The City requires the completion and approval of a sub-contractor listing as a condition of finalizing the planning and building of city developments.
A blank Sub Contractor List Form (Word) is available below. Hard copies of this form are available at the Cashier counter in City Hall.
A listing of business-license approved contractors is available at the Cashier counter in City Hall and on-line: Sub Contractor Book (PDF). Please note: while the Sub Contractor Book lists a Sub Contractor's City Business License number, it does not necessarily indicate that the Sub Contractor's City Business License is current.
Sub-Contractor List Form (Word) - to be completed by General Contractor or Owner/Builder

Sub-Contractor lists should be completely filled out prior to submitting the list to the Business License Division. The Sub-Contractor list will take up to 5 days to review upon submittal. Incomplete Sub-Contractor lists may take longer to be processed by staff.
- General Contractor/Owner-Builder shall require all Sub-Contractors to have a current Manhattan Beach Business License before permitting them to begin work for the duration of the job, per Manhattan Beach Municipal Code Section 6.01.300.
- Failure to do so may result in delay of final building inspection and the General Contractor/Owner-Builder may be held responsible for any unlicensed Sub-Contractors or Specialty Contractors.
- Final Approval for a Building Permit will not be given until a list of Contractors working on the project is completed and returned to the Business License Division by either the General Contractor or the Owner-Builder.
- All Contractors and Sub-Contractors working on the project must have a City of Manhattan Beach Business License for the dates during which they worked on the project.
