Hello

Welcome to JA.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.

Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.

The Consumers Rights Act states that a reasonable charge will be used in default of an agreed price.

What is reasonable is based on the industry standards and prices.

Do you understand what I have stated so far if yes I will proceed to discuss the next step?
