Contractor can’t sue for more than limit of license (access required)

  1. Having taken the Class A Contractor’s Exam, working in this field as well as in law as a paralegal, and engineering, the fact is that every time a customer approaches a contract that is involved with a current contract to perform with new work or changes there is presented a a new offer and acceptance and therefore a new, seperate and distinct contract. It is the Contractor’s failure to reduce to writting the a new contract seperate and distinct from the original even though such was a verbal contract.

The contractor under the requirements of the Board of Contractors in the licensing process would be hard pressed to prove that he did not know the monetary limit of his license on the same note?

  2. Does anyone out there know how many states put monetary limits on a Contractors license, (which is totally unconsitutional)

  3. I’m interested in your analysis of how it’s totally unconstitutional.
