We heard from a San Diego area HOA who told us of their problems with WICR.
WICR entered a contract with this HOA for 6 figures. The contract/bid was done by Fred Wanke last year before he had left.
The contract (which was signed nearly 9 months ago) with the Association did not apparently have a start date (read CSLB’s requirements for contracts here) or finish date. WICR has apparently failed to start the job.
The Association wanted out and told WICR that. Now WICR has sicced their lawyer, Irina Mazor onto them and is demanding “damages”.
We’ve advised the HOA to contact an aggressive and knowledgeable construction attorney to assist them and to file a complaint with CSLB about the tactics being employed. We also suggested that the State Bar Association might be interested if any ethical or legal issues from Mrs. Mazor’s work appear to be in violation of state law.
With David Mazor now at the helm and his dog (attorney) doing his bidding, Associations should be very wary of WICR. Insist on using YOUR contract, drawn up by YOUR attorney, don’t sign theirs. It is not going to protect you very well and is written to favor WICR.
In fact, we recommend that you just don’t put WICR on your bid list at all and save yourself a hassle. There’s much better contractors out there.
