I am having a dispute with a painting contractor over a

Customer Question

I am having a dispute with a painting contractor over a final payment. the original quote just scribbled on a piece of paper was $3500.00 + paint I have already paid two instalment one of $2912.99 and one of $1651. The job was not completed as required and he returned to finish it .another account of $836.71. he demands this payment and I have requested him to send me a tax invoice for the job so I can make this payment. He refuses to issue an invoice until the payment has been made.do I need to make this payment before I receive the invoice?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: SA
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: not yet I am already $2000 out of pocket
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: in a nut shell that is what it is. the job has been plagued by problems from day 1

Hello
No, I would strongly rely upon the original quote, make payment of that amount and cease further contact.

They are in the business of painting, they should have quoted an amount that was foreseen, with their expert opinion.
