It will probably be money well spent to have a lawyer help you with this. It shouldn’t cost too much money but get a quote first. I know lawyers have a bad rap but they know the local laws and will possibly give you tips for dealing with customers and these contracts. A while back I decided to sell my house on my own, I called a lawyer, he gave me much advice, and it gave me a world of confidence.

From a customer viewpoint, I can tell you that there are many consumer agencies telling home owners like myself not to pay for anything until a job is complete. In this economy, there are many scams going on where contractors offer work, ask for a down payment, and then never return. Or, they’ll start the progress, collect a portion of a payment, and complete the job in a half-a$$ manner. One preventative solution I’m told, is to write the check to the contractor and the contractor’s supplier. I realize that this doesn’t really answer your question; however, my point was that a lawyer can help you out when dealing with consumers who want protection.
