I have a friend who is a self employed tiler, he completed some work a few months ago and is still waiting for his money from the sub-contractor. The excuse he is getting is that "I have not been paid for the job, therefore i cannot pay you", now i thought this was against the law as he was employed by the sub-contractor, NOT the main contractor or client.

 

Please help

Hello there. Does your friend have anything in writing from the sub-contractor in terms of an agreement to do the work, or any other paperwork that would help him argue this?

Sorry my information was slightly off, the job was nearly a year ago. It was a total of £18,000 and £8,000 was paid in stage payments by cheque with the balance to be paid at the end of the job, which is only a verbal agreement. What the sub-contractor is saying is that he cannot pay until his 5% retention is paid. Even if he was withholding 5% retention from my friend (£900) the other £9,100 surely should of been paid by now. My friend just wants to know where he stands legally for the outstanding balance.
