1.Overview

If you are a licensed residential builder who plans to build and/or sell new homes, or carry out building envelope renovations, in the 12-month period after your licence expires, you must renew your licence.

This applies to general contractors, developers and building envelope renovators. Continuing to build or sell new homes after your licence has expired is an offence under the Homeowner Protection Act.

We will send you an email reminder approximately 60 days before your licence expiry date.

Completing the application is quick and simple on the Licensed Residential Builders Portal. Here you apply and pay the renewal fee. If you don’t have a valid email address, contact us for a paper application form.

Once we have reviewed your application, we will notify you of our decision by email or letter. If successful, you can then download and print your licence certificate.

You can also use the portal at any time to change your contact details without charge. The portal is also the place to make further updates to your licence that require a fee, such as a name change or company structure change.
