Arizona Contractor's Recovery Fund

How can a homeowner collect from an Arizona contractors' license bond?


How Much Can Be Paid from the Recovery Fund?

The maximum payout for residential contractors license is $200,000. Once the $200,000 has been disbursed to be your claims no further payments from the fund against that contractor's license shall be allowed. See A.R.S. 32 – 1132. A and 32 – 1139. A.

After an award is made from the recovery fund, who selects the contractor to make the repairs? ROC or homeowner?
