Up-To-Date Contractor Information Vital to License Processing

Old addresses, phone numbers delay important contractor information

SACRAMENTO -The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) urges all licensees to provide new contact information as quickly as possible when a personal or business address or telephone number is changed. A majority of the information sent to licensees is time-sensitive, including license renewals and case-specific instructions. Outdated contact information can delay or inhibit CSLB's ability to send licensees this important information as well as changes in state contracting law or laws that affect business operations.

By law, contractors are required to notify CSLB, in writing, within 90 days of any change to a business address. Failure to notify CSLB of an address change within the 90-day period is grounds for disciplinary action (Business and Professions Code Section 7083). There is no fee to update this information.

"Our goal is to provide licensees with current information as efficiently as possible, and without delay," said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. "It's important to remember that CSLB is not informed when you submit a mail forwarding request to the U.S. Postal Service, so it's the responsibility of the licensee to contact CSLB with their new information."

Contractors are encouraged to make sure contact and business information is up-to-date. That can be done quickly here on the CSLB website.
