Nevada Licensed Contractor In Landscaping
Not everyone is equipped to be a licensed landscaping contractor in Las Vegas. It takes many steps before a company can even be qualified enough to apply for a license. The high standards of the Nevada State Contractors Board (NSCB) ensure that only experienced landscaping companies will receive a license.
The Nevada Licensing Board Thoroughly Evaluates Applicants
The mission of the Nevada State Contractors Board is to ensure quality construction to protect the public's health and safety. The qualification component provides the public with an assessment of an applicant's landscaping competence at the time of licensing. They do this by thoroughly evaluating applicants who must meet certain requirements and submit proof for evaluation.
- Pass Trade & Business Law Exams
- Pass Background Check
- Bonded & Insured
A Company Must Be Financially Responsible To Receive A License
The Board determines an applicant's financial responsibility using specific legal criteria. The evaluation of financial statements is extensive and designed to protect the public and the landscaping industry from bad actors. The factors considered under financial responsibility include:
- Liquid Assets
- Payment History
- Credit Reports
- Net Worth
- Business Experience
- Past & Present Lawsuits
- Historical & Current Liens
- Adverse Judgments
- Felony Convictions
- Prior License Suspension Or Revocation
Disputes & Complaints Are Taken Seriously
The NSCB takes violations of its statutes seriously. Anyone having a complaint or dispute with a landscaper can file a report with the Nevada State Contractors Board and testify under oath. The formal complaint procedure includes the following:
- File A Report
- Provide Details & Documentation
- Disciplinary Proceeding
The Board Has The Power To Discipline
Once a disciplinary hearing concludes, if a landscape contractor is found guilty of violating the law, they will receive varying degrees of punishment depending on how severe the violation was. It is vital that The Board have the power to hold members accountable for their actions so that the value and respect for the license remains intact. The Board has the power to discipline the licensee in a few different ways.
- Revoke or suspend a license
- Issue a written reprimand
- Impose a fine of up to $10,000.00
