Who's in your house?
What can you do to protect your family?
When HADD opposed a new law SB 800 (Right To Repair), another
legitimate concern, along with builders with histories of shoddy work, was the safety of our families.
In California a contractor's license status via the CSLB, Contractors State Licensing Board, does
not reflect past and/or pending civil and/or criminal legal actions, but rather board related complaints. Too,
Builders, contractors and their employees now have the legal obligation to make corrections on any home during the construction
process, when it is safe for our families. These obligations to obey building laws are not being enforced
by local municipalities.
It can and has been a rather loaded situation to have a
disgruntled homeowner and likewise contractor in the same space. Woman and children shouldn't be alone with strangers
in the home, and this is what SB 800 has and will create.
It goes against all we have been taught, and assuredly, that is
who most commonly will be available for repairs. Households that demand a spouse, family
member or friend be present for repairs, may be construed as 'being difficult" and noncompliant.
In Connecticut, more than 350 convicted felons are licensed
to perform home improvement work fifteen of who are listed on the states sex offender registry. Sadly, each state cannot
attest, verify and or assure the public concerning licensed entities, and regardless licensed entities with
little background revealed are not making repairs, but employees, many undocumented workers: www.housegop.state.ct.us/pressrel/Farr/2001/press019b.htm
