Guaranty Fund Workshop - Maryland Home Improvement Commission

 

The Maryland Home Improvement Commission offers a workshop to inform homeowners and contractors about the Guaranty Fund process. If you plan to file a claim or have already filed a claim and would like more information about the claim review process, or if you are a contractor against whom a claim has been filed, this workshop will provide valuable information to you. The workshop will help participants learn more about the Guaranty FUND and the claim process. Please note that we will not discuss specific claims during the workshop.
