Generally only the licensed general contractor is required to pull a building permit. The other subcontractors that we regulate will be on our contractor verification form (electrical, plumbing, mechanical). Note: If people contract to work on your house you should make sure they are licensed. We can do that for you.
Almost all contractors must be licensed with the State of Utah. The State of Utah requires that we confirm that the General Contractor/Builder, Electrical Contractor, Plumbing Contractor and the Mechanical Contractor are licensed. If you hire a General Contractor or Construction Company to build your home, it is their responsibility to assure West Valley City through the Contractor Verification Form that the sub-contractors are licensed.
If you are the owner and builder you are not required to have a license and you may do all the work yourself.
