In Washington an owner can do the work on his own home and it must be inspected. They cannot use a licensed electrician unless the electrician pulls the permit. If a Licensed electrian is caught "helping" they can be fined. This is all because of the strong unions. (can you say stupid)

I wired my shop I pulled the permit, wired it and had it inspected. No union, no fine and no problem.

We also have a full disclosure form here and it is several pages. I have sold a couple places where I had to fill them out. They are a pain but in reality they are not that difficult. And my memory is not what it used to be. :D :D

These laws are pure and simple a power grab by the contractors group. There's no rational reason for not allowing owner builders to do electrical or plumbing (or any rational reason for restricting them on use or sale of their own property). If the work's done properly and can pass inspection it should be fine end of story. These laws are one of the reasons for so many unpermitted properties on the Island (especially Hilo side).

That and when you pull a building permit then they can raise your taxes based on higher value. Without a building on the property the taxes are like $100 per year.

That's not exactly correct, the tax rate for vacant land is $8.55 per $1,000.00 of the assessed value, unless there is agricultural exemption granted for the vacant land.
