A New Jersey contractor who reportedly refused to return a woman's deposit after she canceled repairs to her residence was taken into custody. The woman reportedly asked for the return of the deposit within three days after scheduling the repairs when she became suspicious of the man's services.
The woman reportedly needed to have her home raised to the new flood zone mandates resulting from Hurricane Sandy. She ultimately decided to have the contract reviewed by an attorney before canceling. The woman delivered the notice to the business within the appropriate period that had been mandated by the New Jersey Home Improvement Contractor Registration Act.
