Do NOT Pay for Work Before It Is Complete

The contractors state license board (CSLB) 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 one thousand dollars, which ever 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.
