the contract specifically states that if a dispute arises under this agreement, the parties agree tofirst trytoresolve thedispute with thehelp of a mutually agreed-upon mediator in harris county.
Then it goes on to say that if this fail,the parties agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration.
then it states that the complaining party may refuse to submit thedispute to mediation or arbitration and instead bring an action in an appropriate small claims court.
this contractor is not returning my calls nor has he returned to the work site. the money that he has received is far greater than a small claim. What are my possible options for handling this situation? i have taken photos of the unfinished work and the mess he created. i have also located someone who he has done this same thing to.
