Florida State Statute 489.113(c)
The local government may also deny issuance of, or may suspend, any outstanding building permit where a contractor fails or refuses to provide proof of public liability and property damage insurance coverage as required by s.489.115(5) and workers' compensation insurance coverage as required by s.489.114.
Broward County Building Code has permitting jurisdiction for properties in Unincorporated Broward County. A verified contractor license is only valid in unincorporated Broward County or in areas where the Go SOLAR Online Permitting System is used to pull a permit. If you are planning to perform work within an incorporated area, please contact the city where you plan to pull the permit.
If you are a State Contractor who plans to perform work within areas that Broward County Building Code has jurisdiction, you must submit the Florida Contractor License Verification form with supporting documentation, Uniform Building Permit Application, and construction plans to our Building Permitting office.
To complete the verification, please submit a copy of each of the following with your verification form:
A copy of your Florida Contractor License
A copy of your certificate of general liability insurance
A copy of your certificate of workers' compensation insurance or a waiver stating exemption
A copy of your Florida Driver License
