Contracting without a license in New Mexico is against the law…pure and simple! If a plumbing contractor is working without a license, the division may stop the whatever project they happen to be working on and file a criminal charge of unlicensed contracting in Metropolitan or Magistrate Court.
Penalties for unlicensed contracting are set out by law. For example, if the dollar value of the contracting work is $5,000 or less, the contractor may be sentenced to the county jail for 90 days or to the payment of a fine of $300 to $500, or both. If it is over $5000 then they may be facing 6 months in jail and a fine of 10% of the job…or even both.
