Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Yes, it's certainly legal to do so. It might violate a contract that you have with the contractor, but the recourse would be by the contractor, not the government (which would enforce a law outlawing something). So yes, it's legal, and if your contract is silent as to it, you can certainly do it.

Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.

Please note that I don't get any credit for the time and effort that I spent on this answer unless and until you rate it positively (3 or more stars). Look for the stars on your screen (★★★★★). You may need to scroll left/right/up/down to see these stars, but note that the rating is what closes out this question, so it is necessary that you do so.

Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
