    Hello, I am having major issues finding a licensed general contractor to complete my rehab project. They are relatively small projects I’ve been told by several professionals in the industry therefore making them unattractive to the average remodel or construction agency. I’m in the state of NC and you do not need to be licensed as a general contractor to bid and complete jobs as long as the job is not over $30,000 and the work being completed does not require you to be licensed (ie plumbing & electrical). My question is, can I use a contractor (somewhat like a handyman) that has a business registered with the state, general liability insurance a w9 and banking information? Naca does not claim any responsibility for the contractors craftsmanship or professionalism so why limit my ability to use quality, available, economical contractors that are operating legally under state guidelines; for example You have flooring vendors on your approved list that are not “licensed” contractors so I thought perhaps the same principle would/could apply. Thank you in advance for your help.

    My understanding is the vendor must have the following:
    License and/or certification
    Proof of insurance
    Valid W-9 Tax Identification

    I pulled the information from https://www.naca.com/faqs/purchase-program/property-condition/

    How does a contractor register with NACA is the question that provided the information.



    Hello CarrieO,

    In addition to the requirement above, the contractor must have a specific business checking account. Not only does this provide an additional level of verification, it provides the contractor with a means to be paid more efficiently via direct deposit.
