HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The state now confirms a handyman posing as a licensed contractor in North Alabama is not insured.
In a previous report, we told you about a Huntsville family who claims this man left their home in shambles and took more than $50,000 in the process.
A good solid year after the remodel job started on the Linnan family home, it's still sitting unfinished - and in some cases, the work was done incorrectly in the first place.
They blame it all on Johnny Ray Jordan, the owner of both All Aspects Home Remodeling & Bama Granite, Tile & More.
"Three contracts later, two down payments later, why can you not finish our house," said Susan Voce, who hired Jordan along with her mother.
They've learned he was working without insurance, meaning he had no license to even do the job.
Now, the family just wants their money back.
How was he able to pose as a licensed contractor without insurance?
He used a copy of a policy for $1 million in liability coverage he submitted under Bryan Insurance.
We checked out that policy, and within minutes, the state insurance department told us the insurance company no longer exists.
The City of Huntsville couldn't verify it either.
Which, again, means Jordan's license he had for Bama Granite is void.
When it comes to the work done under All Aspects Home remodeling, Jordan did indeed have a license and insurance.
However, City Inspector Randy Cunningham said Jordan was doing work his license didn't cover, like electrical and plumbing, and was warned to stop.
We spoke to Johnny Jordan by phone.
"Now, I talked to Mr. Cunningham, and he told me I couldn't hire electricians or plumbers. That will never happen; I'll never even try that again," said Jordan.
Jordan said he backed out of the job before any electrical or plumbing was ever touched; and if there was, then the family hired them on their own.
"We did not do any electrical or plumbing on her house," said Jordan.
Jordan's claim is denied by the Linnan family, saying his crew was in their home doing those jobs for months.
They initially found Jordan's company on Craigslist, and up to last week, All Aspects Remodeling still had postings for work outside of Jordan's license.
Voce said she will never use someone from Craigslist again.
SInce our story aired, the Linnan family has filed a police report against Jordan for theft by deception, and an investigator is now looking into the case.
We will keep you posted if official charges are ever filed.
