Am I Obligated To Pay An Unlicensed Contractor?

In California, contractors are required to have a license for work exceeding $500. If an unlicensed contractor performed the renovation or project and the costs were more than $500, homeowners are not obligated to pay them for the work. Likewise, you are not obligated to pay an unlicensed contractor if the work was defective and the cost exceeded the threshold amount.

When Can I Sue?
