We owe him money, but it is less than the value of the services left to complete. The "contract" simply says INVOICE and only my signature is on it. (I realize this was my fault for "just trusting" him) Additionally it's in violation of almost every requirement listed in CA BCP Code 7159. I do not want him to continue to do work, I do not want to pay him anymore money and I'd like the balance of the money that he already has for services that have not been rendered. I also believe he is co-mingling funds and using our funds to pay for a current project hence the slow down in our renovation. How can I prove this? Can I legally ask anything of him to prove our payments have been set aside for our project solely?
