Small claims fees will only be about $47.  And I can claim that fee back as well?
Generally no.
If you win.
Do you know that it works differently in NJ than the general rule?

generally worth it to just move on. you are going to sue for $400 after court fees and time its just not worth it.

Move to MA. Consumer protection laws FTW.  treble damages plus attorneys fees if they refuse to reasonably settle (or soemthign like that)

Doesn't hurt you, but you may consider threatening him with both of these things before you file. Perhaps he'll agree to avoid the headache.

So I spoke to NJ consumer affairs which said I can make a complaint but that if I file a small claims court action they will stop their investigation as they will not investigate if there is a pending small claims suit.  Looks like I can only do one at a time.  So which one should I file first? consumer fraud investigation or small claims case?  I guess it depends on the outcome of the NJ consumer fraud complaint as it can help me with a subsequent small claims case or if not a favorable  could potentially be used against me by my adversary in subsequent small claims suit??

anybody care to chime in

But then they might do this to others

Not sure how it's called in the professional world... :) Maybe tax laws?

It's $400 - it's yiddishe gelt, but your time is probably more precious! You've already spent time and mental energy on this.

I would say try NJ Consumer Affairs, it might, or might not get you somewhere. After that's done, make a quick decision if you want to go to small claims court (BTW - did you ever try to confront the place and just ask for your money back?, did you by any chance pay by Credit Card and have them help you fight?).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Don't you think filing a claim in SC and a complaint with the NJ consumer fraud division will make him less likely to repeat this action rather than just settling with him?

they wanted cash only.  My only reservation about the nj consumer affairs division is that if their investigation is inconclusive (i am not sure how the NJ investigator will be able to conclusively determine the leak is from the same exact location that they supposedly fixed) that might be used against me in a subsequent small claims court case?
