Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is the cost of the job please?
Does he accept the adhesive was poor?
You dont have to.
If he brings a claim against you, he must show the tiles were defective.
If you get a bill for £4000 does not mean you have to pay it.
And yes if it went to Court and IF you lost then you could pay monthly
Does that help?
Well monthly payments is a matter for the Judge.
You would be required to pay costs if you lost yes. But in reality its a small claim so costs are fixed and limited.
No, you wont get legal aid - its a small claim. No one gets legal aid for that as legal costs are not recoverable only the court fees to issue and hear the claim
