WANTED! Unlicensed Contractors
Unlicensed Contractors are hurting us all!
They are wanted for:
- Defrauding Homeowners and Consumers
- "Underground" Cash Payments
- Tax Evasion and Employment Violations
- Abandonment of Work and Poor Workmanship
- Violation of Building Codes and Permit Rules
The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) and concerned construction industry organizations are working together to catch unlicensed, illegal contractors and to put an end to the damage they are inflicting on homeowners, the industry, and the state and local economies.
YOU CAN HELP IN THIS IMPORTANT EFFORT!
If you are aware of an unlicensed contractor working in your area, call the nearest
CSLB office listed.
CSLB has developed specially trained teams - Underground Economy Enforcement Units (UEEU's) - to find and prosecute unlicensed contractors throughout the state.
The Best 'Lead': If you know when an unlicensed contractor will be working at a certain project or in a specific area in advance, notifying the UEEU staff will allow them to catch the unlicensed contractor in the act.
PLEASE REPORT THESE QUICKLY! to 916-255-2924.

Note: Due to limited resources,
CSLB is not currently able to investigate every submitted report of unlicensed contracting activity (i.e. illegal advertising, reports of unlicensed contractors 'in the area' but on helpful specifics are available, etc.) This CAN be helpful information for planning 'stings' and 'sweeps', however, and may be retained in the UEEU files for later reference and action.
