Attention : Mr. Laurier
Re: Contract with Macdonald Painting & Restoration. Dated January 5, 2000 and amended by way of an oral contract.
On January 5, 2000 you signed a detailed Contract with me outlining the work that was to be completed for $6000.00. In addition, in August 2000, you asked me to repair some damage that a moving company had created and to pressure wash the house. At that time I informed you that this additional work would cost $1400.00.
On or about January 5, 2000 you issued me a $2500 cheque as a deposit for the work to be completed on the home and garage at 321 Confederation Drive. There were problems with the work that was done. I corrected the problems you listed and on March 10, 2000 I notified you that there was $4900.00 due. This amount has not yet been paid.
I am considering starting a legal action in the Small Claims Division of the Provincial Court for debt. Such action could result in a judgment in the amount of $4900.00 plus all disbursements, costs, and interest.
I do not want to litigate and will forgo further action upon receipt of $4,900 in the form of a certified cheque or money order made payable to Mr. Macdonald and mailed to 12345 Macdonald Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6T 1Z1. Non-payment within 14 days of the receipt of this letter will result in the commencement of action without further notice. Correspondence should be directed to my attention at my office. If you have any questions or comments do not hesitate to call.
Mr. John A. Macdonald
