Based upon your description of what happened it sounds like you have good reason to ask the builder for a statement of the work done, and then pay the builder some reasonable amount (especially for materials) and cancel the contract IN WRITING. However, before you do that you might want to look...Read more »

I believe negotiations of filing/not filing a complaint with the State Bar is not an option.....but is it legal to negotiate a settlement vs. reporting to law enforcement if that appears to be the only way to get financial compensation from being wronged?

For almost every crime there is a civil counterpart; just ask O.J. Simpson. As far as I know, there is no sanction for demanding compensation, or you will file...Read more »

IF this seller refuses to "do the right thing" you should take her to small claims court, that judgment, when you (hopefully) win,...Read more »
