(Whitewater Public Library submission)- The Irvin L. Young Memorial Library presents “Home Improvement Contracts under Wisconsin Law,” a virtual program, on Tuesday, April 20th at 6:00 p.m. Individuals can register for this Zoom program at whitewaterlibrary.org.
The Wisconsin Bureau of Consumer Protection will present information on home improvement practices and contracts under Wisconsin law. Wisconsin residents sign home improvement contracts every day to make improvements to their homes and property. It is important to understand the consumer protection laws that are in place to protect you before you enter into this type of contract. As part of the presentation, you will learn about tips on hiring a contractor, contractor requirements, and required contract provisions. Home improvement resources will be available to all attendees. As Wisconsin’s lead agency for consumer protection, the Bureau of Consumer Protection at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection provides information and education, mediates complaints, investigates cases, and takes enforcement actions to fight fraudulent and deceptive practices that harm consumers and honest businesses.
