A: In Nevada, the situation where a construction company adds fees to a final invoice without providing a change order, agreement, or obtaining your signature raises concerns regarding the legitimacy of those additional charges. If significant work remains incomplete and you are dissatisfied with the results, it's crucial to review the original contract and any change orders that were previously signed. If there is no documentation supporting the new fees, and you did not agree to them in writing, you may have grounds to dispute the charges.
