DO NOT LET HIM REBUILD THE ENGINE.
Was it running when you took it to him only with a slight tick? If so, the engine didn't seize unless he ran it for an extended period of time without oil pressure. If that is the case, he, being a mechanic, should have known it would seize and should be responsible for the damage.
Find the vehicle before he does cause a problem and get a second opinion.
Let me know what you find. I really want to help you with this. I hate when people try to take advantage of others.
