There is a para in their terms -
They have just sent me a spreadsheet of the extra work which I have not yet replied to. It lists out the extra work that has been done but a lot of this requires clarification as I am unsure what they are referring to. Also some items claim to be outside the specified work when they are actually mentioned so |I will be questioning some of the claims
Hi, Thank you. The other crucial point is did you actually "request" the extra work? I will prepare a full response now please do not be concerned if you do not hear from me right away. Kind regards AJ
No I did not actually request this work. The work is for a Website project which was going through its testing and I was providing feedback on corrections and other comments including feedback that required changes to the work including some work outside of the original specification.
However this work was just worked on and completed with no mention of the cost implications and how the bill for extra was going to be so big. I feel that i should have been told that what I was asking to be done was going to time-consuming and costly and do I really want to proceed etc
It just seems to me to be too easy for this supplier to simply keep working on what he consider extras and know the time and cost it is going to cost without any word to me before presenting me with the big bill
Not sure how you calculate the 250 hours and you have not said much I have not already worked out for myself really.
I do not yet know if there are any inconsistencies as I have yet to ask for clarification on a number of points
well he is actually claiming he worked an extra 111 hours at £100 per hour.
I am not sure what sort of proof a court would require but presumably he will be able to produce a time sheet and so having not actually been there whilst he did the work this would be hard to prove.
I will have to attempt to convince him to reconsider his costing which I know he will not - he's been going on about past courts cases where he has been successful etc and has suggested that if I start to question these costs he will find even more because he is being generous at the moment.
awkward and horrible
mmm I see I am going to have to see a solicitor
