Contractor Registration

Chapter 279 of the Township Code regulates the registration of contractors.  Unless registered with the N.J. Department of Community Affairs, no person, partnership, corporation or other entity shall engage in business as a building contractor within the Township of Nutley until such person shall obtain a Certificate of Registration from the Construction Code Official.  Building permits shall be issued only to persons holding a valid Certificate of Registration or to an owner or occupant of the premises upon which the work is to be done provided the owner or occupant shall sign a statement that said owner or occupant will actually do the work himself or herself.
