Q: what justifies a termination of a contract between two contractors after work has already been preformed mid project
Also have only been partially paid. And this is a verbal contract but i have substancial physical and mathematical evidence to prove my litigation. This is for a residental paint job about half complete
A Georgia attorney could address your question in the best possible manner because your remedies could involve elements of Georgia law. But your question remains open for two weeks. As a general manner, without regard to jurisdiction, such justification could be governed by the terms of the contract. If the contract outlined a certain job scope, technical specification, use of materials, and those things weren't met, that could constitute a breach and the basis for termination. But contacts between contractors are sometimes terminated without justification. If you feel that's the case, and that you complied with your end of the contract, you could consult with a Georgia attorney about your legal options. If the job is not very large, and you feel that legal expenses could consume what you stand to recover in terms of your damages for time and labor expended to date, you could look into small claims court. Good luck
'Sorry... in my response two minutes ago in the last two lines, I meant "damages for time and MATERIALS expended to date." I apologize.
