From the Forum: How to Fire a Contractor

Photo by Grieslightnin


    A homeowner has decided that their contractor must be fired and is looking for advice on how to proceed. A significant amount of money has been spent to correct the issues the contractor caused, but the homeowner is not trying to recoup that money — they just want to cut their losses and get someone new on the job.

    How should the homeowner proceed? What documentation should they prepare and what should they do to ensure that the contractor doesn’t place a mechanic’s lien against the property?

    Please chime in with your advice.
