Building & Remodeling

Consumer Law in Connecticut- Lesson 101

 

When you first got your driver’s license, you had to take a test to show your proficiency. Unfortunately, this is not so with builders and remodelers. Home Improvement Contractors (Remodelers) and New Home Contractors do need to have a registration from the State to work legally for consumers, but all they need do is fill out a form and mail in a check. No test or even a letter of competency is needed. The good news is that part of each of those checks goes into a Guarantee Fund for ripped off consumers. In order to qualify, you must have hired a contractor that was registered at the contact signing and have a court judgment that is uncollectable. The funds are limited but it is still some assurance that some lost money may be reimbursed. You can check State licenses online at https://www.elicense.ct.gov
