I am sorry to hear this.

Have you told them you want to change your mind an cancel?

What does it say about cancellations on the quote?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No details in quote or timelines. We are under tight schedule to have work down and this contractor now tells me he cant' do it in our time frames. After I signed and gave deposit. Just signed yesterday.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

So are you able to say that after agreeing he changed the time line on you?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
after originally telling them the timeline i needed, then when signed the contract and gave a deposit I asked when he would be starting. He then said "in about a month. Bye" I just stood there shocked. I am now afraid because I gave him a deposit and definitely will not be even started within the timelines needed.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Then stop payment on the cheque.

You can to an agreement and as soon as you paid him he tried to change the terms unilaterally and without your consent.

If he dares to sue you then you will defend and simply state in court that after coming to an agreement he then told you he would not be starting for about one month.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
