    Default Contractor Bids Lower Price in Exchange for Good Review After Job

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: WA

    I encountered a contractor who offered a lower price on condition I write them a good review afterwards.

    Could I ever be legally obligated to write a good review against my opinion, if the job completed unsatisfactorily?

    My inclination is to avoid this type of contractors, but I wonder if I'm being overly cautious and limiting myself to a smaller selection of contractors.

    If you sign a contract that says you will pay $X, but will pay ($X - [discount]) if you leave a good review, then you will owe what you owe based upon the completion of the work and the review you leave. If you leave a bad review, you pay $X.

    You are also free to report that sort of shenanigan to the reviewing services, because it will violate their terms of service.
