  1. The list refers to mobile phone contract. I did contact the surveyor from 2013 but he has retired now. He said the Judge will likely ask us to get a joint report and if I get one now it will probably be dismissed by the judge. I wrote to the building company a couple of weeks ago and offered to pay the full invoice if they would confirm that they would return to complete all remedial works but they rejected my offer.
  2. I am filling in my defence form now. I am having a problem getting a quote to redo this work on the conservatory. I have had builders come to see the work and they won't touch it. They have said they wouldn't put their name to it. I had a double glazing company look at it and they gave me a quote. The quote is more than the amount that the building company that did the work are claiming. Before they have added the interest on. The price they charged was £6300, the quote for the work was £6,500. Can I counterclaim more than the original work cost? On the defence form I have said I deny I
  3. Thank you for that Slick it's very helpful. Does anyone know if I am able to submit emails (from the lead sheet association) giving me information regarding the lead work done on this job. Many Thanks.
  4. Sorry for delay in posting. I was going to contact the surveyor to ask him to do an update on the old survey but have been told to "hold fire" The building company have taken court action against us now and I understand the judge may want a jointly appointed surveyor to do a report . They are claiming £900 from me for interest over the two years. They have often taken two to three months to answer my letters and it's been a year since they said they would take me to court if I did not pay the full amount for this bodged work. They have refused to come back to rectify all of it, but are
  5. Hello, On all his correspondence under his name is Dip.SurvPrac Contracts Surveyor. The building firm we are in dispute with made out he was just a sub contractor when they were reported by Gas Safe to the HSE for unlawful gas work by an unregistered company. He wasn't a sub contractor he was an employee of this company, he had worked there for a few years, he was usually in the office and went out pricing the jobs up, ordering materials etc.
  6. Yes a carbon monoxide leak. This was done by the second firms Dip practice Surveyor, he came to do some of the work on the conservatory, he was incompetent and his work looks like a DIY job. He came to install the plastic paneling at the side of the conservatory above the window, the gas flue was extended through the side window of the conservatory so he dismantled the flue, made a hole through the paneling for the flue and reassembled it but did it incorrectly so the gas boiler fan was sucking in the fumes instead of blowing them out. We only discovered this that evening when the boiler stop
  7. The first company charged £4,500 for the installation of the conservatory doors windows and roof. We got a refund for this (section 75) First company's sub contractor £4000, we paid him seperately. This company that we are in dispute with quoted £6,300 to do remedial work and replace conservatory roof. The windows and doors were able to be reused. We had to get a report on the substandard work for the credit card company and it was this company we are in dispute with that did the report for it, their Dip Practice Surveyor did it. When we received the refund we asked them for a quo
  8. Thank you both for the reply. I am still waiting to hear back from the debt collector from six weeks ago. I have replied to the six demands and have told them I will be defending the case and counter claiming for my losses to date through their breach of contract and for the cost of getting another contractor to redo this work to a satisfactory standard. The letter from their solicitor said they would not be putting forward any proposal for mediation or arbitration as they don't believe they have done anything wrong. This all started in 2012 when we had the conservatory installed. The
  9. No I haven't paid anything yet, the agreement at the start of the job was payment on completion. I have offered to pay half now and the remaining amount when all the necessary works are done to complete the job to a satisfactory standard. They have refused this and are not returning but want full payment for "works carried out " otherwise court action and I will be liable for all their legal fees. The "works carried out " are substandard in need of refurbishment, expectation is many elements will need total replacement including the roof. They have breached their contract wit
  10. Two years ago we had a building company do some work for us on the conservatory, the company have a good reputation and are certainly not cheap. The work should have taken no more than a few days to complete. We were promised skilled tradesmen and good quality materials and we received neither. It was very clear to see the work was bodged and not as described, materials used were inappropriate not as described did not fit and were incorrectly installed. I complained many times but was ignored and told the work had been done to a high standard and the quality of materials
