Legal Answers
183 Questions Answered
Q. Can GC refuse to pay a change order if the work was performed but the change order wasn't turned in by a specific time?
A: It would probably be best to have an attorney review the contract before providing you advice on this question. Generally speaking, the terms of the written contract are enforceable. I think ultimately the contractor would have to show some prejudice that occured due to the failure to submit on a timely basis. If they authorized the work and you did the work, then they clearly got the value of the work performed. The contract probably also says that all change orders have to be in writing, but they have probably been requesting and paying for change orders without writings, so there is a question of whether they may have waived certain provisions of the contract by conduct.
Q. I'm in NC. DO I have to sign a Confession of Judgment agreement with a bill collector? I have the debt & have agreed to
A: No, you are not required to sign a Confession of Judgment. However, the creditor may require it as a condition to allowing you to make payments over a long term. Please contact an attorney discuss this issue before proceeding.
Q. How long is the builder liable for faulty construction on a new house? Purchased August 2020, lots of structural issues.
A: The statute of limitations for a contract is three years. However, there is also a statute of repose in North Carolina of six years for faulty construction. At the very least, you should given written notice to the builder of any issues that have arisen or that are warranty issues.
