Do ANY contractors actually pull DC building permits?

“I’m trying to excavate part of my backyard to create a driveway… and all the contractors (DC & VA) say that I don’t need one. Only for building construction, not to take away yard.

It’s obviously not true. I’m now sending the links and printing the main form for them. They say, if there are any problems that it’s on them, not me. Also, not true.

I’m actually having trouble finding one that knows how to pull permits… and/or knows/follows the rules. It looks like I’m going to have to pull the permits, but that requires drawings and other headaches, plus 1-2 months processing.

Anyone have advice? Anyone have similar problems?”
