California Contractor’s License Bond Amendment

CaliforniaThe SB 1432, which became effective on January 1, 2009, amended California’s law for claims toward home improvement contractors. The new law states that a homeowner may make a claim against the contractor’s bond only if the damages happened when the homeowner did not intend on selling the home. The law also makes a change to the time limit of making the claim, based on the contractor’s licensing period.
