Am I missing a key part here in that your contract/s do not have a cancelation policy of some sort in place? Basically states what happens if canceled, when/if you can cancel, etc.? My attorney made sure I placed this in my contracts.

All the cancelation policy says is Contractor needs to provide 60 days notice of cancelation, the contractor will be held responsible for damages occuring because of his failure to provide proper termination.

The property manager contacted my lawyer friday and asked for an extension. Says he needs to hold a special board meeting tonight and will let us know tomorow

you only have a cancellation clause covering if you cancel it? That rite there gives customer (residential or commercial) a huge out! Personally I think its time your lawyer friend writes you a seasonal agreement/contract

"... hoping for the best,..." What does that mean? Are you expecting compensation for having equipment to do the job? ... being compensated for the work, even though they have somebody else hired? These would be good outcomes.

Or, are you expecting to regain your position as the hired contractor? If so, your working relationship would be strained, just a tad. Would you want to work under these conditions? Maybe so,... don't know.

I'm not saying you should or shouldn't go after them, as only you can answer that. But think about "should" you go after them and not just "can" you go after them.
and this is the reason that people try to screw us over all the time. i had a guy try to cheat me out of about 3K from an install job. he told me i had 2 choices,1.eat the loss or 2 take him to court, which i would win but he would smear my name all over town and i wouldnt be able to get any work. i did take him to court and won and i also found out that he does this to most contractors that work for him( he's a developer) he owes some of them over 100K.

when they do it enough it comes back to bite them i'm still getting work and he cant get any reputable contractors to work for him
