Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Have you already responded to his recent attempt of contacting you?
OK, thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you in a short while. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not responded to this message as it will just push your questions to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
I have looked into your query in more detail but unfortunately as you appear to be in Scotland it is not something I can assist with. I will therefore ‘opt out’ and a colleague better placed to deal with the nature of your query should hopefully pick this up soon. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thank you
I am a solicitor in Scotland. In my opinion the builder is personally liable for your losses here. The measure of your loss is the total amount paid by you to him and to the builder that finished the job less the original contract price. He has of course exposed himself by trying to collect on Linked In. I would accep his request, find out as much as you can about him and raise court proceedings via your solicitor as quickly as you can. If the company went into liquidation before he started your contract then the company is irrelevant and he would become personally liable, certainly from the information you have given me. Happy to discuss. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
