  • A Renewal notice will be emailed or mailed to the address on record approximately 60 days prior to the expiration, 15 days prior to expiration and upon expiration of the license.
  • For Residential, Mold Remediation and Home Improvement: you must provide proof of general liability and workers’ compensation insurance coverage upon renewal of the license.
    • Insurance certificate(s) should be emailed directly from the insurance agent to insurance@lacontractor.org.
    • Note: Failure to submit these documents can delay the renewal of the license.
