I paid first builder £2500 now his friend who took over wants on top of the £2400 I already paid him an extra £1250 as the jobs finished but he told me when I gave him the 2400.00 that was enough to finish the job but he said I'd have to pay him the 750.00 for the week his friend brought him in somehow now he wants £1250 . His friend got the money covering him coming.
1st builder was andy now his friend Mark who took over is demanding £1250 or he will smash work up I already paid him up front £2400 he did not buy the bricks he's threatening to smash up as andy got them out of the £2500 I paid him up front,andy took 4weeeks to clear just a garden before he got Mark in to help.Mark said if I don't pay he will take me to court.I only agreed to pay the week he helped andy out at £750 and no more, Mark said the £2400 was enough to finish job never said it was more ,got no bills or final bill just a text saying £1250
Yes that's when he texted asking for £1250 when it should only be the weeks money £750 we agreed on as I already had given him £2400,which he said was enough to finish it so I said no .I also said why should I pay for 4days of it when andy got him here and them two decided on £150 a day which andy had been given money to cover the garden blocks been laid. To me he was here for the first 4days helping andy out , I said of the £1250 extra he is asking for I will give him £650 only or at most £750 and not anymore I was only told the job would cost£4900 in all . When I asked Mark to take over the job we agreed only on a week's wage of 750 he said 2400 was enough to finish it , I gave him 2400 up front so to me I only owe him at most 750 and not 1250. When he started to threaten us I said if he want 1250 I will take 4days at150 off he worked for andy off so I will only give 650 now he keeps calling and texting threats of court .this will be costing me extra as it is I don't agree on the 500 difference he wants more.andy won't give me any of the 2500 he never use ,he is ignoring my calls and Mark won't ask him for any money because I took him on afterwards.
