I had an oral contract to build my house. I paid this person assuming that he was in charge and that he would build the house. He is saying that his corporation built it not him. The contractor can say that the contract was with the proper business entity, while the home owner can say I contracted with the inappropriate business entity. Bottom line is that his paper work is ambiguous and my understanding is that my checks to him, the names he used on his invoices and payments to his vendors indicated that his corporation only got the permit. My fundamental question is: Didn't the contractor have the responsibility to keep his paperwork up to standards or is that just a minor issue? I have seen instances that using the wrong name for instance is held against them.
