SAN FRANCISCO – A general building contractor alleges three invoices he submitted to a client for work on a San Francisco property were not paid.
Evans Sakani Wafula, doing business as E S Construction, filed a complaint on Dec. 31 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Christopher Collins and Does 1 to 10 alleging breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 12, 2017, the plaintiff entered into a written agreement with Collins for the performance of works of improvement to Collins' property for a total payment of $112,143.98. The plaintiff alleges they agreed to change orders requested by defendant with the project price increasing to $124,093.98.
The suit states due to complications with the project, the plaintiff incurred more costs. The suit states the plaintiff submitted invoices in December 2017, May 2018 and June 2018 that were not paid. The suit states Collins terminated the contract in September 2018.
The plaintiff holds Collins and Does 1 to 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to make payments on the invoices and breached the agreement by terminating the contract.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment to recover the contract damages in an amount of at least $94,979.98, plus prejudgment interest at the rate of 10 percent, attorneys' fees, costs of suit and any other relief that is deemed just and appropriate. He is represented by Peggy Chang and Margaret J. Allen of Beckman, Feller & Chang PC in Berkeley.
