In February, Brady contracted to construct a house for Fulghum for $206,850. Brady began construction on March 13. Neither during the negotiation of this contract nor when he began performance was Brady licensed as a general contractor as required by North Carolina law. Brady was awarded his builder’s license on October 22, having passed the examination on his second attempt. At that time, he had completed two-thirds of the work on Fulghum’s house. Fulghum paid Brady $204,000. Brady brought suit, seeking an additional $2,850 on the original contract and $29,000 for “additions and changes” Fulghum requested during construction. Is Fulghum liable to Brady? Explain.
The contract between Individual B and Individual F was unenforceable since Individual B did not have the required license, for the construction of the house, at the time of entering the contract.
So, Individual B cannot claim any additional charges for construction from Individual F, even after obtaining the license during the construction period.
Individual B did not have the required license to construct the house for Individual F at the time of entering the contract; no additional charges were mentioned in the contract. So, Individual F is not liable to pay any additional charges to Individual B.
