“The Board has the power to revoke, suspend, or refuse to renew the license of any licensee who shall be found guilty of any one or more of the following acts or omissions:
1. Fraud or deceit in obtaining a license.
2. Aiding, abetting or knowingly combining or conspiring with an unlicensed person with the intent to evade the provisions of this chapter.
3. Willful or deliberate violation of this code and laws of the County or State of Maryland.
4. Abandonment or willful failure to perform, without justification any contract for doing work for which a building contractor must be licensed to perform for construction of a building or structure that is designed to be used as a residence or dwelling place.,
5. Failure in any material respect to comply with the provisions of this chapter and other laws and to correct promptly upon notice any failure to comply with this code or laws of the County and state.
6. Upon finding by the Board that the licensee lacks good moral character or is not financially responsible.”

“In matters dealing with complaints of defects in construction which violate provisions of this chapter and rules and regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, the Building Official will investigate such complaints and, if the same are found to be justified in the opinion of the Building Official, shall give the licensee one month to correct such defects or until the weather, season, or availability of parts permits correction. Failure to correct such defects shall be reported to the Board. In such cases, in addition to the powers set forth above, and where the Board finds that a licensee has substantially completed work associated with an existing building permit issued by the County and where suspension of remaining construction would result in an unusual hardship to the purchaser, the Board may allow construction to continue under said permit until completion.”

“Before revoking, suspending or refusing to renew any license, the Board shall afford the licensee an opportunity for hearing to show cause why his/her license should not be revoked, suspended or the renewal thereof refused. The Board shall give such licensee notice in writing at least 10 days prior to such hearing by personal service or by certified mail to the last address on file with the Board, and such notice shall state the complaint and violation. Any person aggrieved by any action of the Board may appeal to the Circuit Court of Calvert County by filing a notice of such appeal with the Clerk of the Court as set forth above.”
