Have had 2 excavators walk off job first one helped himself to a lot of oak trees and buried stumps in driveway,2 no one scared us for 5000.00 cash and disappeared he said he needed it for dirt and stone.our contractor did nothing he said it would cost to much to sue. We have already spent a extra 53000.00 And that's not all.

Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!

are you asking if you can pursue the contractor for breach of contract?

awaitng your reply.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
what would you consider breach of contract their is no time limit.

Breach of contract would be failure to perform as agreed. Where there are no time limits, courts consider reasonable time and what similar contractors would take to perform. Here the delay is unreasonable as commercial property is built in less time than this.

Is the answer clear and acceptable?
