I have a client who signed a contract, The work is completed, I have replaced all components listed in the approval paperwork.
Agreement/Contract states the homeowner was to pay in full the roof proceeds at the completion of build, the depreciation would be paid upon receiving the WPI8 and all supplement checks would be reimbursed to my company minus the Electrician Trade that they paid upfront. (Which I still have not received payment)
She has paid $7000 of the total claim approved $16,000, wants a detailed list of my cost, labor, materials, permit fees, you name it, and my profit. I do not feel I am obligated to give her these receipts, that would be like asking a mechanic to detail every nut and bolt he purchased, rather than just paying the bill they provided. Am I correct?
I am trying to go about this nicely to see if I can get a payment for the rest of the amount, before I make the next move.
I have two concerns - of course, that I will end up in the hole because of refusal to pay on the initial claim approved, check signed by mortgage, what is the next step, carefully to proceed to collect on this
My second is this.
I sent in my supplements, which totaled to another $8,000, the insurance will not release a check to my company for the supplement amount, it is going to the homeowner, which means that I am going to have another fight to collect the $8,000 minus the $1600 for electrician.
What do you suggest I do?
