Hello. I’m a small contractor in Toronto who did a job for a large condo company. It was an emergency job that needed urgent attention and, as such, the only “paper trail” I have is a series of emails between myself and the condo board (in which they agreed to have the work done and agreed to pay in full upon completion).
I did the work outlined in my scope of work and they were very happy with it. However… it has now been 42 days since the job was completed and they have not paid me. Furthermore, they have stopped taking or returning my phone calls. I’ve been very polite up until this point and am wondering if I have any legal recourse at all. Any advice would be appreciated.
