what case law overrides contractors' contracts

Recommended Posts

What law or case law overrides any licensed contractor's agreement or contract that overrides responsibility when the issuing agency changes the guidelines or rules?

I'm unclear on what you're asking. Perhaps if you could be a little more specific as to the situation you are encountering -- don't use names, but explain generally what's going on.  Might be able to give you some guidance then.

 

In general, the law of the state where the contract was entered into governs the interpretation and enforcement of the contract terms (unless the contract terms include a choice-of-law clause designating a different state, in which case the law of the designated state will generally govern).  Depending on what the problem is, federal law might also apply.

In general, for state agencies that issue licenses, the law of that state governs agency action (although potentially in some circumstances federal law might also apply).

Huh?

 

What guidelines or rules?

 

What agency?

 

Issuing what?

 

What does "contract that overrides responsibiltiy" mean?

 

What is the subject of the contractor's agreement?  Residential construction?  Commercial?  Industrial?  Something else?
