Owner Builder Declarations

Effective March 1, 2009, State law (Health and Safety Code Section 19825) requires certain forms be filed by owner-builders before obtaining a permit. If you are not using a licensed contractor to perform the work, you must fill out and return to the Permit Service Center the Owner Builder Verification & Limitation of Sale Forms before obtaining a permit. 

Authorization of Agent Form
If you are using an authorized agent (i.e., a relative, friend or permitting service company) to obtain the building permit, you must fill out and return to the Permit Service Center the Authorization of Agent Form before obtaining a permit.
