Owners / HomesteadersOwners / homesteaders may apply for a refrigeration permit for a single-family dwelling if you meet all of the following conditions:
- You own the property
- You legally homestead the property
- You perform the refrigeration work yourself
Owners / homesteaders of duplexes must be living in the half / side of the duplex where the refrigeration work will be performed.
If you are the owner of a single-family dwelling or duplex and do not homestead the portion you are working in, you can not apply for a refrigeration permit. (A homesteader occupies the dwelling unit and is registered as the homesteader in Ramsey County. To file for homestead, contact Ramsey County Homestead at (651) 266-2100.)
Refrigeration permits for all properties other than owners / homesteaders' property must be obtained by a City of Saint Paul licensed refrigeration contractor. If a contractor has been hired, that licensed refrigeration contractor is responsible for obtaining the permit and complying with code requirements.
