Issues with a contractor who caused damage to my home
I hired a contractor who than hired a subcontractor to do work on my home in the area of installing hurricane impact windows that unfortunately weren't installed correctly. We had last January of 2014 23 inches of rain that fell over night and water came in through the windows that weren't caulked properly and caused $20K in mold damages alone. After receiving mold reports and demolition and reconstruction reports I was told I could not stay in my home while the work is being done due to not being able to have access to any bathrooms, any bedrooms or a kitchen. I am going back and forth with opposing council who insists I can stay in my home even though I told him there is no room for me to stay at all as the only room left is going to be stockpiled with my furniture from all the other affected rooms. Does anyone know of a statute for Florida that I can refer to to show one is not allowed to stay in a residence without having any access to bathrooms, bedrooms and or a kitchen?
