Can I just check how long ago this was?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, usually the same day. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. You can indeed try and use the recording as evidence but there is no guarantee that it will be accepted by the courts. As this is your own property you would not have needed to advise him in advance of the recording being made and whilst you can submit it as potential evidence, you have to appreciate that it is the court’s decision whether they allow it through. There are many circumstances when someone has made a recording, in one way or another, and wants to use it as evidence but whether that is allowed as admissible evidence is ultimately down to the courts. So all you can realistically do is put it forward to be used as evidence, but you have to allow the court to make a decision on whether it will be allowed or not.
Hi there, thank you for your further queries, which I will be happy to answer. You do not have to admit to the recording just yet and can always give him an accurate ‘recollection’ of the conversation before proceeding with a more accurate transcript, if needed. In other words, build it up slowly. If he asks for the recording, he would only be entitled to it if he can be personally identified from it. It depends on what is on it that may identify him, or his distinctive his voice is that people may recognise him form that alone. For the avoidance of doubt you should consider giving it to him because it won’t affect your position really, you still have the recording and it won’t change that, or its contents.

As you do not know what it is, then you can only be general with covering yourself for it. Something along the lines of:
I reserve the right to request additional compensation for any issues which appear in the future and which have been caused as a result of your work , negligent or otherwise.
Hi there, thanks for getting in touch, if you could please post a new query on that as it is not about the CCTV, which was the original topic on this question. Many thanks
