Fraud, scam artist, con artist, fraudulent business practices.

Stay away from Chris Lim who is the owner and does business as Modern Redevelopment, Neighborhood Consulting Inc, primo Construction, Tricor Construction and his contractors Felix Hurtado and Keith Blackwell.

Manipulative con artist. I have been ripped off and left abandoned after pre-paying $118, 000 on my house remodel.

I was ripped off as I am simply too nice, conned into pre-paying for work that was never completed and left with work that wasn't done to building code. Extremely poor workmanship and left with property damages with leaving my house exposed w/o roof to the rain. when I had pre-paid for my contract. Contractor was never present to supervise his staff when they were actually here, then sent unlicensed, inexperienced staff to do work with no knowledge of how to perform their assigned duties. They had no intentions of finishing my house and have run away with my money.

Stay away.

If you have purchased a house, or considering purchasing a house from this scam artist, get a building inspection as he uses unlicensed contractors to do his home remodels.

Be aware and be warned. Do research and you will find this company has had disciplinary action before.

These guys are crooks, scam artists, and this so called waiver to allow Christopher Lim off the hook is void as it was created in fraud and manipulation.

I have commenced legal action against Christopher Lim’s company, contractors and look forward to my day in court.

See attached Dismissal. I can't believe this gentleman harassed me for 2 years! In response, I defended MYSELF in pro per and STILL WON! I did this out of principle. Why should I be punished with having to pay attorney fees when I didn't do anything wrong. See attached request for dismissal by plaintiff.

Pete Edwards gave his credit card directly to Felix. Who does that? Why would you give someone else your credit card? Now he's trying to sue me for that as well?

He didn't even have a contract with Felix for the work to be performed so there was not even an agreed upon timeline for the work to be performed. Peter Edwards is a discombobulated man.

Vindictive man, Chef Peter Edwards of Bel-Air Bay Club and Santa Monica Seafood -- See attached waiver

How could the renowned Bel-Air Bay Club and Santa Monica Seafood trust a dishonorable man to make such important decisions? I would not trust nor digest a thing he says or makes.

1. Neighborhood Consulting has nothing to do with anything. Why did he include the entity into his thoughtless complaint?

2. Modern Redevelopment and Christopher Lim exited the project very early due to the unscrupulous nature of Chef Peter Edwards.

Be careful with this man. Chef Peter Edwards is wicked and tricky.

See attached Agreement/Signed Waiver. He and Modern Redevelopment agreed to a waiver and MR exited the project in the beginning, due to his unscrupulous nature, which he signed. SEE ATTACHED.
