Help needed on this worrying problem....
About 4 years ago I took my car into a garage for repairs, and owner quoted me just over a month to complete the work, however the owner dragged his heels and cut a frustratingly long & painful story short it was 1 YEAR before I got the car back!
I paid part of the bill as the work was being carried out but because it took them so long to finish the work I told the owner I was not willing to pay the remainder when he delivered the car back - and he has not chased me for the money.
Now 4 years later I purchased some parts from the same owner over the phone with my credit card (I know, stupid me), but he has decided not to post the parts to me saying I owed him for the previous work.
My question is where do I stand legally on this matter?
1) not paying in full for work 4 years ago, and not willing to pay now.
2) garage refusing to send my parts until i pay for the previous work.
3) if garage used my credit card details (after my recent ordered ) to pay for the previous work without my consent.
Thanks for you help in advance.
