A Contractor's License: Who Needs One and Why
When completing work for a contractor, one of the first questions to ask is whether each of the contractors involved has a valid Virginia contractor’s license. The answer to this question not only is relevant to contract negotiations but also affects construction disputes for completed work. The answer to the licensure question can be quickly obtained by entering the names of the contractors in the search box on the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation’s (“DPOR”) website (www.dpor.virginia.gov).1 This article examines the basic statutory requirements for licensure and the consequences of failing to comply with such requirements.
