Home Improvement Payment Reminder
Contractors (including solar contractors) performing home improvement work or work in declared disaster areas may not accept more than 10% of the contract price or $1,000, whichever is less, as a down payment on a home improvement contract (including for a solar energy system). Except for this limited down payment, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW FOR A HOME IMPROVEMENT CONTRACTOR TO COLLECT PAYMENT FOR WORK NOT YET COMPLETED OR FOR MATERIALS NOT YET DELIVERED.
