Under existing law, state and local home building and home improving requirements do not apply to certain individuals, including the owner of a property who is acting as his or her own contractor and providing all material supervision himself or herself when building or improving a single-family or two-family residency on the property, so long as the home is not built to be offered for sale
This bill would further provide for the exemptions from the state and local building requirements of individuals building or improving upon their own home when not offered for sale
This bill would also mandate compliance with certain requirements by a person who builds or improves his or her home under the owner-builder exemption before the person may enter into a contract for the sale of the home to a potential purchaser
Relating to home building; to provide further exemptions for a person who builds or improves his or her own home; to provide certain requirements for the sale of a home built or improved pursuant to the exemption.
