– 12 May 2023 – Home101 interior decoration design
and construction flagship store, officially opened on January 2 this year, and is located on the 2nd floor of ihome Center, No. 369 Lockhart Road, Wanchai. With a total floor size exceeding 6,000 square feet, it provides Home101 customers with the best quality of services and total solution, including design, construction and materials. Consumers are Fed-up of Unfinished Renovations Cases
With reference to wide-spread media reports, there have been countless cases of incomplete design and construction projects, where customers have nowhere to appeal and pursue the issue in recent years.
Since design and construction projects usually involve engineering expertise, it is difficult for any ordinary consumer to be equipped with the necessary knowledge to understand the project details, cost and charges. Besides, as the industry has a large number of construction professionals, the manual skills and workmanship of different masters may vary greatly. It is now near impossible for customers to judge how to choose the right interior design company that meets their needs and requirements.
While there is room for improvement in the regulatory and supervision mechanism of the design and decoration industry under the Hong Kong laws and regulations, it makes it difficult to put an end to the incidents of unfinished decoration projects and payment disputes, with which the public from time to time suffers from misrepresentation, fraud, and financial losses during a renovation project. Since the amount in dispute is usually higher than $75,000, which cannot be recovered through the Small Claims Tribunal, and must be referred to a more complicated process through the district court for any claimed amount higher than $3,000,000.
However, this will inevitably create another huge amount of legal fees which an ordinary citizen may not be able to afford. As a result, despite of the decoration company’s irresponsibility and deception, many people would have no choice but to settle the dispute through private negotiations and forgo their own legal rights to pursue the matter, while suffering losses in many cases. This has damaged the reputation of the industry and shed the ethical and professional renovation companies in an undesirable light.
