What I am asking here is can YRC pursue me for payment of this bill. They are currently getting past due collection noticies regarding this invoice as we have not remitted payment due to the nature of the bill.
No, their bill is not valid. The mistake was not
yours, but theirs. There is no reason why they should be sending you a bill at triple the cost for an action that you had no control over. If they or another third party had make a mistake, then they or the other third party is liable for the extra cost.
At this time, someone in your situation may wish to write back a letter stating that unless they agree to their ORIGINAL quote, you will file a declaratory judgment
under Ca. Code of Civ. Proc. § 1060 et seq
, demanding that the Court declare what is fair. A declaratory judgment is a request of the Court to determine what is fair and equable in an unforeseen situation, such as this (and the court is likely to side with you).
Very often,they will simply agree to waive the extra fees to avoid litigation
. Let me know if you need a sample letter.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Best of luck.
