TexasConstruction Contract

i AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH PNC MORTGAGE. THEY ARE SAYING I NEED TO SHOW MY CONTRACTOR IS BONDED. IN THE STATE OF TEXAS WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A LICENSED CONTRACTOR SO THAT THE LITTLE MAN CAN HAVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A LIVING. I EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT I WAS GETTING HOME DEPOT TO PUT IN ALL OF THE FLOORING AND I WILL NEED A PLUMMER FOR THE TWO BATHS. WELL, I HAVE HIRED A FAMILY FRIEND AND HE HAS ALWAYS WORKED ON MY HOME MAKING REPAIRS , REPLACING WINDOWS, SHOWER AND TUB, FIXED AND PAINTED WALLS. HE HAS ALREADY STATED THE JOB. I MADE AN AGREEMENT WITH MR. FALSONE . I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE HELP ME .

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Ultimately, this sounds like it will come down to your agreement with PNC Mortgage. If the agreement states that bonded contractors must be used for any repairs, utilizing a non-bonded contractor could result in a breach of the agreement. Reaching out to PNC Mortgage for more clarity on this situation and negotiating an acceptable outcome would likely be a good start.
