My wife signed the contract with Semer Solaris. I don't like the way they have been doing business with us.
Unfortunately, this is what I see happening. The crappy thing is, some companies will "let you" break the contract, only to come back with litigation in 6 months, when you aren't expecting it. I saw this happening in 08 and 09. When work slowed, it was like lawyers needed work too. They started checking wherever money may have been left on the table.If you’ve got a contract, you’ve got a contract. They’ll most likely purse lost profit. Not sure what the contract sum was but I’d assume 25%
Not a hero loan. My wife can't work right now (realtor)If it's affordability you're worried about, then think about what Mandelon suggested.
It's wonky right now, mainly due to the quarantine. A homeowner can say I don't want a contractor on my property, but on the flip-side, a contractor can also say I couldn't send any workers to the jobsite due to CV.
What type of financing, is it a HERO loan?
I agree 100% that's why I too was asking about a start/finish. A solid contract will also have a payment schedule upon % complete, also dates for those stages to be completed. Counter contracts (protect the purchaser) also should have happened with penalties built in if work isnt completed on time, as the contractor contract should have penalties built in if completed work isnt paid by schedule date. Most contractor and purchaser contracts allow to many gray areas allowing a good contract lawyer to draw up a release of contract for a minimal fee.A legal contract should have a start and finish date.
But just call them and ask. Tell em you have changed your mind or that you can't afford it due to the virus stuff.
They gave a 3 day period, I didn't know my wife had signed it. I was expecting a phone cal after they had sent the guy out to measure and check some things. Instead they just sent a contract.You signed a contract and you don't know how to read the section on cancellation?
Agreed the CSLB is not a guarantor however if in violation of license law the contractor’s bonding co will pay.Business and profession code 7159There's no CSLB recourse; work has not started and CSLB is not a guarantor, or a collection agency. CSLB is an administrative licensing body - they are a neutral 3rd party and are tasked with identifying violations of licensing laws ranging from poor workmanship, to technical contract violations (no start/stop dates, no ML warnings, etc).
I think the OP, like many, will have to wait and see how everything shakes out.
Perhaps. But, it doesn't change the fact the OP cannot use CSLB to unwind a contract.Agreed the CSLB is not a guarantor however if in violation of license law the contractor’s bonding co will pay.Business and profession code 7159
Flip the back feed breaker.Call the city building department to see if they submitted a plan for your solar then you’ll know if they are working on it OR sitting on it.
my brother has panels on his roof for 3 or 4 years and the solar company never got a final inspection to turn them on so they are not generating any power.....
he has called the company to say come get em!
They don’t respond
