    Default Recourse for Checks Written to a Contractor After Closing

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: North Carolina

    I bought a house and out of closing, my closing attorney held onto some of the seller's proceeds because of repairs agreed to post-closing. I was given checks addressed to a contractor who has proven unresponsive/unreliable. As a result, I'd like to get new checks issued to a different contractor or to myself so I can move forward with repairs. Is my closing attorney legally required to re-issue those checks?

    Thank you!

    Have you asked whomever issued the checks to either reissue them in the name of a new contractor or, perhaps in association with a release of claims, pay the remaining sum directly to you?

    Hey, thanks for the reply, and that's exactly what I will be doing. Closing attorney and I talked today and she will reissue checks to me once I get approval from my loan provider/lender. I was just concerned because my closing attorney was not easy to deal with at closing and tried to deny an appointment until I pushed but when I got in the same room today, it went smoothly.
