I started remodeling of a condo 6 month ago. i'm now suing my general contractor (to small claims court) for many reasons. Bad work, 12 working late, with penalties per week, etc). In short, the guy should not continue to work here, the guy's a crook.

So after i fired him, I hired new guys to correct the drywall work and do the painting. Only jobs that not require a general contractor nor an inspection that was not already passed.

But I still have some plumbing job and electrical to do (minor stuffs) in order to pass the inspections, and if everything is ok, the final inspection.

So because i need someone to play the role of general contractor, just officialy since i already have my plumber and electrical guy ready, I went to city hall of Miami beach to tell them that i fired my general contractor and that i want to be my own general contractor, and someone there told me that i can't be my own GC since this is a condo. If that was a house, it'll be ok, but since it's a condo, it's not possible.

Can someone tell me if this is really the case ?
I ask because after the two years i spent here (i come from europe, sorry for my english btw), i know that the informations i'm given are frequently not the correct ones.

Thank you for your help !

Since any malfunctioned construction work in your condo may effect other residences in the long run , there is a code requirement for condominium construction work to be handled by a licensed and insured general contractor. Hope this helps.
