Sometimes a construction project goes really well. You pay the contractor the appropriate deposit (under California law, the initial deposit cannot be more than $1,000 or 10%, whichever is less) and he goes about his business. If you have a good contractor, you end up with a beautifully renovated home. If you have a bad contractor, he can tear your life apart.
Fortunately, contracting is a heavily regulated profession in California. There are a lot of ways to obtain redress from a bad contractor. Whether it be the Contractors State Licensing Board, the contractor’s insurance, their bond, or a combination of all of the above, you need to know how to get your property repaired.
But because it is heavily regulated, the law is complicated. How and whether you can recover depends heavily on the facts.
