  12. Owner's Affidavit

    Complete this section only if you are an OWNER doing your own work, and are not subject to licensure as a contractor or subcontractor. If you are an owner and intend to do the work or subcontract the work, an Owner Affidavit is required certifying that you are the owner of this tract or parcel of land, that you have applied for this permit, and are not subject to licensing as a contractor or subcontractor. Signing the Owner Affidavit, and in turn obtaining the permit in your name, designates you, as the owner, responsible for the quality of the work and compliance with applicable state and local codes. This “Owner Affidavit” must be completed, with the signature of a person who witnessed your signature to this document, acknowledging your compliance with Section 54.1-1111 of the Code of Virginia.
