Contractor Registry

Starting next month, Pennsylvania contractors who make more than $5000 per year need to register with the Attorney General's office. Attorney General Spokesperson Nils Fredrickson says much of the law has the consumer in mind. By taking down a contractor's name, address and other personal information, these people are much easier to track down in case there may be a dispute. Fredrickson says the the Attorney General web site will provide a place where contractors can be searched by registration number or zip code beginning next month, and recommends that any consumers that have contractors should be sure they are registered. This registry will also give con-artists who claim to be contractors less room to hide or disappear when work is payed for but not completed.
