Despite the fact that Pennsylvania’s Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act (HICPA) has been in effect for over a decade, some home improvement contractors are still reluctant to fully address HICPA’s contractual rules due to their fear that homeowners will be overwhelmed by the perceived complexity of the contracts required by HICPA. By doing so, however, contractors expose themselves to potential liability and/or enforcement problems arising from home improvement contracts that do not comply with HICPA.
The lawyers in our Business & Finance Department work with home improvement contractors to develop practical solutions to help them satisfy HICPA’s contractual requirements without “scaring off” potential customers. If you are interested in learning more about these services, please contact Paul T. Rushton, the Chair of our Business & Finance Department.
