Who can obtain a permit?
Any person applying to the Building Inspections Division for the construction, removal, or improvement of any structure shall furnish prior to the issuance of a permit, either satisfactory proof to the building official that he is duly licensed as a contractor in the Commonwealth of Virginia or file an Owner/Builder Affidavit with the permit application indicating that he is exempt from the licensing requirement.

It shall be unlawful for the building inspector or other authority to issue or allow the issuance of such permits unless the applicant has furnished his license or certificate number issued pursuant to this chapter or evidence of being exempt from the provisions of this chapter.
