When multiple contractors are involved in a single renovation, must every contractor provide pre-renovation education? Can a certified firm assign its responsibility to a property management company?

All firms performing, offering or claiming to perform renovations are responsible for ensuring compliance with the pre-renovation education requirements of the RRP Rule. However, it is unnecessary for the same notifications and information to be given out repeatedly during a single renovation. Accordingly, a firm may discharge the task by reaching agreement on who will provide the required pre-renovation education, including an agreement to assign the task to a property management company. However, even with such an agreement in place, each firm remains responsible for ensuring that the pre-renovation education requirements are met. 

Note: Firms may reach a similar agreement on who will prepare, retain and make available the necessary records. See FQ 23002-18287.
