Hold Home Contractors Accountable For Fraud

Common Types Of Home Contractor Fraud
There are many different problems with home contractors that could warrant a claim under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, including:
- Practicing without proper registration, licensure or certifications
- Failing to obtain the correct permits or inspections
- Unnecessarily delaying work
- Collecting payment without full completion of services
- Violating terms of your contract
- Lying about the quality, availability or cost of materials
- Producing work that is incompetent by industry standards, such as installing a faulty roof or leaky plumbing
- Misrepresenting the costs, discounts or payment structure for the work
From unintentional half-truths to calculated lies, a contractor’s dishonesty can cause serious defects for your home or finances. Contractors have a legal responsibility to follow all regulations. Homeowners have a right to hold them accountable when they break the law.
