Contractor went Missing

1 Reply

Hello. Hired a contractor to rehab my home. he missed the completion deadline and kept saying “just give me 2 weeks”. He then said he underbid my home, and as a result he had to stop working on my home, to work other jobs in order to have money to pay his guys for my job. As of last Monday, I haven’t heard from him. He’s been ghosting me and I’m sure he peaced out. Fortunately I “bought right” so I’ll be good. BUT, what legal action can I take against him?

You could hire a lawyer to send him a letter threatening to sue him.

You could threaten to report him to the licensing board so he would lose his license. 

You could take him to small claims court. 

Good luck.
