Once you obtain your S.C. Residential Builders license/registration, please be aware that cities and/or counties in which you plan to work may require additional licensing and/or permitting.
Each city/county has its own rules, regulations, and fees.
The Residential Builders Commission offers the following tips to assist you:
Determine the city/county you will be operating in within South Carolina.
If the location you will be operating is within a city, click on this link, www.masc.sc/municipalities/directory/Pages/default.aspx to search the city and obtain a phone number. When you call, ask to speak with the Business License or Building Permit department
If the location is not in a city limit, but rather in a county, click on this link, www.sccounties.org/sc-counties to search the county and obtain a phone number. When you call, ask to speak with the Business License or Building Permit department.
If you are not sure if a location is in the city or county, call the local city/county to confirm which permit and/or license you may need.
