Customer Question

This question I assume would be for a real estate lawyer..I am in the process of building a home... The builder is financing the home .. I will pay him at closing... I have problems with this builder from the get go...He has ask me not to go on jobsite during work hours ... saying that his insurance rates would increase should I get hurt... hmmm.... that in itself should have been a red flag.. I don't think I am going to file a law suit on my builder if I get injured...Fast forward ... The home is about 3 weeks to completion... I have ask to meet with the contractor or superintendent to go through house to discuss some add ons and some concerns that will need to be address long before the final walk through...The builder has denied me the request and said he won't address any issues until final walk through... Do I have ANY legal recourse here? This guy is an idiot... pardon my directness...Thanks

1. What are the nature of the issues that you wish to address with the builder at this time? 2. Are they of the type that constitute a material breach on his part at this stage of the game? 3. What does the contract say about midstream modifications and add-ons that are new news to the builder?
