When you hire a contractor to repair or remodel your home, the contractor is required by Illinois law to provide you with a consumer rights brochure. The purpose of the brochure is both to inform you of your rights as a homeowner and provide you with tips to avoid being scammed.
You have three days to cancel after signing a contract for home repair or remodeling. The contractor cannot deprive you of this right by beginning work within this three day period.If you think you have been defrauded by a contractor, you should speak to an attorney in addition to reporting the fraud to the attorney general. The toll free number for the attorney general is (800)368-5438.
We offer free, paid & online consultation in nearly every area of law throughout Illinois and Iowa. We have a range of options to assist you with your legal needs.
