Hired a contractor to do a fence. The contract we had included fee schedule but no completion date. After the contractor installed the posts, he was suppose to order the panels however he did not and ignored calls/emails for the past 3 month.
Q1. Can I terminate the contract and fire him? I have another contractor to finish the job, however I don't want the previous contractor to comeback with the old contract. Most of the work he done turned out not up to par, so I'm hoping he doesn't comeback at all...
Q2. The contractor never paid the suppliers for materials, and the suppliers came and want me to pay them directly since the contractor never did. Do they have any grounds in court or put a lien against me?
Just get your project finished, Pay for the materials, check to make sure that the posts were in the material order. Anyone can put a lien on your property, but they have to enforce it. The only think this contractor can do is take you to small claims court and I doubt that you will ever hear from him. These contractors are all over the country. Don,t worry just complete your fence.
Total General Contracting
The supplies were bought under his contractor account with the supplier, I paid him 1/3 at contract signing, 1/3 after the post was installed... However now the suppliers said the contractor never paid them? Am I liable to the supplier considering I never signed a agreement with them directly? Nor can they actually prove the post used are actually theirs?
Is there a legal way to fire the contractor and break the contracts? Or no since the work has already started?
