Who can take out (sign for) a Building Permit?

In order to issue a Building Permit the signature of the legal property owner or a California Licensed Contractor is required. 

To verify a Contractor’s License, you can visit the CSLB website.

An agent for either party may sign for the permit, provided the agent submits written authorization from the owner or contractor prior to the issuance of the permit.
