Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. Yes, it is possible you can fire your contractor and break the contract. However, there needs to be a legal basis for it and to support it. If the contractor is failing to perform under the contract/ agreement, then they would be in breach. If there is an issue, concern or breach, then you, as the other party, need to advise the builder,in writing and give them a chance to cure the problems. If they are unable to do so or fail to do so, then you can break the contract and find another party to finish the home and sue them for damages. You shared that you signed some "sort of" contract so you do need to look over and review exactly what was signed and just how binding it is. A valid contract would have a date of completion and terms and conditions which lay out the details of the job.
