    Default Contractor is Demanding More Money While in Breach of the Renovation Agreement

    My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Colorado

    I want to get the house rented again and seem to be at an impasse. As the title states, I believe the contractor owes me work. The contractor refuses to do any more work at this point and a lawyer I talked with advised me first to get the property rentable again based on the amounts, then pursue action against the first contractor

    A second contractor is saying he can't go in there until the first contract is completed. I

    I'm at an impasse and thank you in advance for your help.

    Find another contractor. The second one may feel that way but others will not.

    To clarify, then, are there any legal implications for a new contractor or for me by going ahead with a new contractor? Thank you.

    The current contractor could sue you, or assert a contractor's lien. If you're worried about that type of response, it would be sensible to have a more thorough conversation with the lawyer who is advising you.
