I was hired as a subcontractor to do some repairs on a home that is bank-owned to prepare it to sell. I do not have a signed contract. I do have the original quote, although it was never signed. The construction company that hired me has not made any payments for this project. I have worked for them in the past and they have paid. If I calculate all my labor and materials invested in the project, it amounts to $9,500. I have told them I will settle for $5,000, but still have not received anything.
