Will The CSLB Pursue Legal Action On Previous Work?


Greetings:

I'm asking for a friend.

He has a low voltage home wiring company in Northern California. He is ready to get his c-7 contractors license, but was wondering if the CSLB will pursue any legal action, once he presents the work/experience, that he's done for the past 5 years in the industry, without a license?

In other words, should he feel comfortable presenting his experience to get licensed without worrying about retribution?

Any recommendations would be great!

Thanks, S

Tell him to move to Minnesota, there’s an opening for a licensed framer up there.

How about a serious reply please? There are 8000 homes that need to be built in Napa and Sonoma country. These fire victims are worried that they won't have enough contractors, so my friend is trying to step up and be legit.

Thank you

Oh, now I feel so extremely sad and sorry, because this is all about the "fire victims", and here we were just playing with ourselves.

Since this is a forum for Professional Contractors, and those working professionally in the field, only, why don't you tell "friend" about this place, and he/she can post their own damn question.

And why is your "friend" suddenly concerned about "being legit", if it's been no concern of his/hers for the past 5 years? Maybe because he/she can't bid insurance jobs with out the license?

Lot of jobs to lose out on. And money.
