What is the Deadline for a Contractor to Accept a Subcontractor's Quote?

Matthew DeVries
In an interesting court case from 1987 in Virginia (Piland Corporation v. Ree Construction Co., 672 F.Supp. 244 (E.D. Va. 1987), the court ruled that the contractor had failed to provide timely notice to the subcontractor that it had accepted its quote.  The contractor filed a lawsuit for breach of contract that the court ruled against.

Nashville, Tennessee construction attorney Matthew J. DeVries has a good blog entry describing more details of this case.  Click here to view the blog entry.
