- Technically yes, there is nothing illegal about it as long as there is no evidence of a contract - even oral contract or email correspondence can be accepted as a "contract" in the court of law.
Worst case, the builder can file a check bouncing case under the Negotiable Instruments Act to cause "trouble" - but in my view that is very unlikely for a reputable builder to do.CommentQuote1Flag
- Come to think of it, builder can't even file a criminal case under the Negotiable Instruments Act as, as far as I know, that is applicable only if check bounces due to "insufficient funds".
So, builders only remedy is likely to be to go to court and claim there was a contract and try to enforce it - again very unlikely that any builder will go through all the trouble...CommentQuote0Flag
