My father wants to retire and mentioned to me he would like to grandfather his license to me. All I could find is a "family weaver" Contractors License Law section 7065.1(b)
The experience would have to been obtain under the fathers license. If the father didn't have workers comp, then he wouldn't be able to show his experience under that license. Therefore, he would not qualify for the family waiver.Hi,
I read over this post. If you don't mind I have an additional question. My husband would like to possibly take over his fathers c8 license. Is this only possible if he has been working directly for his father company? Or if he has been working for another company for a long period of time he has 15 years in experience. Is there anything he can do, we are not very clear on grandfathering or what other option he has. Is he just going to have to apply for his own license completely?
This is for a waiver of the exams, but if you could show 4 yrs of qualifying experience you could take over the business by taking the exams.(b) The qualifying individual is an immediate member of the family of a licensee whose individual license was active and in good standing of a licensee whose individual license was active and in good standing for five of the seven years immediately preceding the application for licensure, and the qualifying individual is able to show all of the following:
(1) The qualifying individual has been actively engaged in the licensee’s business for five of the seven years immediately preceding the application for licensure.
(2) The license is required to continue the existing family business in the event of the absence or death of the licensee.
