I have upfront paid money to a flat owner since he said he had no money in his hand to get the interiors done. He asked for a week time to get the flat ready and took specifications from me for the interiors to be done.
After one week, when I visited his flat to check the status, I've found that he did not get the interiors done as promised. When asked about that, he responded saying "move into the flat in the present condition or else take advance and go".
Surprised by his harsh response, I have asked him to pay back the money for which he asked one week time. It is 45 days since then but still I have not got my money back. He
now says that he needs to get a tenant to his flat to pay back my money. The worst part which I have realized in the last week is
that his apartment complex does not even have a power supply because of his internal conflicts with the builder of the apartment. So, I doubt if any one joins his flat soon. Can any one suggest the options for me to get back my money? All I have as proof is the bank statement (cheque) for the money paid.
