I am trying not to have him come back to my house and threaten me.
How do I do that?
Do you have a contract with him?
I t was a verbal contract. He has over 25 pieces of moulding that is sitting in my living room on the floor that had to be put in. Further more he had taken out the old crwon and base mouldings and left it bare. My house looks very unfinished.
The only option you have would be to sue him for specific performance of a verbal contract (which is a little bit of a stretch).
Your best bet would be to try to get this resolved with him amicably. That would be the fastest and most efficient way to get the work done and move on. If not, you will likely need to sue him which would be a long process and, ultimately, you may end up needed to hire another contractor to finish the work anyway.
I know, not the answer you want to hear, but it's all you can do in your situation.
