House Flip using owner/builder for permits CA

3 Replies


I purchased a property to flip and have to pulled permits for general rehab electrical, stucco, framing, plumbing and I am adding on another bedroom.

In order to get the project moving I used owner / builder to pull permits.  In California state code say NO sales for 1 year.  I will be selling in 90 days.  

Has anyone had experience in this area? I plan on moving the permit to a contractor.

Thank you,


@Loren Becker I know this is an older thread, but I was hoping you might share your experience pulling owner/builder permits.  I live in the county and was wondering how difficult the permit process is.

Thank you in advance!
