I see. Thank you for clarifying that, Mamie.
Your case would normally be stronger if there were dates the services were to be provided, but since it has been more than 2 months and still no work has been done, that would typically be beyond any reasonable amount of time you should have to wait.
I would argue the contractor has breached the contract at this point, providing you with the right to terminate the agreement and demand a full refund.
If they do not agree to this, then I would send a certified letter demanding the refund to them and file a complaint with the BBB and state licensing authority if they are a licensed contractor.
Suit may be necessary in small claims court if the matter is not resolved through the BBB or state agency. Or you could retain a local attorney to pursue legal action against them.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
