First, a contractor calls on phone or knocks on your door and offers to install a new roof or remodel your kitchen at a price that sounds reasonable. You tell him youíre interested, but canít afford it. He tells you itís no problem Ė he can arrange financing through a lender he knows. You agree to project and contractor begins work.
At some point after contractor begins, you are asked to sign a lot of papers. The papers may be blank or lender may rush you to sign before you have time to read what youíve been given to sign. You sign papers. Later, you realize that papers you signed are a home equity loan. The interest rate, points and fees seem very high. To make matters worse, work on your home isnít done right or hasnít been completed, and contractor, who may have been paid by lender, has little interest in completing work to your satisfaction.
