HARRISBURG, Pa. (Legal Newsline) - Pennsylvania acting Attorney General Bill Ryan announced on Monday that his office has reached an assurance of voluntary compliance with a contracting company that allegedly provided shoddy work and issued incorrect contracts.

J. Heaton General Contracting LLC and John Heaton, its president, allegedly performed substandard and incomplete work.

A complaint filed against Heaton alleged that the contractor was not in compliance with the contract that was signed, and that the work that was completed was shoddy, substandard and not in compliance with the contract.

Heaton's company is also allegedly missing numerous requirements in its contracts. Although required by law, the contracts are missing the buyer's right of rescission, notice of cancellation, registration number, signature, date of the contract, telephone number, start and end dates of the contract, and a toll-free number, it is alleged.

J. Heaton General Contracting LLC is registered under the Home Improvement Contractor Registration Act.
