Description:
I run a small student business and recently installed a product on a customer's house. Upon completion, the woman of the house came home, horrified by the look of the product that we installed. I explained to her that this is what the product looked like and her husband and I had agreed upon. At this point there was about one hour of work left and she told us not to waste our time finishing the job until she had decided what she wanted us to do ( she wanted us to paint the product another colour). The next day i called back to find out what the couple had decided. The man of the house, whom i originally had been hired by to install this product, told me that he to did not like the look of the product, and did not want it painted. Instead he said he was going to hire a different company to install a different product, and told me that he was not going to pay me. Earlier that day i had invoiced him, on the phone he told me he didn't care about my invoice and that he was not going to pay me and was in turn going to bill me for the cost of removing the product that this new company was charging him. What can I do?

if you have an agreement with the man for a purchase, sue him in court. IF it is only a verbal deal, you still have a chance but he might argue that your sale was conditional on his liking the product after installation. I think you will get at least part of your fee after sueing. There are different types of contracts and you have a bi-lateral one and you PERFORMED

I have read your problem. Well every contract needs a work to be done or not done and a consideration in return for that doing or not doing. In your case, you are honest and the other person in contract has breached the contract.I advice you to file a suit against him and demand for a compensation for the work you have done and the loss you suffered from this breach of contract including your cost of work and additional compensation for the breach. I think this will help you in some manner.
