With the amount of money that was paid in cash appear on your bank account coming out for that specific payment? How much money are we talking about here?
Are you saying you paid him money and now it’s going to cost you more money to this right?
The usual way of dealing with this would be for you to get the work corrected and then to sue the contractor for the cost of putting the work right .
The contract has done some work, albeit badly and therefore is entitled to keep some of the money although, if it costs more to put this right than you paid, he is liable to pay you the full amount even if that is more than you paid him.
Provided you have some proof that the will large withdrawals in cash which were not common during the course of the conduct of your account, I would not worry about the fact you do not have a receipt. The court will decide the issue on the balance of probabilities and with large withdrawals of cash being made from the bank at the time the builder presented his Bill to you, the court is likely to conclude that this money was to pay that bill in whole or in part.
Can I clarify any points arising from this?
