Before me this day personally appeared __________________________________________ (name of the property owner), who being duly sworn, deposes, and says as follows: "I hereby acknowledge that I have read and fully understand the individual provisions of this instrument."
4. I understand that I may build or improve a one-family or two-family residence or a farm outbuilding. I may also build or improve a commercial building if the costs do not exceed $75,000.00. The building or residence must be for my own use or occupancy. It may not be built or substantially improved for sale or lease. If a building or residence that I have built or substantially improved myself is sold or leased within 1 year after the construction is complete, the law will presume that I built or substantially improved it for sale or lease, which violates the exemption.
If any person violates the requirements of this subsection, the local permitting agency shall withhold final approval, revoke the permit, or pursue any action or remedy for unlicensed activity against the owner and any person performing work that requires licensure under the permit issued.
Per Florida Statute 455.228: Homeowners hiring unlicensed Contractors may be subject to a fine of up to $5,000.00!
