Roofing contractor in Florida has a clause in their Agreement, regarding the right of the non breaching party to terminate the agreement with 2 days notice and the client to pay the contractor for completed work including labor and purchased materials prior to the termination. but the clause also includes the following language ..."in addition to the contractors overhead and profit on the portion of work uncompleted as of the cancellation date." Is this last sentence usual language which should be acceptable to the client. Why would the client have to pay anything on uncompleted work when the contractor is in breach?...Read More

Hello, I just recently built a house in Texas. To keep it simple, we found a contractor we liked and vetted and paid them to build our house. At the end of the building, we were happy with the work they had done and payed the final installment. About 8 months later we are discussing with our CPA about making tax write-offs since we are using it as a business. He agrees we can make tax write-offs for certain expenses. We (he) examine the books and realize we were double-billed for certain building materials for the house. The total double-billed was around $35,000. My question is how do we go forward with this to get our over-billed money back? Thank you very much!...Read More

Hello, I need your help. One of my suppliers forgot to bill me $60k for materials delivered on to my job 5 months ago. They said it was an oversight. They decided to add the old invoices now 5 months later. They had already provided me with Unconditional waivers month after month which means I dont owe them for anything, especially 5 month old materials. I would pay them but covid has really hurt us and we also dont have the money. The biggest issue I have now is that my contractor will not pay me until I provide them with the new unconditional waiver that the supplier does not want to provide because of the new invoices. If I dont get paid, I cant go on and pay for payroll. I am planning on walking off the job but now I am concerned the contractor wont pay me my retainer of $250k. The contract doesnt state anything about a right to stop work provision. I also know this may cause collateral damage. What do you recommend I do? I cant have employees work and not pay them. ...Read More

I DID some labor work for my dad's girlfriend. We agreed upon $15 hr and I worked for hours. She has been giving me cash here and there. However, now that the job is complete she is arguing over the hours I worked and how much is actually still owed to me. Now she has sent a check via certified mail and on the memo line has written Cash Paid $775\Paid in Full. The check amount is$225. She still owes $1636.00. I seriously need to cash the check as she hasn't paid me anything since mid October. There is no contact in writing as this was only a verbal agreement. Could you tell me the law in Texas regarding this type of matter? ...Read More
