My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Tennessee
I am a realtor my husband has a small company that does alot of work for my clients(relationship disclosed). We try to help people by subcontracting them to do some of the work for my clients. A Friend mine was hired to do a job that they never completed and they are now filling a suite against me for the amount deducted to have another sub finish one of the jobs and the amount deducted from another job that sold prior to fixing it. we tried to give them the difference of what was paid the other sub to finish and what wa deducted from them but they refused payment and are now suing me for the entire amount deducted on both jobs even though they refused to complete the work when given several opportunities. I even tried to settle with them paying them $500.00 for the job that sold and the remaining amount for the one that did not the refused that also. And today i got served by a process server. I do not think I should have to pay them for work not completed.The original sub contractor contacted the asset management company that manages the properties from another state and complained causing them to reassign my listings. These people have cost me over $40k in loss of contracts/commission. Due to this I lost 18 active listings, 3 premarketing listings over two years of hard work down the drain. When I was a prefered vendor for this company and recieved 2-3 new properties a month and sold the same if not more. My husband has lost over $3,000 in monthly income from these properties. What can I do about this suite? Do I have a valid counter for all that I have lost or should I just give in?? I have pictures of the incomplete work!!
