I am a sub contractor in pipe fitting. I used another sub contractor

Customer Question

I am a sub contractor in pipe fitting. I used another sub contractor to do a job for me 2 years ago and it has come up that the pipe work he installed wasn't installed at all and bits are missing. I'm waiting to hear back from the company that used me but I'm not sure what can happen to me. I have offered to put the job right?

Hello,

If you have offered to put the job right that is fine, you should wait to hear from them first and see what they want.

The companymay make a claim for damages against you if they incurred losses as a result of this issue but they would need to show what this loss was.

This is not a criminal matter so the police will not get involved.

May I help further?
