HOME OWNER'S PLEASE READ THIS PRIOR TO APPLYING A PERMIT OR HIRING A CONTRACTOR.
The Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation (OCABR) discourages homeowners from obtaining a building permit if you are hiring a contractor or contractors to preform work on your property. All contractors performing work on owner occupied 1- 4 family house are required to have a Home Improvement Registration (HIC). It is strongly recommended that homeowners hire registered contractors and that those contractors apply for permits under their registration. For more information on the HIC program please vist OCABR's web site, link below or you may contact Michael Morales at the Office of Consumer Affairs: 617-973-8706.
