New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Thursday announced a settlement with 211 home improvement contractors for violating the state’s Home Improvement Contracts Law. The contractors have signed an agreement to end their unlawful conduct and will pay penalties and fines, after an investigation by the Attorney General revealed widespread violations of the law, including failure to provide written contracts or honor the most basic terms of consumers’ work agreements. If consumers feel they have been victimized, they are urged to contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Helpline: 1-800-771-7755.
