Building your dream home is exciting, but finding a qualified, professional contractor who can get the job done in a timely manner can be difficult. Unfortunately, many people find themselves in situations where their projects aren’t completed on time, on budget, or at all. Even smaller improvements or upgrades can be costly and take months, and so you want to make sure you’re protected.
Fortunately, the law has numerous protections for homeowners who have fallen prey to shady contractors. Not only can homeowners file lawsuits to recoup their expenses, but contractors can be criminally prosecuted. Homeowners should know that just because they signed a contract, doesn’t mean they have no recourse. Having an experienced attorney who understands your options is important when dealing with disreputable contractors.
