We see general contractor fraud and general contractor breach of contracts over and over. General contractor fraud can occur in many context, including lying to obtain a contract, lying about their experience, and lying about their insurance.
We are often asked to review contractor agreements, as part of major or minor home remodels.
It is equally important to review the actual Contractor. As a starting point, we suggest that you ask to see examples of prior work, and to talk with prior customers. We also recommend checking the Contractor’s public record at the Department of Consumer Affairs, Contractor State License Board.
This website provides the contractor’s (1) business information; (2) license status; (3) Classifications; (4) Bonding information and (5) workers’ compensation. You can also get general information on hiring a contractor.
While you may not be able to eliminate all risk, by carefully taking a few simple, quick steps, you can reduce the likelihood of a project delay, shoddy workmanship and financial headaches.
