Terminating the Contract
When can either side terminate the contract? When is enough enough? There are numerous disputes that occur when either party terminates the home contractor-homeowner relationship. The homeowner may claim that the contractor has abandoned the job. A contractor may believe that the homeowner wrongfully terminated the contract, and that the job would have been properly completed if hehad been given the opportunity to finish. Courts may hold either party liable for wrongfully terminating a contract.
So, how can the parties know what to do when the relationship goes sour? I will cover this topic in my next series of posts, and welcome comments from those of you who have dealt with this issue.
