Is a landlord required to hire a licensed contractor for tenant's repairs? If the landlord is licensed, may the landlord legally perform the repairs?
Let's assume the work being performed is substantial - like replacing all the electrical in the kitchen, or relocating the plumbing for the sink.
For clarification, this is in the USA - if the state matters, then let's say Florida. (Though if the state is important, then I think an answer of 'depends on the state' would be more relevant)
