yes, the price quoted and the price submitted to the township for permit is different from what i am being billed.
they are rejecting my request for correction of price. they filled in the blanks and then said this is what i agreed, but i did not. the salesmen states he would send me copy of the contract via email, but he never did and the disc he left me with is blank. I feel this iwas a fruadulent transaction. only proof i have about the cost of the project, is the documents the contractor sent to the township with the total cost of 4,471.00 but they billed me 13,000.00.
in your opinion,the quote the contractor submitted to the township and the blank copy that I have ( not the filled in later copy that the company have) would that help me prove my case? if so, i do I proceed with legal action against the company, it is a 14, 000.00 difference between bill and docmuents sent to township for permits to do the work. the company states, if I do not pay the billed amout, they will notifiy all three credit reporting agencies.
the work is completed except for the medicine cabinet they refuse to install saying it was not part of the contract. if I do not pay them, they will report negatively to credit reporting agency which would affect me negatively. can they garnish my pay without going to court,? Should I do this with out legal representation?
How should i proceed, just not pay them and let them sue me?
should I stop paying them ?
are there lawyers who do this kind of law and how do i search for them?
