I have a new house with walkout basement and I wanted to build the basement to help me in property tax. I found a guy who was doing a work in the neighborhood and hired him. I did enquired the people before sign the contract. I am doing a legal basement with a city permit and had an agreement with him. He was ok until the 3rd payment and finished as per agreement. After some time his attitude changed and not showing to the work or finishing the rest of the work. He is the builder only and he has other people to work for him. It took a while for our city permit and we got it in 18th April 2019 and so far 3 months and 20 days passed still 20% of the work is there. I keep sending message and he has got another two houses which he is going to demolish and re-build. I always see him in other projects and always telling me someone will come tomorrow. I have 2000$ pending and he has to get me the final inspection done. The following work is still pending: 1 I closed back entrance door with brick and he has not completed the framing, vapor barrier and dry wall. 2. has not connected the dryer. 3. Electrical panel door has not been completed. 4. I see holes in the dry wall and needs to closed. 5. Caulking missing every where. 6. Backsplash 7. Has not removed the construction garbage.
I have approched the city and consumer protection. What are my options? Any one to help me to complete the rest of the work mentioned? Thanks in Advance. SK
It is possible to, you must also be aware that it might cost you more than you budgeted. The new contractor will have to make an assessment of what the old contractor have than and the two parties will come to a understanding.
