Homeowners who cannot do home repairs themselves often rely on home improvement contractors to do the work. While most contracted home repairs are completed professionally and satisfactorily, some homeowners receive inadequate, unprofessional or fraudulent home repair work.

Home improvement contractors in Westchester County are required to be licensed and to abide by county laws which provide certain protections for consumers. Residents are encouraged to become familiar with these laws.

Wage underpayment and theft
Home improvement contractors are required by law to declare on their licensing application any nonpayment or underpayment of wage actions against them. If contractors fail to abide by this law and you believe you have been a victim of wage theft, file a Wage Underpayment and Theft Worker complaint with our office.
