Union, NJ asked in Products Liability, Construction Law, Consumer Law and Contracts for New Jersey

Q: how can i cancel with him over the phone and have proof of this . Will a phone conversation be tape and serve as proof?

On Friday December 1st i contracted a handyman to complete my Kitchen job he estimated that the total would be 3200 for the labor and that he needed 50% deposit so i gave him 1600 dollar and he patched up a couple holes in the wall with plaster and then stated that he will be back the next day which was Saturday. Today Saturday he calls and tell me he won't be able to make it and he's not sure about Monday, I'm alittle scare and have a feeling that i know where this is going. i look at the document that we signed and was looking for a license number and didn't see it at this point i realized that there is a possibility that this is one of those unlicensed worker. fast forwarding to my question i realized that the back of this so call contract states that i have till the 3rd business day to cancel since i suspect that he will not show on Monday i have till Tuesday to really solidify the cancellation.

A: You would ideally give him a copy by hand delivery, but voice and sending a mail cancellation will do.
