California has laws regarding the small projects and repairs that handymen do.  These jobs are usually too small for licensed contractors to want to deal with, so there’s the minor work exception I describe at the bottom.   I’ll tell you a little more about my company and then dive into the code.

Neighborhood Pro Handyman Services provides home repair and maintenance services in Rancho Murieta and surrounding areas.

I carry business licenses for the areas I serve and keep general liability insurance of $1,000,000 for your peace of mind.

I am not a Licensed Contractor, but operate under the minor work exception in accordance with the California Business and Professions Code Sections below:

(7027.2, & 7048)   These sections in the Contractors’ State License Law allow handymen like me to do repairs and projects on your home if they are casual, minor, or inconsequential nature and the aggregate contract price for labor, materials, and all other items, is less than five hundred dollars $500.  Large planned projects can not be broken up into smaller ones just to meet the $500 limit.

(7045 & 7046)   These sections explain that the Contractors’ State License Law does not apply to work on personal property or the sale or installation of any finished products that do not become a fixed part of the structure of your home and yard.

If you’d like to know, please call me, and I’ll be glad to answer any questions.
