For Homeowners

It is unlawful for any person to perform any installation, alteration or any plumbing without first obtaining a plumbing permit.  Homeowners may take a homeowner test to do his/her own sanitary drain systems and domestic water service or distribution.

Homeowners may not perform any HVAC, radiant heat or natural gas work.  A New Mexico licensed contractor must perform this work.
