All CSLB fees associated with obtaining a new license are paid by the new contractor. If you have not completed your livescan background check with CSLB in the past, a new livescan is needed and we will reimburse you for the cost.
We maintain a large RMO pool for potential contractors to locate. Once you sign up, your name will be added on a live RMO map for immediate connections in your area. We do our best to introduce you to the contractors within a 50 mile radius to make communication and visits easier.
We conduct a conference call to introduce you to each new contractor. We highly recommend you schedule a first meeting as well. You will approve any individual prior to submitting a license application.
The Contractors State License Board completes background checks for every person who will be on the license in order to verify their record. Also, we conduct a background check on each new contractor and accept only individuals whose personal record will clear the state background checks.
Your responsibilities are supervision to ensure the company complies with State regulations. The new contractor understands and will follow these rules to keep the license in good standing. When introducing you to a new contractor, we review a detailed supervision/mentorship plan with you and the new contractor in order to clarify the necessary communication and practices to follow. This plan was reviewed and approved by CSLB and following the plan will be a key to maintaining an active license.
- Each new corporation receives a NEW license number, separate and different from your personal one.
- You are automatically protected as an officer under the corporations’ commercial liability insurance (we suggest you request a copy of the insurance certificate for your record!)
- We continue to support you and your relationship with your contractor(s) and if there is ever communication issue we will assist with re-establishing the relationship.
- You can disassociate at any time! In extreme cases, if there is an issue that the contractor is not able to fix, you may remove yourself from the license.
- CSLB completes background checks through FBI and DOJ – Only those whose fingerprints clear the check will be able to be listed on a license.
- We certify our new contractors by providing them with an educational booklet with guidelines to keep their license in good standing and a follow up questionnaire with details that from our lengthy experience are pertinent to maintain a construction business.

In California you may qualify up to 3 companies at one time.
After you reach the maximum 3 contractors allowed per year and disassociate yourself from one, CSLB requires a 12 months waiting period to be introduced to a new contractor.
Your agreement remains active for as long as you are interested in qualifying your contractors. You may terminate your relationship with a contractor at any time by sending a notice of disassociation to CSLB. Keep in mind – You may continue working with a contractor we refer you only if they maintain their active agreement with RMO Agency.
No bond or insurance is required for you. The Contractor will obtain a Contractor’s Bond and necessary insurances for the company that will be performing construction work. We suggest you request copy of the bond and insurances for your record.
The corporation will be required to issue you 20% of the total issued shares. In this manner, the state allows you to serve as a license qualifier for multiple companies and also eliminates the need for a Qualifier’s bond. You will, however, be required to sign a waiver releasing these shares back to the corporation, upon the termination of your contract.
