File a Complaint against a Contractor in NJ

File a complaint against a contractor in NJ – Many of my clients ask for my assistance when they want to file a formal complaint against a contractor with the State of New Jersey in addition to filing a lawsuit against them. The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs requires home improvement contractors  to register with the State pursuant to the New Jersey Contractor’s Registration Act, N.J.S.A. 56:8‐136 et seq., and provides a formal process where homeowners or their attorneys can file a complaint against a NJ home improvement contractor. The Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs has the power to suspend or revoke a NJ home improvement contractor’s registration, or assess a penalty, upon proof that the the contractor:

  1. Has obtained a registration through fraud, deception or misrepresentation;
  2. Has engaged in the use or employment of dishonesty, fraud, deception, misrepresentation, false promise or false pretense;
  3. Has engaged in gross negligence, gross malpractice or gross incompetence;
  4. Has engaged in repeated acts of negligence, malpractice or incompetence;
  5. Has engaged in professional or occupational misconduct as may be determined by the director;
