Legal Answers
Q. My builder is not providing accurate accounting for the last draw of my construction loan. He refuses to correct it.
A: You need request a sworn contractor's statement from your contractor in writing. You are entitled to the sworn statement under Section 5 of the mechanics lien act which provides that an owner is not required to pay a contractor anything until he receives the sworn statement, but only if the contractor is asked for one. That should provide you an accounting and possibly protect you from subcontractor liens.
Q. Sub-contractor billing me for more than verbal quoted price
A: Next time get it in writing. Ask for time and material records to see if the records come close in value to the sub's claim.
Q. Unlicensed roof subcontractor, hidden from homeowner, did incomplete and unsatisfactory work, is homeowner breaching
A: I am not sure what your question is but under Illinois law, it is unlawful to do any roofing work without a license under the Roofing Industry Licensing Act.
