Hi Ben, no, he works for himself he has his own business, I am a customer.
Hi Ben just to note it did not copy all of my text and can email it.
Thanks for the above however, the guy that was putting in the frame cannot see what the problem is so there is nothing I can do, I am exasperated and sick of waiting for him this has been going on before Christmas, he did not start until Jan and have lost all confidence especially after getting 3 other contractors/builders to look at the door which have all indicated they will have to rip it all out and started again as he has not placed the frame near the brick, the gaps all around are so big. I have chosen a new contractor who is going to rip it all out which will damage the plastering my builder did free of charge to cover inside up. I would like to claim the £300 back as I have to buy the wood again as it will get damaged and the glass which will be what I have always asked for. what do I need to do to get this back.
thanks Ben, if I go to a small claims court what is the probability that I would get the £300 back, he has bought the wood which may come to roughly £150 and of course he is moaning he hasn't been paid his 3 days. I will not get him back after 3 quotes have all said it has to be ripped out and rebuilt so Im starting at square one.
the other problem I have is that I do not have his address nor any other details for him so how can I take him to a small claims court?
mmkmm ok, so would you suggest I just cut it loose and if he tries to claim any funds from me I could respond with photos and of course the essay txt I sent him. Its all quite frustrating, should I have gone with my gut feeling and not get him to start the job.
Exactly that is what I thought, I will leave it and cut my losses I think. Thanks Ben.
