Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. What is she threatening court proceedings for? Has she mentioned a section from SOGA 1979?
How much money are you owed assuming you can get a refund for the materials? Do you have any proof in writing that she accepted the flooring?
aprox £6000. i have nothing in writing from her accepting the floor, only it was delivered by me. checked by her agaist the sample upon delivery. 22 boxes left in her hall was acclimatising for a week.
Hi, Thank you. Firstly you do have an obligation to try and mitigate your loss as far as possible. If that means returning the goods then so be it. She cannot force you to carry out £11,000 worth of work for free just because she has decided that she does not like the floor. With that in mind how would you like to proceed? Do you want to pursue her for all the monies owed?
no i don't, i just want her to accept the fact that I'm waiting for the refund. and when i get it she's welcome to it. ill happy to carry the loss of fitting for one day.
she has had another quote and wants to use the money she was going to pay me with to, tp pay them. however they are a lot more than i was. so she wants me to pay the difference.
Hi, I have to go off line briefly, I will be back later this evening. In the mean time I will switch this to Q&A mode so you can respond with out a time limit, and I can type a full response. Can you just confirm exactly what allegations she has made in relation to the Sale of Goods Act 1979? Thank you AJ
the total cost she has outlaid so far is £7700. this is for materials only. (£7100 for the floor and £645 for underlay)
she wants to keep the flooring laid in the loft and pay the new fitters to finish it. Which is just new skirting, door bars, and trimmings. which is what i was doing.
maybe i should add, there was no one home the day i fitted the loft conversion and it wasn't till 10pm that night she returned home. and text that it wasn't what she ordered. (however she wants to keep it!!)
all i need to know is. will it go to court? i have worked out with all materials used so far with labour, and skip hire ect its
£7745 paid for materials
less £3872.29 used and fitted is £3872.71 her refund cost is apron £4700
i have offer to finish to job, she dosnt want me back. i still have the remaining flooring, awaiting refund.
thank you for your help
