Your state law will determine how much liability the association is required to carry, depending on whether you are an employee or a contractor.
Yes...because you must show proof of insurance. also you must pay the state of Nevada for "the right to do business" or in less derogatory terms...licensing fees. The law of… this state requires that a person or entity that enters into a contract to perform construction work be properly licensed by the Nevada State Contractors Board for the category of work that the person or entity intends to perform. Laws regarding licensed contractors are designed to protect the public. If you contract with someone who is not licensed to perform construction work, remedies against that person or entity may be limited to a suit in civil court. You may be liable for damages arising out of any injuries to an unlicensed contractor or that contractor's employees, as well as withholding taxes, contributions pursuant to the Federal Insurance Contributions Act and contributions for industrial insurance, and unemployment. Finally, you should be aware that construction performed on your property must comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, building codes and zoning regulations. A contractor is required to include his license number on all advertising, vehicles, bids, and contracts. You may contact the Nevada State Contractors Board to find out if a contractor has a valid license and the status of that license. The Board has complete information on the status of all licensed contractors in the State of Nevada. This information is available through the "voice response system."
No license is required to be a handyman in the state of Nevada. However, if you want to build anything that will cost over $1,000 or that requires a building permit, you m…ust get one. That can be done by applying for a contractor license at the Nevada State Contractors Board.
Depends on your state. Here in CT you would be a Home improvement contractor and Would get it from the Dept Consumer protection. No test, just throw money at the state. … Florida is not so easy: Must be a licensed contractor. Department of Business & Professional Regulation Construction Industry Licensing Board Attention: Examination 1940 North Monroe Street Tallahassee, FL 32399-1039 (850) 487-1395 Fax: (850) 921-4216
In Nevada, all individuals or businesses that construct or alter any building or structure must have a State contractor's license. There are some exceptions to the rule. To ob…tain the license, you must have experience and skills and complete an application together with a fee of $600. You can access the link to Nevada's Licensing Office by using the free website "Nevada Contractor Licenses Directory" where you can also access a "Contractor License Search."
Who is required to pay for damages to personal property caused by a roofing co hired by your Condo Home Owners Association?
Take your evidence and your claim to the board, and work with them to determine which insurance company pays for the damage, yours or the master policy that covers the associa…tion. Depending on the value of the damages, it could be covered by an amount which is less than the deductible. Update: Management company , which hired roofing contractors, tried to make it an issue between the roofing company and us, the condo owners who were damaged. They just didn't want to "get involved." Too bad: The management co/HOA hired the contractors and thus THEY were responsible for seeing that our damages were paid. Refusing to back down we threatened to sue both the management co and the HOA as they were PRIMARY contactees. I think they realized that we were in the righ tand put pressure on the roofing company. We finally agreed to settle for substantially less than the damages just to putthe mater to rest. Perhaps we mistakenly expect the management companies and the Boards of Directors to represent US, the homeowners. But it seems ours, at least, will shirk responsibility in every way possible. Just who's side are they on? Apparently not the homeowner's!
The answer to your question is based on 2 pieces of information. First, the particular state in which you plan on offering your handyman services, as each state has its own r…equirements for licensing and for what trades need licenses. Second, the specific service (trade) you are providing. In most cases "a handyman" provides services that would not usually fall into a field or trade that requires licensing. That being said, beware that if the job strays into electrical, plumbing or anything structual you are more than likely "outside your scope." Always best to check with your home state when in doubt. Good Luck.
I don't know of any states that require license for handyman services. Handyman services should be minimal repairs and if your area requires a permit for the work you are pref…orming than you are not a "handyman" but a contractor. It would be best to contact your local building department and explain what services you are performing and see if they require a permit. In Ohio we do not have state license for general contractor or remodeling it is by city or county depending on where the work is located. This often leads to multiple licenses to perform work around large cities with smaller municipalities.
It is important when an association hires a management company, that the company have earned a proven track record of managing condominiums. Condominium-savvy management compa…nies are usually affiliated with national organizations, such as CAI (Community Association Institute). As well, they understand how to read and employ the responsibilities called for in the governing documents, and they understand state condominium law. Check the local BBB for a company's standing. Interview past and present clients. The first step, however, is to decide what skills are required to manage the property, what skills the board possesses and what skills are lacking. Then the association can hire a management company that is good fit with that board. Insist on a managing agent who fits with the board's style of work and level of involvement. Pros: The management company Handles the condominium's finances, including paying bills and collecting past-due assessments from ownersMaintains lists of tenants and contact details for all residentsReports financial standings monthlyOperates as a buffer between the board and board-members' neighborsHelps the board execute its duties as outlined in the governing documentsHelps the board abide by state laws that govern condominiumsAdvises the board in special situations, such as disaster repairs, vendor relations, crisis situations and so forth Cons: The management company can Abuse its responsibilities by conducting itself in non-professional waysManage the property as though it were a rental property, ignoring governing documents and state lawsPay bills lateDemonstrate poor communication skills and alienate association membersRefuse to abide by the decisions of the boardAnd so forth Before you sign a contract with a management company: Read it through to understand what services are offered and which services are covered in your base rate and which are charged for in addition, andObtain an estimate from the managing agent as to the administrative fees and office expenses anticipated monthly to support your particular propertyVerify that the contract terms offered and the terms set out in your governing documents match or are not in conflictUnderstand the cancellation process and the renewal process

It depends. If you store your boat on condominium property, the association can demand protection against damage to its assets that can be caused by the boat. These might in…clude the wind blowing a boat over and the mast crashing on the roof; gas or other liquids leaking out of the boat or its engines, or the boat and trailer being blown into the landscaping. If your association owns a lake or a pond for the exclusive use of its residents, then the association can demand that you insure your own liability, loss of life and other coverage. If, however, you simply own a boat, and don't store it on the property or use it in the community pond, there's not much reason for the association to demand insurance coverage of your boat.
you need to go to the state licensing office on Musser street in down town Carson. There you will need to pay a fee for the license and should receive it with in a business we…ek or so.
If the association is a corporation -- and in most states, this is true: associations are usually non-profit corporations, the state may require that the corporation have a bo…ard of directors. Without a board, it's unclear how an association could operate the business composed of the multi-millions of dollars represented in the collective investment in real estate.

A professional handyman in Maryland should hold a General Contractors license, which is issued by the Maryland Home Improvement Commission. In order to bid on a job or enter i…nto a contract with a homeowner, one must have a license. If, however, you wish to pay someone directly to do work on your house, you may do so - but you have no legal recourse if he does not complete the work, does the work poorly, does damage to your home, steals from you, or get hurts on the job. For this and many other reasons, it is highly advisable that you only hire professionals who are "licensed, bonded, and insured."
Read your governing documents to determine what the association is required to review prior to your renting your unit. It is possible that the association has a rental… cap, in which case, your rental may or may not be allowed, depending on the current percentage of rentals in the community. The association is not in the business of approving your tenant, but can require proof from you that you have performed a background check and a financial check on a prospective tenant. The association may require proof that you asked a prospective tenant for an application, but the association is not legally allowed to require it. The association may require that you supply a copy of any rental agreement you sign with a tenant.
