    Are these sentences correct?

    As requested by the client, we have accepted all unfinished items from our joinery contractor for our resort project, and are being kept in our rented warehouse. 50% of the space is being used for these items so we can charge 50% of the rent which is amounted to $ XXXXX to this account.
    Note that what contractor is claiming in their delivery note about percentage of the work completion is not correct. All items are unfinished and 50 to 70% of the finishes were only completed.

    See above. I have underlined the word "finishes" in the final sentence because it might be correct and it might not. If you simply mean that only 50% to 70% of the work has been finished, then that's what you need to say. But a "finish" can be a noun and I can see how it might fit into building work so it could be that only a proportion of the finishes have been completed.
