Did you talk with your agent and him to the sellers agent? Money actually should have been held out at the closing by the title company in order to be sure the work was completed. But its too late now.

depending on the cost... under a couple thousand you will be alright in small claims court. Alittle heads up .. you could have had the seller put money in escrow for the cell and this way you could have ordered it if he did not, than you would had to give the bill to the closing company and they would have paid it. Usualy they put 1 1/2 time of the estimate in escrow and the seller would have received the surplus after the bill was paid.
