The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry updates its 2014 list of residential building contractor consent orders and other licensing actions. So far, the list from January 1, 2014 through July 31, 2014 includes over 140 licensed individuals and companies who have been subject to some sort of licensing action. These violations can come from neglecting customers, failure to use your proper name and license number on all contract documents and advertisements, or, the biggest source of issues, legally deficient contracts. Residential construction contracts in Minnesota must have certain disclosures and notices provided in order to be legally sufficient.
