta Home Builder Association Contractor Licensing Help Line at (678) 775-1498. You may also visit the Georgia Secretary of State's website.
