Tillamook, OR asked in Contracts for Oregon

Q: We hired renewal by anderson for windows. They never finished the job and sued us for payment. Do we have recourse.

When they called for us to renew financing my husband asked when they were going to finish the job. They hung up, canceled our financing, sued us because we have "enjoyed" the product and are garnishing my paycheck.

A: If they are garnishing your paycheck, then they already have a judgement against you which means that whether there was a breach of contract by them or if you have any defenses to the non-payment is most likely no longer relevant. Your time to argue why you shouldn't have to owe them would have been while the case was ongoing.
