White v. Cridlebaugh, No. F053843

By FindLaw Staff on October 21, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In plaintiffs' action against various defendants including a building contractor involved in the construction of their retirement home, the judgment of the trial court is modified as the corporation that acted as the building contractor on the project violated the California's licensure requirements and, based on that violation, the homeowners are entitled under Business and Professions Code section 7031(b) to recover all compensation paid to the contractor for the unlicensed work. Furthermore, as a matter of statutory construction, the recovery authorized by section 7031(b) may not be reduced by an unlicensed contractor's claim of offset for materials and services provided in connection with the unlicensed work.
