Cancellation Agreement

New York

Asked on Nov 16, 2021

How can I cancel the signed building repair contract in new york?

I have signed a contract to do repair work of home and it is in the last phase. The contract includes the work to the done and the amount allocated and it does not contain any clauses or date of completion for each phase. Currently, the contractor is not coming for work and not responding to emails and phone calls. 90% of work is done for paid work. No money is paid for pending work. I want to hire a new contractor. Is sending a letter indicating the contract is terminated due to non progress and pending work for paid amount is enough ?

I suggest you send the contractor an email and mail a written letter to him stating that you will not be completing the job with him.
