Alert for California Consumers

February 6, 2013

Contractors License Board Alert

The Contractors State License Board (CLSB) is alerting California consumers who are considering hiring a painter, landscaper, or any other type of construction contractor that it is illegal to ask for or accept a down payment of more than 10% of the total home improvement contract price or $1,000, whichever is less. A person should never pay for work before it is completed, or pay for materials before they are delivered to the property. Make sure the written contract contains a progress payment schedule that outlines project phases, with all costs and estimated completion dates.
For more information on how to protect yourself, the Contractors State License Board  is a good resource to refer to or to keep in your files.
