Q.House construction & renovation
We gave contract to construct 2nd floor & some renovation work to local contractor .
We had nothing in written .
He just given us quoatation estimated figure initially.
He has taken much more time to finish the assigned work ., & After that he is demanding more money than he made actual work done .
Note :- he hasn't made many things which were coming in his work ( poor plumbing + doors + windows +ladders ) , & which ever work he had done is of very poor quality & low grade than he is charging amount .

Now he has sent us legal notice thru advocate & demanding money as per initial quotation .
Note :- ( out of 100% we constructed only80% from him , & still he is demanding for full work )

My question is , does he take any legal actions with out any signed physical paper contract agreement made initially ?
As we had made his full payment towards actual work done by him .( Payment done 50% by chq & 50% cash - he hasn't given any receipt but we have telephonic recording of cash payment done )
Is telephonic recording is a valid proof ?

Question 2 :- i want to take refund from him for the low quality work he made & i had to spent more money for faulty & very poor work he has done .

Many things which he supposed to do , he hasn't done as per it due to that we had to bare the remaining work he stopped to do .
Plus we had to make up for faulty & unsatisfactory work he done .

PL. Give advice regarding this matter
Do I need to reply back on his notice , or without any signed proof he can not do anything ?
Can I go to consumer court to complain about cheating ??

A. ) Not only reply to the Notice but deny all allegations and demands made by him if all is true as per your version. Additionally you must put forth your straight position about payments, cash and cheque, it's acceptance, faulty and shoddy and incomplete work done by the Contractor.

We haven't signed any paper of work agreement .it was given by just verbal communication & initially he had given me rough estimated quotation for 600 sqft work out of which he did only 420 sqft wrok & still he is demanding for whole 600 sqft work .

For faulty & low quality work we have room photographs ( water leak from walls , slab & terrace )

& We paid him 50% by chq + net banking
50% cash ( Atm withdrawal statement 10-20 k per day ) + telephonic recording that he accepted cash payment
