I'm confused whether it is the Defence or Counterclaim box I should write in, on a Defence and Counterclaim Form. Is the counterclaim section only for money above what I have withheld to offset another electrician completing work or is it should this section be used to claim use of the money I've withheld from him? An electrician has claimed in County Court for payment I have withheld as work left unfinished. (He has claimed nearly £1500.00 although amount withheld £1127.83. He has not put in particulars why claiming more.) £2809.44 has been paid. Lots of issues but main ones are; - Consumer board half installed - No lighting since October as circuits unconnected. - Installed cabling and made ceiling holes for 22 lights for prospective lessees, they withdrew and he has charged me for most of this. - It has seriously stressed me and affected letting of the commercial property etc. I have estimate from another electrician to finish the work, it will entail redoing some work, checking all cabling and connections made, testing, report and certification costing around the figure he is claiming. Difficult to get an exact figure for work of this nature half done. I've read I should provide estimate to claimant in writing and give him another opportunity to finish it before I get work done elsewhere.
