There is a depreciation check coming from my insurance company after my house was reconstructed from a fire. I am confused about whether I owe the contractor this check. He says he is owed the depreciation check, is this true?

You owe him the amount of the contract between you and him (contractor). That could include all or some of the funds (both initial & holdback). In most cases, would need to give him the holdback amount. Unless you did certain work yourself and he credited you for those items.

Hi wgayle

Have you paid the contractor for the work that he has done? The check that you have from the insurance company is for the repair work on your home, true? If so, then the contractor must have his share from the check but only up to the amount that he deserves for the repair work. Get it endorsed and pay the contractor his money and you can keep the rest.
