Regarding Irish Electric Corp. mechanic's lien on my home I strongly dispute the statement my home and family were in no danger even though the electric heat in the kitchen was tripping the main breaker. I sent a letter with partial payment Feb. 2, 2016 to address this problem. It took over six weeks to be addressed and then only after many phone calls. And then fixed only after calling me at my vacation home yelling and screaming at me to promise to send him his money. At that time I told him I would send him some money when the air conditioners were installed as we had to request a higher grade wire and I am not confident that the breakers will not trip. At the time I should also be compensated for the time delay. The wiring began in March of 2014. Worked 2 hours in May, 2 hours in June then nothing done until October 2015.

Desired Settlement
Deduct from what I owe Irish Electric the amount I will need to hire another electrician to come in and fix all of the existing problems and finish the job.

Business Response
My client, Irish Electric Corp., is in receipt of the complaint lodged with the BBB by Ms. ***** ******. My client categorically denies any deficiencies in the work it performed for Ms. ******. Irish Electric's work was inspected and approved by the concord building inspector as meeting or exceeding all standards required by the relevant building codes. My client has made every effort to satisfy Ms. ******, this includes rectifying at no charge faulty electrical work that had been completed by an another electrician and for which my client had no responsibility.

At this time Ms. ****** owes my client $5,154.02. There is no basis for her asking Irish Electric to discount that bill.

However, my client is willing to resolve the matter as follows: By Monday June 20, 2016, Ms. ****** will provide a written punch list of items that she feels need to be addressed. My client will review that list. If Irish Electric deems completing the list to be a reasonable accommodation to resolve the matter, then we will advise Ms. ****** of that decision. Prior to Irish Electric commencing any work on the punch list, Ms. ****** will furnish full payment of the $5,154.02 to my office. I will hold these funds in escrow until Irish Electric completes the work set forth in the punch list. Once the work is completed and Ms. ****** authorizes me to, I will release the funds to my client. If there is any further dispute, I will hold the funds in escrow until the matter is resolved either by agreement of the parties or through litigation.

If Ms. ****** is not willing to resolve the matter in this way, my client intends to file suit to perfect its mechanic's lien on Ms. ******'s home.

We look forward to Ms. ******'s prompt response.
Very truly yours,

Attorney for Irish Electric Corp.
