Paid in Full
I hired a woman to paint my house and signed a contract. The contract was signed for x amount of dollars. Upon receiving a final bill the numbers were higher than quoted. We included a letter which detailed what we are paying and why. We wrote a check for the amount we felt we owed and included paid in full in the lower left hand of the check. This check was cashed the following morning. I received a phone call today from an attorney about the remainder of the balance. I thought if a check was cashed and it said paid in full, there can't be any grounds for pursuing additional funds?
