MR. & MRS. G. V. SAVE-A-TREE AND SCENIC LANDSCAPING
This is one of long line of cases in which this firm represented plaintiffs against contractors involving violations of the Home Improvement Act (N.J.A.C. 13:45a-16 et seq) which pursuant to Cox v. Sears are per se violations of the Consumer Fraud Act. This matter was settled for a substantial sum just prior to trial. Both these matters were before the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey, Law Division venued in Bergen County. These cases emphasize that the Home Improvement Act includes services rendered in matters other than actual construction to include landscaping, lighting, tree services and other similar such improvements and additions to existing homes.
