Albany, NY asked in Real Estate Law and Construction Law for New York

Q: I had received a total of 50,000 in grant money to fix my house the contractor didn't finish. its been 8 years?

My daughter at the time was just little and since this so called work has been done she is being hospitalized at least once a year with respiratory issues. My son has headaches all the time so bad he gets sent home from school and is on medication for them. but in reality it’s the house and may be the house causing his anger issues, because the roof they were supposed to fix they were supposed to take all the nails out fix the bad spots and put screws in none of this was done all they did was paint over it and said they would be back to paint it again when weather got better the following spring, this never happen either so the 2 spots still leak and are still molded because they just painted over the mold the first time. They were supposed to take out the floor that has kerosene soaked in it under my kitchen cabinets right next to my stove. there exact word " if we try will will damage the cabinets and that's money out of our pocket" so left it.code enforces has not passed inspection
