Thank you for your reply. I was not given a VAT invoice in the first instant. When he told me that an invoice would cost £150, I declined and when I asked him for receipts he refused to provide any so I have no paperwork - no contract etc.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.
Thanks for your rapid response. Just to be clear, are you advising me to pay the builder the £300 VAT to end this matter?
Nancy, thank you for your reply.I am not suggesting you pay the builder £300 to end the matter.I am suggesting you stay away from this builder and engage another builder to put right what is wrong (carry out the repairs).
Retain photographic evidence of what work is being repaired.
I hope this is helpful.
One last question, when I reported the threats to the police, they said that the builder could take me to the small claims court to get his £300 VAT. With no paperwork to speak of, it will be his word against mine. What could I do in a situation like that?
If you are happy and there are no more issues I will appreciate if you would kindly rate the service I provided to ensure I get credited for it.
Thank you for your advice.
Have a good evening.
Thank you Nancy..
Have a pleasant weekend.
