Question by JOE: Is it legal to sell a home improvement contract if im uninsured, and dont have a Contractors licence.?
I plan to sub-contract the work to a company that is insured, and has all the propper documentation. I was curious if it is legal to do this in my state (MA)
thank you

No. Contractors, even those who subcontract every part of a job, have to be licensed and bonded. If you will be getting paid you will also need a business license.

  1. You should have independent contractor’s agreement signed and then begin work. If you not qualified, i.e no contractor’s license then you can’t get the contract initially. You would have to put other company in front of you who has license, and then make you as sub-contractor (the other way) specifying that you will take % of profit out of the project. That way both will be covered.
