Oil Based paint on Trim and Baseboards is Chipping off Easily

I had a painting contractor paint the trim and baseboards throughout my home in October, 2002. He supposedly used an oil-based primer and oil-based paint (two coats) which I was told by the contractor would be more durable than latex. The paint now seems brittle or dry and chips off easily. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix or repair the problem? I noticed the contractor did little (almost no) sanding throughout the process and I wondered if this might have something to do with it's lack of staying power now. Also, could he have used the wrong type of primer or paint?

Thank you for your time and your help.

Joy
