Thank you for your answer and guidance on this matter.
would it be possible to for me to give you a little more info on my situation , for your opinion on what side the law would fall on
i responded to said customers first letter and called at his property to discuss the matter in hand , and was met with a hostile response.
customer did let me in to see the said damage , i recorded the conversation regarding paint damage and the verbal contract agreed.
the customer would not let me wipe down a few marks that were left with a water based paint and can easily removed with a damp clothe, which i did mention to customer , there was no physical damage to any furniture and he then asked me to leave his property.
dose my recorded conversation stand in the courts as he was not willing to co operate to his first letter requirements?
Many thanks for your advice
