Taking my first step into doing some investment properties in NC and picked up a place for 9000 cash. Needs a ton of work but has a great potential to make a decent return. Does anyone know if I need to hire a GC to pull my permits? I keep reading different things and if I pull the permits myself as the homeowner, I need to live in the place for 12 months. But the law is very vague about renovations by investment companies and if they need to hold a contractors license. I plan to do a lot of the work myself minus the major stuff like electrical, plumbing etc. Just wondering of anyone has any insight on this in NC? Thanks in advance!
