I hired a contractor to paint the interior of my house and I agreed to provide the paint, and all other supplies. I purchased 2 five gallon buckets of paint for the walls and then an additional five gallon bucket for the ceiling. 6 tubes of caulk and 6 rolls of tape, 6 paint roller covers and 10 paint trays.
My house is 1281 sq ft. He started on a Monday and when I met up with him on Saturday ALL ten gallons of paint were used and hardly any of the ceiling paint was touched. All the tape was used, none of covers or trays used. And only half of the caulk was used. Unfortunately he had only done ONE bedroom completely, the second bedroom was originally white and only had one coat and it was all streaky. The hallway was a disaster. The master bedroom had two coats but needed the trim to be completed. Then the dining area and kitchen were spotty and the living room was untouched. Now he is wanting $1980. The paint itself was over $400. I had to fire him as he had only done two things right. Patching the walls and caulking some of the baseboards, not even all of them. What are my rights?...Read More

I hired a pool company to build a Pool as well as landscaping. I had to sign separate contracts with the pool company and landscape company. It took over a year to complete the pool, and the landscaping is still a nightmare. To my knowledge, the landscaping company does not sub out work. If they do- they will not provide me with the subcontractors names.
The landscape company has an expired AZ CR-21 license and an active B4 license. They built a retainer wall, a large 16x14 paver patio and yard border, ran and installed sprinkler/ drip irrigation, laid saud and planted several plants. I am now having several issues and am trying to figure out my next steps.
Does the B4 general residential engineering license cover the work they performed? I'm having trouble finding a clear answer....Read More
I have a realtor who said they would do the designs on my property as I was renovating it and was planning to put it on the market. After getting through most of the renovations, which were already going to happen before I met here, I decided I did not want to sell the property and let the realtor know. I did sign a right to sell document with them. They then called me and said that I owe them for their design services and they usually charge $10,000 but they would only charge me $6,000. I was never told about these fees until then. I told them I would pay $1,500 because $6,000 seemed too steep. After messaging back and forth about this, as I want the conversations to be documented, they even said that they were not going to charge me if the house sold. So we both went into the situation with the understanding that there would not be a charge for the design services. Can they come after me for the $6,000? Also, I would never have agreed to have them do the designs if I would have known the fee because, like I mentioned above, I was already planning to do all of the work before I even met them. Thank you for your help with this matter....Read More
