Hi Guys , really short story. We are a decorating company , my customer wanted bathroom replacing so I located a plumber recommended to me to carry out the works. We quoted for the works to my customer but she paid the plumber direct for the deposit etc.Have they started a new contract once she paid him direct ? as I am in court in 30 mins to resolve the issues still outstanding once complete she will pay the bill. But the plumber has taken me to court not my customer.
