Homeowner permits:

Homeowners doing work on their personal private residence are not considered contractors and are not required to obtain a contractor license however, they are required to complete a homeowner disclaimer.

By obtaining a homeowner permit, the homeowner is taking on any and all risk and liability (present and future) associated with the work being completed. It may be beneficial to hire a licensed contractor if the scope of work is outside the knowledge and experience of the homeowner. 

Business license

In addition to a Contractor's License, contactors performing work in the Town of Erie are required to obtain a Business License. Please see information here.
