i live in a condominimus in Ft Lee N J. I gave a NJ contractor
$16,050.00 as a deposit to renovate my 2 bathrooms. I never signed a contract and have a receipt. Permits, insurance docs were approved by the building
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: sorry i ended to quickly Permits were approved by the town and approved by my building admin office. When the Building superintendant told me that my renovation job would affect my downstairs neighbor
's apt - breaking a wall to replace the lead pan, i told him and my contractor that i did not want that responsibility. My contractor insisted that it was something that i had to do to replace the 50yr old bathtub and that she would talke care of it since she has been doing this for 40 years - the cost was included in her quote. On Aug 24, my contractor gutted the bathroom except for one wall. After the workers left, the building superintendant and building plumber came to inspect the job and told me that my contractor had to return to remove the other wall. My contractor complied with their request the following day. The Ft Lee building inspector approved the job. The problem ensued when my contractor refused to enter the downstairs apt stating that they did not have insurance to work in another apt and wanted approval from my buildng to do so. The superintendent did not acknowledge her request. I contactied Ft Lee plumbinge inspector who met with the building administrator and my contractor and reported back to me that the building would pay for the work in the downstairs apt and that i would have to pay for the permit ($65) Not comfortable with this report, i contact the building administrator who denied that she ever said that and that i was responsible for this.p ee reporand was told that was ehpa other i men
