70% of home renovations done without contract
In 70% of housing renovations, customers do not enter into a written contract with construction contractors and do not look after the contractor, the president of the National Trade Union of Construction Contractors (ÉVOSZ) László Koji said, according to news channel M1.
Koji added that the state support program will improve the situation considerably, because reimbursement requires a written contract, which includes an itemized agreement on the tasks to be performed.
This will clean up the market, he added. As the need for renovation is occurring en masse in Budapest, professionals and companies will meet a significant demand from the beginning of the year, so the waiting time will probably not decrease, Koji said.
