I am ready to pull the trigger on a modest expansion of Casa Saddleburr to accommodate a lifestyle lift to the old hacienda.
The language of the contract is sadly humorous. The verbiage of the contract addresses the ‘Unavoidable Delay’ provision.
Yeah. I understand that it starts with unavailability of materials. That’s understandable. It’s within reason and something that can be resolved with a mere discussion and a Plan B.
But after that, in order of predictable delays are:
Changes in Governmental Regulation
Acts of Governmental Agencies or their employees
Acts of God
So the bottom line is that the really high risk component of this contract starts with the human debris that comprises the faceless government bureaucrats at all levels.
This is what the remodeler truly fears because a government predisposed to put its boot on the neck of small business is something to be feared.
And if God were to throw a hurricane or tornado in the mix that would be an extreme. If Government was to do so would be……predictable.
