Probably not, but you can go after his bond. Find out what company has underwritten his performance bond and see what it will take to get payment from that route. If he doesn't have a bond you might try state division of business regulation or whatever it's called where you live. If he doesn't have a bond AND isn't licensed, you might just be out. At least you can take him to court for fraud AND sue for damages. Fraud is criminal court, damages will be civil court.

How do you get your mortgage company to endorse an insurance check if your house is in foreclosure?

I would hope they wouldn't! If your house is being taken away because you are not paing them back, they are owed the money, not you. A bank would not assist in that theft of money. I would believe that there would be criminal issues involved if you cashed that check anyway. Their name is on the check for a reason, they are protecting their money that is not being paid back.
