Hello! I am getting back in the saddle after failing 4.0 CDA. (Sigh).
My office purchased the Brightwood Series and the Kaplan Online Test Subscription. My overall view of the series is that the language, question writing is pretty much the same as the 4.0. However, I ran across this question and wonder in its validity in regards to the A-201.
The Question: An architect issues certificates for payment for work performed by the contractor. For what reasons might an architect legitimately nullify all or part of a previously issued certificate for payment?
- The architect discovers defective work.
- The owner's lender refuses to release funds.
- The contractor fails to pay subcontractors.
- A pedestrian walking past the project site is injured by a falling piece of lumber and sues the owner.
- The contractor persistently fails to comply with the contract documents
Answer: I, III, IV, and V. (The answer is I, III, IV, and V. See subparagraph 9.5.1 of the AIA General Conditions for payment nullification reasons. All of the reasons listed, except for the lender's refusal to release funds (II), are legitimate.)
WHY is IV correct? or is it?
