At the start of the chapter is this scenario and question answer on
or more of the questions that follow….The Warrens hired Denison, a
building contractor, to build a house on their property for $73,400.
Denison’s construction deviated somewhat from the specifications for the
project. These deviations were presumably unintentional, and the cost
of repairing them was $1,941.50. The finished house had a market value
somewhat higher than the market value would have been without the
deviations. The Warrens refused to pay the $48,400 balance due under the
contract, alleging that Denison had used poor workmanship in building
the house and they were under no obligation to perform further duties
under the contract.
•Do the Warrens have the right to withhold all further payment?
