Hi Jo C,
I don't know if this helps. I worked on the house up till the middle of May 2013. I went to do a contract of my own which was agreed with the other Soul trader at another property. I then went on holiday when I returned I was told by the soul trader the clients did'nt want me back on site as I was apparently rude to her. Basically I di'nt agree with her on a situation. My work has been pulled apart by other trades men and I have been told to pay to rectify it. Even though I was told not to come back to site. I have been given an opportunity to fix any of my own works.
So even though I did'nt receive direct payments from the Client I am still liable for my own works considering they have been interfered with by other trades and I have to pay to have them rectified or be sued as they keep threathning. I have still outstanding invoices they refuse to pay. So if I have all the work rectified and to their satisfaction if that can be achieved! Can they still sue me? can I still invoice them for all work then? They have also said they would be seeking compensation also?
The clients have made it quite clear I am not allowed to work at their home but they do allow me to come and look at what other trade men have done to my work or unearthing issues I was never aware of. But they still have the original soul trader I gave the estimate with still there and are paying for extra works. He has said he is putting in his time instead of cash but has still to give me invoices for the amounts demanded. I have now asked for them formerly and I await his response. I'm at my wits end. If I'm wrong I'll raise my hand but I'm been made out to be some cowboy, fraud. And that all the faults are down to me?? Which is not the case.
