Home Repair & Home Products

Buying a home is expensive. You have to hire movers, furnish your new place and pay for repairs. Before you buy that new sofa or hire a contractor to fix your roof or renovate your home, read our tips to find out how to avoid problems and scams. 
You can find useful tips on selecting the right contractor and get information about homeowner’s associations and home warranties. 
If you are renting a house or apartment, you can also read the landlord/tenant booklet to learn about your rights and responsibilities when it comes to security deposits, maintenance and damage to the property.
