Firing a contractor
I need some advice. I just fired a contractor. He was a disgrace for the construction industry.
He was supposed to finish a bathroom by April 11th, it's the end of May and he still hasn't pass electrical inspections (failed twice).
Today I kicked him out of the house.
I know he's gonna put a lien on the house, and try to collect the rest of the money. It's not much money I owe him anyway, but does anybody how's the procedure to get another contractor working on the house??
I'm checking with my lawer later today, but I think we need to document the status of his work, and then I'll need another contractor to pull new permits and everything, right?
Anybody has any experience with bad contractors and how to cancel their contracts? I'm in NJ by the way.
Thanks for any help.
If he has most of the money already, and is a month and a half behind schedule, I doubt he will lien your house or sue you. He is probably relieved to be out of there. Sounds pretty clear he was over his head and probably losing money.
