A few months could very well have elapsed and the work may be pending.
At this point, the developer/builder may be asked by the homeowner to clarify matters. Once the seemingly lackadaisical attitude of the developer is noticeable heated arguments may ensue followed by threats of a possible lawsuit by the homebuyer. The threat of a lawsuit is a deterrent for the contractor/builder who may retaliate by waiving off suing rights by signing one of the legal documents. Subsequently, the contractor who was unresponsive and had bolted would take the initiative of contacting the homebuyer.
The homebuyer may ask the contractor to share copies of all relevant documents. If there is documentary evidence of waiving off suing rights amongst other rights then, in that case, it gets complicated, someone with little or no experience at all in real estate law ought to refer the case to an expert real-estate lawyer after providing initial legal advice.
