Get Refund from Contractor
March 27, 2014 6:18 AM Subscribe
I've asked pest guys to remove some animals from my house.
I want to cancel the sealing of the house and ask for a refund of the 'sealing fee', which they have not started on doing. How should I go about doing this?

I'm not huge fans of them and the price I paid for sealing, after talking to contractors, is way too high. I did ALREADY pay for removal AND 'sealing' up the house. They quoted me removal fee and a sealing fee. I stupidly prepaid (with square/credit card) both together (so a chargeback is possible?). The removal fee was $250 and the sealing fee was $860.
They're in the midst of 'removal', but haven't started up on sealing. (We still can hear the animals in our attic, so not entirely gone, but we can deal with that-- I'd be ok with just eating the $250).
This is sort of confrontation that am not used to dealing with (note, we haven't been miffed by their side yet, I'm assuming pressure and guilting tactics). This is definitely a mom and pop shop (it's two guys who have a website). The only contract is an unsigned invoice, my payment and handshake. My fiancee is a lawyer so we can certainly deal with anything legal, but of course rather not get into that.
