GALVESTON — A Texas home builder is suing a Galveston County couple, alleging breach of contract in failing to pay more than $283,000.
Putnam Builders filed a lawsuit Oct. 24, in the Galveston County District Court against Joseph A. Briers, et al, alleging a breach of contractual obligations.
According to the complaint, on June 28, 2015, Putnam Builders entered into a contract for the construction of the Briers' home with a lien on the lot in San Leon to secure payment. At the time of filing, the suit says, the house is approximately 70 percent complete.
The plaintiff, the lawsuit states, suffered damages of $283,685.42 for labor and materials expended and lost overhead and profit because the defendant unilaterally terminated the contract and refused to pay the plaintiff for the work performed.
Putnam Builders seeks trial by jury, judgment for $283,685.42, the foreclosure of plaintiff's lien on the property by an order to sell the subject lot and improvements, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other applicable relief. It is represented by attorney Marcus E. Faubion of Friendswood.
