What can you do when you have a contract with a bad contractor?
Hiring a contractor for your project is a big decision, and it can be frustrating when things don’t go as planned. If you suspect that you have a bad contractor working on your project, it’s important to take action quickly. The first step is to quantify what work is left to finish and the actual cost to complete it. This will give you a clear understanding of the situation and help you make informed decisions.
It’s also crucial to know what and who your contractor has paid up to date on your project, as well as the amount left to complete the project. This information will help you determine if you have been overbilled by the contractor or if they are delaying the project unnecessarily.
If you do decide to fire your contractor, it’s important to understand your legal rights and obligations. You may need to obtain lien waivers from subcontractors or suppliers who have worked on your project before making final payments.
