THANK YOU FAT WALLET. Seriously. Thank you ALL. I had to go through and thank each of you individually.
Here is the update and answers to mostly everyones questions....
I worked with Home Depot over the last week and I told them exactly like you all said to do. I asked for the quote in written where it said $1500. No quote appeared. At that point....Home Depot said I was on the hook for $827. End of story. I ended up getting 6 months no interest on my card. The "Pound the sand" strategy sounded wild and crazy a week back but today it all made sense. So what did I learn?
1) Always get quotes in writing. 2) Don't let emotions get the best of you. 3) Always brief the tenant about working being done and never to have them sign anything. 4) Contractors will screw you. Your job is not to get screwed. 5) Fat Wallet isn't just a message board. It's a family. It's a way of life.
THANK YOU ALL. Green for everyone. Saved me $700 in real cash.
