Does a verbal contract have any legal rights?

IndianaChange Orders

I am an Electrician. The customer wanted to do the work. The work went from 6 feeder terminations to 6 terminations plus a new swimming pool. After the rough inspection the inspector wants a final on the swimming pool. This requires more work and trips for the job. When I let someone o their own work it is a minimum of 3 trips, i charge $50 a trip. Customer said he was ready for inspection I inspected and he was'nt ready requiring return trip plus trip for final if he's got it right. He's replying to emails or text messages. what can i do?

Give my office a call for a free consult. I need some more information on the case. Typically, any home improvement of more than $150 requires a Home Improvement Contract Act compliant contract, which could be problematic for you. That act also has other requirements governing a contractor/consumer relationship, such as pulling necessary permitting and obtaining proper licensure. Best, Nick (Podlaski LLP 260-782-1712)

I pulled a permit, I carry a license and insurance. the permit is the hard part. The inspector wants a final inspection on the pool. I don't know what they will have to say? They could make me finish whether I get paid or not? Suspend my license? I don't know nor do I want to find out.
