Unlicensed Contractors & Contractor Complaints
Licensing > Unlicensed Contractors & Contractor Complaints

A person that performs contracting without being licensed as a contractor can be charged with a 1st degree misdemeanor for the 1st offense and a 3rd degree felony for any offense after being found guilty of unlicensed contracting.

Owners wishing to file a complaint about a contractor may do so only after certain steps have already taken place which are described below.  Note that complaints about poor workmanship are typically a civil issue.  Community Development is unable to regulate these types of issues unless they rise to the level of violations of the building code.

Persons wishing to report unlicensed activity or contracting by email, please send it to ContractorLicensing@CharlotteCountyFL.gov.
