I spoke with my Insurance company today. Basically they told me I was S.O.L. and that I should contact the contractors insurance company.
I figured. What the He!!. I called the people that made the mess and left a message with their secretary, that I needed their Insurance companies name and their policy number.
Well, that kind of poked the hornets nest, but who cares. Sometimes you got to poke the nest to kill all the hornets. LOL.
I was Amazed when the Z called me back.
Well I got to arguing with him for a while. Who's Fault is who's, and who is responsible, yada, yada, yada, BS.
He refused to give me his insurance info. He claimed he was licensed, but he refused to give me his contractors license. (I think, BY LAW you have to give that info out if someone asks you). He refused. He told me my lawyer can contact him or his lawyer for that info. I asked for his lawyers phone # and he wouldn't give it to me. He said my lawyer and his lawyer can handle it, then he said the insurance company can deal with it. He argued that he didn't need to be licensed, because I pulled the permit.
HE IS VERY WRONG ABOUT THAT.
What ever dude.
I asked if he had received the letter that was sent to him. He said NO. I don't believe him though.
He said he was waiting for me to contact him to resolve this situation. I CALL B.S. Because. He went on to say he wants to help me out by offering to tear out all the concrete in the spring, and refunding a portion of my money.
I told Z to put it in writing and I will look at it.
So, I guess I will talk to some more lawyers, and more contractors.
The reason I don't go all scorched earth just yet. LEVERAGE.
