question iconLegal advice on Building contractor

Need legal advice.
We've been building our house by hiring a contractor in Chennai. Due to labours competency we had to terminate the contract. The building is now 60% complete.

Now the issue is with contractor's closure billing.

As per his bill, he's charging us for 'Claim Due to project termination' as 6 Lakhs and 'Material Price Esclation' which we didn't agree during our termination discussion nor it's been mentioned in the signed agreement.

Please let me know to tackle this.

Please do not provide your contact details here. We share your contact details on demand from the client.

A.Dear Client,
It is required to examine the contract papers signed by and between parties, as well as the document in which you terminated the contract and specified the grounds for termination, as well as the contractor's response in this respect. Please consult a lawyer for the same.
Thank you!

A.It is necessary to scrutinize the Contract papers entered by and between parties as well as the document through which you had terminated such contract specifying the grounds of such termination as well as the reply of that contractor in this regard. To give opinion, relevant documentary evidences are to be scrutinized as a whole.

question iconi do not want t join a company but i have signed contract with them
Dear client Since you have signed a contract then as a prudent person you will have to abide by and honour the contract else they will be filing a case against you to recover the due amount that you had agreed to pay them if you donot join.
question iconContradiction in validity of Agreement and the Notary Stamp.
Dear Client, An expiration date will be applicable on the seal when the notary  stamps the document. The agreement will be valid as long as the date shown on the seal used in the notarization  is valid. It also depends on the nature of the documents in question. If the document specifies that it is valid for one year, then the document will be valid for the same period. As per the Notary Act, the notary only verifies the authenticity and validates the execution of the Agreement. Therefore, it cannot change the terms and conditions of your agreement. It is essential that you send the document before it expires. You won't have to go through the notarization procedure again this way. Thanks.
question iconIssue with bank job ?
Dear client, You can be an employee of another company while being a director of a company – Companies Act, 2013 does not clearly specify or prohibit the same. So no liability will fall upon you as you are no more a director and just a bank employee. Thank You.
question iconRailways cancelled the PO. How to challenge it ?
See owing to the COVID-19 lot of philosophies around the contractual terms and conditions have been modified to accommodate the problems of people, supplier, business etc. I think you can challenge the railways action in court of law and get favourable judgement in your favour.
question iconCompany forcing new contract terms post resignation
Dear Sir, None of the above clauses binds you and just sign the same and at the appropriate time he cannot implement the same against you. If you do not sign you will be in danger. I could have explained more if background is known to me. I am at your service if you visit my office. Please give me FIVE STAR if satisfied by my answers and you may approach me through Vidhikarya for further clarifications.
