Not allowed to pull my own permits.

11 years ago

I am doing a complete remodel of my house and doing all the work myself. So I went to get permits to replace all the electrical and plumbing, they said I could do the work myself but only a licensed contractor can pull the permits. Their advise was for me to fill out the permits then find a contractor to come down to the court house to sing it. If I understand correctly the contractor would then be liable for the work? I don't feel good about asking someone to do that. Any suggestions would be great thanks.
