Signed a contract to have two bathrooms remodeled. We paid a $1K deposit and a subsequent $1K payment after the first week of work out of the contract total of $6100. A few days after that payment, the (subcontractor) carpenters, who had done almost all of the work accomplished to date, packed up all their equipment and left. Since then, communications with the contractor have been daily texts and/or phone calls asking about his schedule, his promise to be here the next day, and then repeat when he doesn't show up. Yesterday we received an invoice from the subcontractor asking for direct payment since he hasn't been paid by the contractor in a month, with a notification that should we not pay he will place a lien on the house. His invoice is for $4400.
