Penalties for using an illegal construction contract in Georgia:
  • Georgia Code Section 43-41-7 (the Written Warranty Act) requires that residential contractors deliver a written warranty against construction defects before starting work on any job valued at over $2,500. The Georgia State Licensing Board for Residential and General Contractors adopted Rule 553-7-.01 (effective August 4, 2008) which identifies what the written warranty must cover.
  • Georgia's Right to Repair Act requires that construction contracts include a notice which explains to owners their obligations under the law.
  • Georgia law voids any clause in a construction contract which would indemnify someone for their sole negligence.
  • Diverting funds for a purpose other than as required by contract is a felony punishable by imprisonment for from one to five years.
  • Omission of the notice required by Official Code of Georgia Annotated 10-1-3 (Home Solicitation) is punishable by a fine of $500 under 10-1-15.
  • Failure to make federal truth-in-lending disclosures requires restitution of the overcharge.
  • Failure to include the disclosures required by 12 Code of Federal Regulations Section 226.15 extends the right of rescission to three years (rather than three days).
  • Omitting insulation disclosures required by 16 Code of Federal Regulations Section 460 can result in an $11,000 fine.
