Legal Question

Asked on: 1/30/12, 9:26 am

We hired a contractor who said he was licensed and insured. He began the work and has yet to finish it. It has been 2 months since he last worked. He left a mess, including leaking windows that have since ruined the carpet in 2 rooms and the drywall as well. He has been paid the full amount of the first contract but has not completed the work, he came across additional problems but never wrote up contracts and completed the work without our consent. We recently gave him 7 days to complete the job, and he has not. What is our next step. He has taken $10,750, and has worked a total of 37.5 hours on our home. Should we go civil or criminal, we have no money left.....
