the invoices are addressed to the customer at his uk address.
he has said that due to delays (nothing to do with us...his flat was water damaged and it was discovered that further damage necessitated extra structural work) he also said that he thought we had been paid enough and made enough profit on the job...(almost his exact words in an email)
note: the insured element was signed off....the other additional works were not part of the practical completion certificate. he has retained funds paid by the insurers due to us.
if we are to enforce against the uk property what does that mean...how do we get the funds...selling his flat? that is complicated as he has rented it out.
lastly as we are in contact with him can I tell him that this is what we will seek to do as a means of making him make the payment?
thanks for the response.
we have proof of acceptance of completion based on a copy of the practical completion certificate that is signed off by the surveyor. on it it clearly states that the client is satisfied with the work. this document was then passed to the loss adjuster so that the final payment could be made.
our final question is simply that given that the client is currently in Australia. I am concerned that the court would say that the 14 day response period was insufficient.
nothwithstanding all that we will proceed anyway.
