Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Claims; Elmo and Mary Lawrence. Provides relief to Elmo and Mary Lawrence who sustained more than $40,000 in damages from Carl E. Thacker, a licensed Virginia contractor hired by the Lawrences to renovate a house. The Lawrences fired Mr. Thacker from the project and were unable to obtain a judgement against Mr. Thacker before he committed suicide. The bill directs the State Board for Contractors to review the Lawrences' claim under the Contractor Transaction Recovery Act and determine if the conduct of the contractor amounted to improper or dishonest conduct. If the Board finds improper or dishonest conduct, the bill further directs the Board to allocate from the Contractor Transaction Recovery Fund the Lawrences' claim, subject to the limitations of the Act.
