New Handyman With A Question


Hello,
I am trying to start up a handyman business in Alabama. I was wondering what the laws were regarding minor electrical and plumbing here in AL. I have looked at the states general contractors website and I couldn't find the laws on minor electrical and plumbing. Any help would be really appreciated.

Around here, those laws based on which county I'm in. (I live on the county line so frequently work in two different counties). Within those counties, there are 7 different cities that I usually work in.



They all have different limitations as to what I am allowed to do as a general contractor.



I went to the building department of every one and took all of the flyers available, as well as quizzed the HDIC at every office.

On a state level, what requires a license for things like plumbing and electrical are part of the state laws on professional licensing. Your local AHJs can be stricter, so start there.
