    The Lee BIA is here to assist the community in any way possible during the post clean-up/rebuild of Lee County. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this storm and we urge patience while dealing with the aftermath. We want all citizens to be aware that unlicensed contractors will be preying on people who desperately want to get back into their homes. Don't be a victim twice! 

    If approached, do not hire someone who just knocks on your door and never, never give any cash deposits. Please follow the information below: 

    • Obtain at least three estimates from licensed contractors. 

    • Get the estimate in writing.

    • Ask for and check references.

    • Ask for proof of insurance.

    • Get a written contract.

    • Make sure all work that requires city/county inspection is officially approved and in writing before final payment! 

    Please note that you can check contractor licenses and report unlicensed activity at www.myfloridalicense.com. You can also contact the Lee County Sheriff's Department. For a list of BIA Members, you can visit our online membership directory at the top of this page.
