Get Ready for New Paperwork in Philadelphia!

Posted December 27, 2013

Philadelphia contractors will need to take some extra steps on their projects starting 1 January, thanks to a new rule taking effect from the Department of Licenses and Inspections. Before receiving permits for construction and demolition work, contractors will need to provide proof of insurance and a tax clearance form.

Homeowners preparing for major projects should keep this rule in mind when discussing plans and permits with their remodeling companies, to ensure that ample time is allowed for securing these documents before moving forward with permit applications.
