I have a contractor issue. I have paid almost his money

Customer Question

I have a contractor issue. I have paid almost his money (almost 75%) and the job has not finished yet. he is always procrastinating the project. And right now he is asking full amount to finish the project. And full amount also covers some jobs he did not even do.
In the contract, all permits and trash disposal were included. And he is denying it. Everything is written. We exchanged many text messages. I those messages It could be clearly seen that they are admitting their fault. Couple of times I was threatened by them unless I pay them full amount, they will not give my key back to me.
Since they know I am leaving for Switzerland, they tried to extort some more money from me.
