Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Home Repair and Remodeling Act. Provides that provisions concerning home repair services following damaging weather shall not be construed to prohibit a contractor from discounting the total cost of any home repair or remodeling project when a person requesting services performs some of the work necessary to complete the requested home repair or remodeling project. Provides that when a written contract with a contractor offering home repair or remodeling services to provide goods or services to be paid from the proceeds of a property and casualty insurance policy is cancelled, the contractor shall tender to the insured only those payments, partial payments, or deposits made by the insured that are in excess of any restocking fees paid by the contractor upon returning materials or supplies bought in anticipation of full performance under the contract. Provides that a contractor offering home repair or remodeling services may post a bond in order to ensure that full contract performance is completed and upon posting of a bond, full payment shall be rendered to the contractor.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Home Repair and Remodeling Act. Defines the term "catastrophe" as an event that destroys 3 or more residences, rather than more than one residence.
