Do you want to sue your contractor?
For many, buying a home is the realization of a dream and the single largest expense one may incur in their lifetime. Home renovations are often the second largest expense. The vast majority of home renovations go well, however, when renovations go wrong they cause an inordinate amount of inconvenience, stress and expense and sometimes turn into lawsuits. The Ontario Small Claims Court, which has jurisdiction to hear claims up to $35,000, and the Alberta Small Claims Court, which has jurisdiction to hear claims up to $50,000, is often called upon to adjudicate on renovation cases between homeowners and contractors.
