Residential Construction Attorneys In New Jersey And New York
The Language Of A Home Improvement Contract
Additionally, a Home Improvement Contractors' contract must contain required language. For instance, in New Jersey, a home improvement contract must include, among other things, "[a] copy of the certificate of commercial general liability insurance ... and the telephone number of the insurance company issuing the certificate." Failure to include this necessary language is considered an "unlawful" practice punishable under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.
Homeowners must also be vigilant when hiring a Home Improvement Contractor. If you are hiring a Home Improvement Contractor for a scope of work that exceeds $500, there must be a contract. If you do not understand the law or the home improvement contract, it is advisable for you to seek counsel from the construction law attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephen Bialkowski, LLC, and have our lawyers protect your interests.
