Before buying my home in central VA, I asked the contracter to include some extra features I wanted him to add to the house in the selling price. Both he and the realtor understood that buying the house was contigent upon having these extra features. He agreed, submitted a bid for my approval, and then the cost of the extra work to be done was added to the selling price. I closed on the house on 6/30/00 and he was paid up front for the work. He still hasn't done any of the work. Is this fraud? What kind of recourse do I have? Should I file a criminal complaint? The house was purchased with an FHA loan. Does this make a difference?
