Did they cash the check? (if not, can cancel it)
Note, that in most states, even if you don't have a time on the contract, there is a "reasonable amount of time" implicit in any contract (usually
based on an industry standard).
As for doing work with no money down, that seems to be too much to expect I'd wager. I mean, what's a contractor going to do with tiles he ordered
for a specific customer, for example? Pay to store them in case another wants them eventually? No, that's an unrealistic expectation.
Expecting money down isn't really a red flag here, as long as it's for materials. It shouldn't be though, for labor.
I'm not a lawyer, but have had some contract law, so don't take my advice as anything other than just that, not any kind of professional legal
