    Question contractor does not want to come bak and finish the job he has been paidfor.

    In Feb. 2011 we purchased a property and hired contractor to rehabilitate it to two units.
    He went and got the construction permit and starts the work, most of the bones of the work were paid by the schedule he had set per contract, and in august the inspector told us we cannot have 2 units because of the septic tank capacity!! And stop the work.
    After many visits and contact we said ok we transfer it back to one unit, and they removed the stop work order in Feb. 2012.
    I have made dozens of calls and emails to the contractor and he has not returned any of them. Finally I had to send a registered mail with signature request, he refused the letter.
    Yesterday I filed a complaint with Pennsylvania attorney general.
    My question is what action should I take while I am waiting, if any?
    The property is in south center township, in Columbia county Bloomsburg, pa. 17815.
    Thanks
    Mike.

    You can sue him in court and hire another contractor to complete the job.
