If you are doing trade work in conjunction with an existing new construction project, such as a new house, inground pool, or other project type for which a general contractor has already purchased a master permit, then all we would need from any trade contractor who is doing work under that master permit would be a trade affidavit.  Trade Affidavits are not for use as permit application for stand alone work such as that described in the bulleted list above.
