What is the name of your state? California
My husband and I hired a contractor to due work in our house. We had a set of things he was to do for a set amount. As usual, the work went over in time, which we were OK with. We are reasonable and so long as he came to us with updates, we agreed. We had gotten no updates and on the day he was supposed to finish he called my husband and said they "are done" and proceeded to explain that they are out of money and whatever got finished that day was all they were doing and he expected final payment. My husband said he would be home at 7 and we would sit down and try to come to an amicable agreement. When we got home and went to check on his work he ran out saying he had to make a Home Depot run before they closed. My husband waited up until 11 for the guy to come back and talk to us. He never did. The contractor insists that we owe final payment and that every hour he continues to work, we owe more money. There is about two days worth of work left for them to do. So when he called my husband today at work telling him that we owe for every hour he stays, my husband told him to gather his stuff and leave. He threatened to put a lien on the house. My husband and I still want to sit down and talk with him, find out where the communication broke down and why we are being bombarded with threatening emails and messages instead of him coming back and talking with us. I ran home immediately to make sure he was getting his stuff together and leaving without wreaking some kind of havoc on our property. He wasn't there but his stuff still was. I do not want this man on our property. What do I do with his stuff if it is still there tonight when I get home?
