Free seminar for contractors

--- What you need to know about the new laws

(Published Sept. 17, 2007, 2:35 p.m.)

The law firm of Godfrey, Leibsle, Blackbourn and Howarth, S.C., 354 Seymour Court, Elkhorn, 723-3220, www.godfreylaw.com, will be presenting a free seminar presented by attorneys Kim Howarth and Mara Spring.

Last year the Wisconsin Legislature enacted several provisions affecting the construction industry. Of great concern to builders and subcontractors is the new continuing education requirement, going into effect Jan. 1, 2008.

The public is invited to discuss this new provision and what you need to do in order to continue applying for building permits.

The new Right to Cure law will also be discussed and its application to construction defect disputes between contractors and homeowners. The morning will wrap up with a refresher on construction liens in Wisconsin and a question and answer session. You will take away from this seminar a copy of the Department of Commerce Right to Cure brochure, as well as sample clauses on the Right to Cure and Lien Law to include in your contracts.

A continental breakfast will be provided and reservations are due by Sept. 21.
