Hello Andy my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What is it you want to achieve please?
Who did you pay, the builder?
Were you going to pay the plumber direct for additional works?
If the radiators are on the contract then clearly they are included. It can't be an extra as its in the contract!
If there was no prior authorisation and a cost clearly agreed then again it cant be claimed.
Everything must be in writing or agreed. If it was not then it can not be claimed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Usually these matters are dealt with at the Crown Court. If you look at the sentencing guidelines Magistrates at page 197 it is only where it is a category 3 that is dealt with in the Magistrates Court.
You can download or view it online at:
http://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/offences/item/inflicting-grievous-bodily-harm-unlawful-wounding-raciallyreligiously-aggravated-gbhunlawful-wounding/That is lower culpability and lesser harm. In reality even then it would be a High level community order to sending to the Crown Court.
I cant see whether it falls into cat 3, but you will know this.
But I think its going to be unlikely that it would be kept in the Magistrates Court.
No because I think they are one and the same.
You should offer then sums you think are owing to the builder in writing, if he rejects you can use this should matters go forward.
Can I clarify anything else?
No templates exist online as such - but you could also consider mediation,
This may settle doing that as most do, it may prevent this going to Court and resolve the matter
Does that clarify?
