Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Your first step is contacting your CO Attorney General Consumer Complaints office: https://coag.gov/file-complaint

Second, you can contact DORA, which is the agency that licenses contractors and make a complaint against the contractor: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/dora/dpo

If those two entities cannot negotiate a resolution, then you can get a local attorney through your senior center or legal aid and they can sue for breach of contract on your behalf.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank 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.
