CHANGE OF CONTRACTOR REQUIREMENTS
A Change of Contractor package is required when a permit has been Applied for,
but has NOT been Issued and the contractor will be different from the original
“contractor” of record listed on the permit application.
This may occur when the initial Contractor, for whatever reason, is terminated,
and a New Contractor or the Owner takes over the responsibility of completing
the job prior to issuance of the permit.
Please use the information below to assist in gathering the necessary paperwork
to file a Change of Contractor request:
1. → Application (a new application must be completed by New Contractor or
2. → Completed Change of Contractor Notification Letter

Builder name) if the job value is $2500.00 or more.
