We recently had some construction (insurance) work done on our house. There was no signed contract or work order for the job; just an estimate and verbal agreement. The contractor did not do everything he said he would, created additional damage to our home and then charged us more than the estimate ($200 additional). We waited two months to pay the bill (to assess the damage he had done) and when we did, we only paid the original, estimated amount, not the full billed amount. On the check was written "paid in full". The contractor cashed the check and then put a lien on our house for the full, billed amount. How do we get the lien removed and do we have any recourse against the contractor?
