I'm under LOI for a commercial landscaping business in Virginia that does some construction work. The owner is the only one who holds the Class A General Contractor license. The requirement to obtain the certification in Virginia is 5 years experience. The owner is willing to hold the license through the sale, but 5 years would be too long to wait before I could get it. Has anyone dealt with something similar and figured out a creative solution besides hiring someone else with the cert?
