Property Owners - Be Aware!
Are you doing your own work or has your contractor asked you to obtain a building permit?
If a contractor has asked you to get the permit listing you, the homeowner, as the contractor, you should be aware of the following:

  • If you have a contractor, they may be attempting to absolve themselves from liability and responsibility for the quality and workmanship of the work performed.
  • Your contractor might not be licensed with the Village of South Holland.
  • It is NOT cheaper for a homeowner to obtain a building permit.
  • The time frame for processing a permit application is the same for homeowners as it is for contractors.
  • You will be held to the same standards and same inspection schedule as a contractor.
  • The Village of South Holland will not be able to help you resolve any disputes or problems with unlicensed contractors or their work.
  • YOU will be responsible for correcting any deficiencies in the work performed.
  • It is a code violation to falsify information on permit applications

For more information on the permit process, contact the Planning & Development Office at 708-210-2915.
