Many people are unaware that contracts between the consumer and unlicensed contractors who perform work illegally are not valid contracts. In many jurisdictions this leaves the consumer with limited resources available to recoup their losses when the project is not completed satisfactorily, does not meet code requirements or if the project is simply abandoned.
In many states, aiding and abetting an illegal unlicensed Electrical Contractor is against the law with serious penalties ranging from fines to imprisonment. Protect yourself by only hiring a legally Licensed Professional Contractor. Click here to search for a Licensed Electrical Contractor.
