Who is supposed to install the range hoods for the stove? Does the general contractor usually do this? Is a permit required? This is for a fix and flip in San Antonio, Texas

Depends on the SoW in the contract. In my experience it's usually the GC or one of their crew who does skilled punchlist items like this.

Permit requirements are highly localized, but in general installing a range hood by itself does not require a permit. However, some of the other tasks related to it (e.g. running new electrical to the hood location) may require a permit.

Does it need to be vented? If so, get a HVAC contractor to do the venting and a handyman/appliance installer that has experience to do the install.
