In 2015, the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation (House Enrolled Act 1303) establishing a pilot program under which individuals can become a “state registered” Home Builder or Home Remodeler through the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (IPLA). The program is voluntary.
Under IC 25-1-5.5, the IPLA will maintain an electronic registry of all “state registered” Home Builders and Home Remodelers, also known as Voluntary Contractor Registry, who apply electronically for registration through its website and meet the registration requirements set forth by the Indiana Builders Association.
The Voluntary Contractor Registry provides an avenue for the consumer to identify a “state registered” Home Builder or Home Remodeler. Choosing a “state registered” Home Builder or Home Remodeler gives the consumer peace of mind that they are working with a reliable, reputable professional.
