44 NJ Contractors Issued Registration Violations
Jersey Consumers should beware of Home Improvement Contractors that hold
themselves out as Licensed when they are not in fact licensed. Many list a
"License Number" on their vehicles beginning with 13VH. This is not a
license number it is and always has been a State of NJ Home Improvement Contractors Registration Number.
Electrical, Plumbing and Alarm Contractors are Licensed in the State of New Jersey, Home Improvement Contractors are not Licensed,
they are merely required to be Registered. If there is no number at all, that
is a huge RED Flag for any consumer to stay away from that contractor.
that end New Jersey has
issued violation notices to 44 home improvement contractors that the agency
found to be non-compliant and unregistered. The Division of Consumer affairs is
seeking $195,000 in civil penalties from the contractors. The investigation was
based on complaints and referrals from consumers across the state.
General Jeffrey Chiesa says the division receives more complaints about home
improvement contractors than any other category. Chiesa says four of the
contractors face sanctions for failing to perform work after
accepting customer deposits. Forty of the contractors allegedly performed or solicited home repairs without properly registering with division.
