in 2008 I hired a general contractor to restore a condemned house using an HMA loan. He insisted he could manage the project and he hired subcontractors to do windows, the heavy up for the electrical system, and HVAC. He selected and payed for the HVAC system as my agent--I had no part of it, although he claims it was in my name. He did not register nor did he advise me that I had to register anything--it was obvious that I had to register the stove, fridge, etc. Now the blower motor has gone bad in the HVAC system and while it has a ten year guarantee, he failed to register it so the company doesn't want to replace it. He wants to charge me for a new fan and installation. I don't mind paying labor, but I think it was his duty as the person purchasing and contracting the HVAC to either register it or advise me that I should. I never got registration materials, which were in the back of an owner's manual that was behind the door of the unit. All I got was a handwritten receipt from the supplier. What do you think?

Are you wondering if it's too late to register the appliance? Sounds like that contractor screwed you over!
