What to do about a bartering services contract?

The contract provides: “Payment will be applied as follows:Barter Services up to $1,000 per month, cash for any amount due to services not provided or Person B’s inability to provide bartering services”. I have asked Person A for a detailed outline which breaks down and details (in time spent) the services being provided to me, Person will not provide this information, so I have no way of knowing if we are bartering fairly. Am I still obligated to provide services if this person will not provide me with this information? According to this contract, are there a minimum amount of services to be bartered monthly?

Based upon what you have written about, if the person you have written about refuses to breakdown in terms of dollars and cents the amount of service srendered to date you have no idea of knowing if the services to be exchanged are fair and equal. Failure to provide such information amounts to a material breach of the contract.
