State licensing regulators have issued a cease-and-desist order and levied a $1,000 fine against a Provo man for contracting without a license.

James Clarence Quada had submitted a bid and accepted a down payment for a roofing job in July 1989, the order said. The customer refused to pay Quada any more until Quada provided a receipt for materials purchased with the down payment. Quada never produced a receipt and the customer eventually paid the supplier for the materials, the order said.Quada filed a lien and court action against the customer for payment, but both efforts failed because he wasn't a licensed contractor, the order said.
