Do you need a building permit for your project in Myrtle Beach?
The answer, generally, is “yes,” but exceptions exist. Contact the Construction Services Department to find out if you need a permit. Any contractors who work inside the city are required to have a City of Myrtle Beach business license. And, they are required to be licensed by SC LLR for their respective trades.
Why a permit and a license? For the safety of all involved. The city wants to make sure the work is done correctly and according to code. Licenses are required to protect the public from unscrupulous contractors.
