Source: California Business Portal
A domestic repair person (often referred to as a handyman) is someone who performs minor building repairs and odd jobs. The California Contractors State License Board has specific limitations about how much work can be done for compensation without a valid contractor’s license. Below are more details about these limitations, as well as a list of local, state, and federal requirements that may apply to these business types.
AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVEL:
Contractor License – The California Department of Consumer Affairs Contractors State License Board (CSLB) administers a variety of licenses for contractors, from general contractors to specialty contractors. There is no specific “handyman license.” However, the CSLB limits unlicensed work to less than $500, including both materials and labor. Any work valued at $500 or greater requires a valid contractor license. For a complete list of license types and information on how to apply, see the links below.
