This is in California.
We signed a contract with a contractor who claimed "licensed and bonded" for a backyard job. During the project, contractor asked us to pay directly for the cost for concrete, and we did.
Contractor finished work generally well, and we made final payment. But We forgot to deduct the material cost we already paid directly for the concrete expense.
Now we are asking the contractor to return the excess payment, but he initially agreed, and then refused to make the payment saying that "I'm losing money on this project".
We then did some research and it turns out this company only has a business license in the City, not a valid CSLB license.
So what should we do ? File complain/claim with BBB, CSLB, police, or small claim court?
