In Massachusetts, our statute legislature placed great importance in the protection of one’s home. When a homeowner hires a contractor to perform work on their home, the expect that the work will be completed timely and with good workmanship.
Massachusetts General Laws, c. 142A, known as the Home Improvement Contractors Statute, protects homeowners from the wrongful acts of contractors that they hire to work on their home. Section 2, requires a written agreement for all contracts in excess of $1,000. A well-written contract, that conforms to M.G.L. c. 142A, will dictate what work will be completed, when the work will be completed, and how the work will be paid for.
When a contractor fails to perform their contractual obligations, it is important to contact the experienced attorneys at the Chapdelaine Law Office to hold home improvement contractors accountable to their customers.
