The requirements of section 7159 are too extensive to discuss in detail here, so you should look at section 7159 yourself, but in a fairly large nut shell, you need home improvement contracts: I read your answer to this question about working on an apartment building and your answer to a question below about working in an HOA community. It is clear from your answers that if I had replaced a few concrete exterior steps to the front door of an apartment in a building, it would require a legal contract to improve the house, but if I had replaced the same steps up to the door of a condo, but still in the common area, it would not require a legal improvement of the house contract. Can you confirm if my understanding is correct? Can you also confirm that any work on an apartment building, regardless of the number of housing units, requires the legal contract to improve the house? Garret….

My assumption as to why the state legislature exempted housing from housing requirements is, as you say, the relative sophistication between the contracting parties for the construction or construction of custom housing, but also, I think, because the Right to Repair Act (SB 800) provides a relatively comprehensive scheme for the construction of new housing. 7028.15. a) It is a crime for any person to make an offer to a public body to make a transaction or to act as a contractor in that state, without having a licence for that, except in one of the following cases: Garrett, is the reason why it is necessary for the ERR or the official on the licence to submit an offer, offer or contract. I think the signing of an offer or a contract is the only evidence that the contractor was the one who filed it. Good morning, David. I am not familiar with the regulations you are referring to, but when it comes to work, you should use a legal contract to improve the house, even to work on an apartment building, which I know seems strange. Hey, Chuck. I am not aware of the fact that a contractor carrying out Hazmat`s work gives a written estimate as opposed to the work carried out on the basis of T-M (an estimate and the completion of work on T-M is not necessarily incompatible). However, you need certification to eliminate hazardous substances – www.cslb.ca.gov/About_Us/Library/Licensing_Classifications/HAZ_-_Hazardous_Substance_Removal_Certification.aspx sounds like a cucumber.
