How long does a contractor have to be absent and not in communication

How long does a contractor have to be absent and not in communication as far as work schedule have to be before he has "abandoned" the jobsite?

BizAttorney :

Hello, I am a professional here to assist you. I appreciate your use of this service.

BizAttorney :

Please say Hello when you are ready to begin.

BizAttorney :

I see you need information about the law in Arizona pertaining to a contractor who is deemed to have abandoned a job.

BizAttorney :

ARS Section 32-1154 lays out the grounds under which a contractor may face sanction from the state regulatory body. Abandonment or refusal to perform are violations.

BizAttorney :

The law does not define abandonment in terms of a time requirement. Abandonment is determining based on an examination of the facts in each situation. If a complaint is filed with the regulatory body or a civil suit is filed "abandonment" is determined by the trier of fact such as a judge. The evidence involved is examined to determine if the contractor actually had no intent to return to finish the work. Considerations will include the deadline in a contract, the relationship and work history of the parties and the statements and actions of the contractor.

Thanks but I could still see your response. I was reading the actual law when the screen changed. I would like to be able to finish reading that in conjuction with your answer.

I did not provide the actual text of the law. Do you want a link to the text of the law?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


That's funny. When I clicked on it, came up then jumped back to your answer. Yes, please.

Here is the link to the text of ARS Section 32-1154.

The law you cited is in the Arizona Registrar of Contractors section. I have spoken to them and it is important for the end user (me) to understand the area of AZ laws you are using. They told me they wouldn't look into a problem if I fixed it before they inspected it which can take 3 weeks to 400 days.


 


Anyway, thanks for your help. This service could send a lot of people off "half-cocked".
