Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
When you have entered into a contract for work and materials, where the main focus is labour and skill, the law says that the work must be:
In addition, any materials provided as part of the work must:
If there are problems with the standard of work, or the materials used, you will have certain rights.
If work has already started, and there has been some breach of contract by the other side, you would usually be expected to give them the opportunity to rectify the problem. However, if you can justify why they should not be given such an opportunity, for example, if work has been left in a dangerous condition or their work is obviously below-par, you could refuse to do so.
In terms of potential compensation, you may be entitled to that in the following circumstances:
In order to resolve any problems that have arisen, it is generally accepted that you follow these steps:
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
ok, in my letter I gave him 14 days to respond. I told him that he had broken his contract with me by doing such a poor job. I have already had another person in who said it will cost more than £1000 to rectify to a reasonable standard. The original tradesman is not a member of a trade association. I think my idea of asking him to come and at least look (he has refused so far) with a third party there (I have been left in a vulnerable position with the blog on the internet) and then suggest because of the situation we are in due to him voicing his opinions of me online and showing photographs of my home which I had no idea he had, that I do not wish him to do put the kitchen right. I will then not seek any compensation if we can sort it out amicably between ourselves, however, should he not want this I will then seek compensation for the internet photographs too. Thank you very much for your help, it has been very useful :-)
you are most welcome, hope you get to resolve this
so do I! nightmare times... I am a widow and this was bantered all over the internet too, asking other tradesmen if they wanted a date with me :-( I hope this can be sorted soon, this man is a neighbour too :-( thank you
makes it that bit more awkward but does not change your legal rights at least
