I HEREBY CANCEL THIS TRANSACTION
(h) Within 10 days after a contract referred to in subsection (e) has been cancelled, the contractor offering home repair or remodeling services shall tender to the insured any payments, partial payments, or deposits made by the insured and any note or other evidence of indebtedness. If, however, the contractor has provided any goods or services related to a catastrophe, acknowledged and agreed to by the insured in writing to be necessary to prevent damage to the premises, the contractor is entitled to the reasonable value of such goods and services. Any provision in a contract referred to in subsection (e) that requires the payment of any fee for anything except goods or services related to a catastrophe shall not be enforceable against any insured who has cancelled a contract pursuant to this Section.
(i) A contractor offering home repair or remodeling services shall not represent, or offer or advertise to represent, on behalf of a homeowner on any insurance claim in connection with the repair or replacement of roof systems, or the performance of any other interior or exterior repair, replacement, construction or reconstruction work; or otherwise violate the Public Adjusters Law (Public Act 96-1332). A Public Adjuster means any person who acts on behalf of the insured in preparing and adjusting a claim for loss or damage covered by an insurance contract. A contractor offering home repair or remodeling services shall not call in or file a claim to an insurance carrier on the insured's behalf. A contractor offering home repair or remodeling services shall not climb on a roof or inspect for exterior damage without the insured's express permission. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to prohibit a residential contractor from: (1) providing an insured an estimate for repair, replacement, construction, or reconstruction of the insured's property and any such estimate may be submitted to the insured's insurance company; (2) conferring with an insurance company's representative about damage to an insured's property; or (3) discussing repair or replacement options with an insurance company's representative or the insured about options for the repair or replacement of the damage.
