The laws in New Jersey have been expanded over the years to protect consumers from various types of fraud and unconscionable business practices. The New Jersey Consumer Fraud statute provides for various protections for consumers and provides the mechanism to obtain redress, and treble damages, for certain types of business actions that are considered improper and fraudulent.
In the area of home construction and remodeling, there is the added protection provided by rules created by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs that itemizes “Unlawful Practices” that apply to home improvement contracts.
Our attorneys are well versed with these statutes and rules and can review each particular case with you. Thus, if you have been damaged by the actions of others that rise to a consumer fraud or have been damaged by the improper actions of a home improvement contractor, we can help and advise you as to your remedies.
