  1. Anybody? Any thoughts / ideas / experience recovering debts under a JCT contract?
  2. Hi - the previous post is part of the same house, that was in relation to a staircase and a very dodgy steel fabricator that has now gone into liquidation. This post is regarding the main contractor. It was partly down to the main contractor that the stairs were delayed. Re this post - we are stuck regarding how to best to proceed. Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Kind regards,
  3. Hello, We employed a contractor to run a building project. Fast forward three years - they went over time, over budget and now owe us money. Contract details as follows: JCT Intermediate Building Contract 2016 Contract signed early 2017 Work commenced early 2017, due to complete end 2017 The contractor is a sole trader, not a LTD We have finally (just) finished after almost 3 years. Due to the overrun, contractor over-spending, some dubious valuations by the contractor, the need to pay for some contracts /
  4. Hi - just following up on my question. If one has a specification and agreed price for some work and at the end is told there is extra to pay for whatever reason, is there anything that says you need to be told in advance? I assume there must be, otherwise people will just charge whatever they want. Or, is this all covered in section 51?
  5. They have installed the main structure (steel) and roughly installed the balastrades. They still need to clad the treads in timber, add hand rails and finish the glass. Mostly by email.
  6. Does anybody know of there is a need or right to have been given a heads up of possible price increases before work is conducted? We have paid the full agreed installation cost but have only received 70% of the agreed work to date. We are now being asked to pay an extra 25% on top of the agreed amount for the work that is complete (so, we will have paid 125% for 70% work). This extra has never been requested or discussed. But, they are saying they will not return or finish work until the new balance is settled (new balance being the requested extra to cover the work already compl
  7. We have a separate / specific specification and cost for the stairs from the stair fabricator. It is not lumped in with broader works.
  8. Nothing changed in the design. In total, the extras are c.25% on top of the agreed cost. About 5% of this is due to delays - increased labour and material prices. This is tolerable as there was a delay of 12 months from paying to installing. The other 20% is for additional costs due to: his cost increasing because he moved premises installation difficulties (although, nothing changed from spec or areas being installed in) other random reasons that have no bearing on reality

  10. This is in relation to another post regarding stair work caried out by a steel fabricator. We have paid the fabricator in full for the entire staircase although the work is far from complete. The fabricator is asking for additional money for work that has already been undertaken. He is asking for an additional £1500 for design drawings and an additional £2500 for additional installation costs, plus other costs in relation to increases in material costs. In no case have we made aware there would be any additional cost and we did not agree to any additional cost. However, he is s
  11. Just one final question. We will write to ask for a detailed breakdown of the costs and increase. In the fabricators last email, he attached T&Cs (part of a Credit Form). This is the first time these have been provided. They were sent "without prejudice", but we do not want to be trapped by some new T&C we have not seen and he is trying to apply retrospecivelly. How do we reject these / make it clear we do not accept them given they are retrospective?
  12. Agreed That is what we started last week. That is what caused him to start emails "without prejudice", to start quoting T&C and to suggest we owe him more for work completed etc Agreed. We are not alone on this, I now know of at least two others that are less than satisfied with the services from this company. One of those is considering legal action, but is negotiating. I think this is just how they do business.
  13. T&C were not presented or referenced other than a small point in a footnote in the email, which also covers confidentiality, hours of business etc. Thus: "This electronic message contains information from XXX Fabrication Limited which may be privileged and confidential.
