Question DetailsAsked on 6/25/2012

What can we do about a contractor who is not meeting the terms of his contract?

We hired a contractor to remodel our kitchen. We signed a contract & paid a $10K deposit in April. Our contract states work is expected to begin in July & be completed in August. We have told him many times (in writing) that we need the job to be completed no later than 8/25; he said no problem. We have asked him repeatedly what we need to do to get materials ordered to complete the job on time. He refuses to provide a firm project schedule. He has become less and less responsive and never told us what he needed until this Saturday. We provided the information (cabinet finish selection) immediately and asked him when he would order the cabinets and begin work. He now tells us he can't guarantee the work to be finished on time. Can we terminate the contract and recover our deposit? We cannot have the work done after August. Do we have any options to get our money back so we can find an alternate contractor?
