UNLICENSED CONTRACTING - IMPACT ON CONTRACT ENFORCEMENT

Florida Statute 489.128 provides that contracts entered into by an unlicensed contractor are not enforceable by the unlicensed contractor. Importantly, this statute was amended in 2009 to clarify that the term "unlicensed" means the failure to secure a state license (as opposed to a local license). Florida Statute 489.532(1)(a) further clarifies that if a state license is not required for a scope of work to be performed under a contract, the individual performing the work is not considered unlicensed.
