In connection with improving your property to meet requirements

of the Housing Code, we suggest that you get several estimates
from reputable contractors or home improvement firms before sign-
ing a contract for the work to be done. Free estimates can be
obtained from the majority of contractors and home improvement
firms without obligation on your part. Ask your lawyer to explain
any contract BEFORE you sign it. If you cannot afford a lawyer,
free legal advice can be obtained from
