Customer Question
the customer cancelled two days...
We have a breach of contract issue. We were hired to do a job, the customer cancelled two days before the start date. It was past the three days right of decision law. We retained the deposit as collateral for the material purchased and loss of income. The home owner is now trying to charge me with theft by contractor. I'm the owner of the company, but the company is LLC. in WI. I have tried to make it clear to the detective we didn't cancel the job and would still be willing to do the job. Can they charge me with this is my main concern?

The home owner, that signed the contract

Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 8 years ago
Then the homeowner by privity of contract can pursue the contractor and has no claim against you for the contractor's breach.

Ok, almost understand, sorry if I seem a little behinde here. So even though I'm the onwer of the company, and it is a llc. They can't charge me personaly for a crime, it would have to go against the company?
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 8 years ago
They would need evidence of your personal wrong doing so talking to them could only give them something to use against you.

I am the contractor. And to ignore the police I don't feel is the smart thing to do.
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 8 years ago
If the police want to speak to you, you should not do so without a lawyer speaking for you.
