Brownbag Lunch Presentation

Understanding The Home Improvement Contractor Statute and

Its Impact on Claims Against Contractors

The Home Improvement Contractor Statute, Massachusetts G. L. c. 142A, applies to contracts for the performance of residential renovation services in excess of $1000.00. The failure to follow 142A’s strict statutory requirements can constitute a violation of the Consumer Protection Act. What trades are subject to 142A’s requirements? Are all 142A violations per se 93A violations? How do you defend against claims that your contractor client failed to comply with 142A?

We will review the basics of the HIC Statute, its interplay with c. 93A, and provide an overview of the law impacting contractors and homeowners. 

CLE CREDITS: This event may be eligible for CLE Credits that help satisfy the mandatory CLE requirements of certain states. 

At the conclusion of the program, registered attendees should provide an email address and the state(s) for CLE Credit to MassDLA. MassDLA will email your certificate of attendance to you.
