i rehabed a house and the plumber did some work directly for me and work thru a contractor working on the house. I paid contractor directly who billed plumber hours when work was done thru him (they were friends) No contract ever written up. Then got a bill from plumber for twice as much as work done for me. I asked for the labor hours and he never produced. As well never gave me a written contract for work on the house. I was then taken to court but was unaware so did not make the court date so obviously I was now on the hook for the full amount. I have been disputing w/ plumber and his lawyer to try and clear up, but the bill keeps increasing and 10%. There are some more details but not enough characters, but this is basic overview. Thank you. very stressed about this .
