The question was simple. It just needed yes or no

I am not satisfied with your answer. At least an explanation

would have helped.

Please refund my money

Its not actually as straight forward as you suggest for a number of legal reasons
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

this is a family trust involving one property set up to avoid death duties

There are five children and the two eldest are trustees

All 5 children are beneficiaries

One sibling, the electrician, has done repairs to the entrusted property

and wishes to know if he can charge the Trust for his services. He is fully qualified and insured and pays all due taxes on earnings

I shall be grateful for a reply. I cannot simplify it further

Happy to help but you have rated me negative - please change rating and then I can deal immediately
That makes perfect sense thank you. He can only charge what would be a reasonable sum to do the job (the going rate basically) and on the basis that the work was instructed by the two trustees.
my pleasure
