Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you have a contract with the sub contractor at all saying its a fixed price please?
And I assume he agreed and started as a result?
Ok. If it was fixed, you text and it was accepted then he can NOT claim any further fees.
If he has issued a county court claim you can seek a counter claim on the basis you lost contract because of his appalling behaviour.
However any claim below £10,000 will be a small claim and you only need to pay an issue fee, nothing more.
But if he is claiming against you, its worth putting in a counter claim
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You lost the job. You have not been paid. That is because of the negligence of the sub contractor.
Does that clarify?
Yes you can, or loss of profit.
Just that you wish to claim for the loss of £xxxx resulting from the breach of contract by the Claimant
Does that help?
