Cabinets half installed

3 posts in this topic

During kitchen renovations, contractor brought a guy to design and install the kitchen cabinets. He brought the base cabinets and installed them and is asking for the rest of the money before finishing. He already got paid for half the agreed upon fees before starting. His cabinets were not what we had agreed on and wasted a lot of cabinet space and most his measurements were wrong.  We thought we had come to an understanding and compromise but now he says he has to get paid in full before agreeing to finish the job. What are my rights?

FYI, it is illegal for a home improvement contractor to require a down payment in excess of $1,000 or 10% of the value of the contract, whichever is less.

Like everyone, you have dozens of legal rights, but creating or attempting to create a list of rights would serve no useful purpose.

 

Carefully read your contract.  It is unlikely that you have any obligation to pay "the rest of the money before [the contractor] finish[es]."  If you can't resolve this to your satisfaction, consider making a claim against the contractor's license bond.  You can look up the contractor and obtain info regarding his bond at the State License Board's website.
