So I hired a builder to build my home. I paid him his rate to oversee the job. As invoices came in from his different accounts such as lumber and different materials he had me pay his invoices. 5+ months ago we had a well installed. Our builder is now calling us to tell us that that invoice has not been paid. And actually as of today we have still not received an invoice. What are our options?
It sounds like you owe for the service provided, but it also sounds like the amount may be in question. Is the price of the well spelled out anywhere such as in your contract or perhaps in a construction budget that was provided by the contractor prior to the job? If not, the contractor needs to provide you an invoice or something in writing that reflects the amount due for the well. Don't forget to obtain a final lien release upon payment.
