What is happening ?
Our company hired a General Contractor to do a Renovation of a house located in Tampa, Florida, for $62k and therefore, our company paid a "Initial Deposit" of $6k. The General Contractor did some demolitions, not all of them, got paid extra $4k and started trying to make us change order, to charge extra money. We said we wouldn't change order, that he would have to follow the contract as it is, to complete the renovation. But at this point, the General Contractor abandoned the job. and doesn't pick up calls, nor responds to e-mails.
The General Contractor didn't even pulled the permits to do this job, and more than 1 month has already passed since he was hired.
Last week, the General Contractor sent us one e-mail saying that he was cancelling the contract and that he would be doing the refund of "part" of our money, that he would still be calculating his costs related to the job, but even though, he didn't pay us nothing, nor responded to our e-mail asking him how much would he be willing to refund.
What we want ?
We want to recover our financial losses from this General Contractor, as most as possible.
What we have ?
We have the contract with the General Contractor, we have proof of payments, we have his e-mail asking to change order, we have references from previous jobs he has done, we have legal documents from his company and from his insurance and his License
What we offer to our Attorney ?
