Lytton Enterprises
We contacted Mr Lytton about building a new home for our growing family. He seemed very interested in the project, and met with us multiple times to discuss our plans and preferences. He priced a few different homes for us to see what our style and budget was. When we decided on a house plan and price, we met to finalize everything. He still seemed interested and excited to build with us. We left the meeting however, feeling like our questions weren't really answered. When Mr Lytton got back with us on the price for the bank, it was considerably higher than what he had been telling us. I contacted him about certain permitting costs that we were unsure of, and his responses were few and far between. His excuse was that he was busy. After weeks of barely any response from him through text, and unanswered phone calls, Mr Lytton completely stopped responding to us. We still have no idea why. Had he not been interested in building with us, he could have said so much earlier, and saved us a lot of time. Now we are starting from scratch again with a new contractor.Based on my experience, I cannot in good conscience recommend Lytton Enterprises to anyone.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
