I am a home owner and consulted with an architect on whether or not to add on to our home. We agreed with a handshake to an initial concept for $1000. We never authorized the architect to move past concept since we still did not know if we could afford to do the project or if we should move. Now I am in collections with a 4850.00 invoice and the agreement he submitted to collections was not signed by any of us. What is my recourse?...Read More

We're a material supplier in California, our customer cancelled part of their order for a public project. Prior to them cancelling there was sufficient correspondence from us inquiring as to whether they needed a portion to be cancelled, notified them they would be liable for any costs incurred prior to them cancelling, and received official notice after certain costs were incurred for that part of the order. They are disputing the charges associated with that part of the order and indicated they'd only pay for what they are not disputing. Payment for the undisputed portion (that of what was delivered to the customer) has been received. The remaining part of the order remains at our location but we are left with over $7k in unpaid work. The prelim filed was for the full purchase order amount, but I don't think I can do anything about the remaining portion as it's still at our location. ...Read More

We are buying out a partner who was listed as a guarantor on two construction bonds. The projects are nearly finished, they total $2.4M in contract value, and we have been paid to date $2.0M. The Bonding company will relinquish the partners secured interest if we provide a $500,000 ISLOC. The other option is to re-issue the bonds, which is not likely to occur and considerably expensive. The remaining two partners are still secured parties on these bonds and such moving forward. Is this a good Idea? How does this negatively impact our business/credit?...Read More
