I am in California and have filed a claim for payment through my contractors bond company and it has been over 60 days. I recently recieved notification that my claim was put on hold because they recently received additional claims against the same contractor. Why do I have to wait for them to answer my claim and pay me out against the bond? I hired a contractor to rebuild my patio and she received my $9,000 deposit and then died 2 days later and the family of the contractor is refusing to return my $9,000 deposit. It is simple and clear that my contractor has no intention of doing my project or returning my deposit. Why is the bond company refusing to pay me out? What should I do next?...Read More
