Hi...

 

I recently went to a builders merchants to research a roofing material.

 

The company when I asked if they knew of any good installers gave me the name of one,whom I rang and got him to do the roofing job.

 

Subsequently the roofer was more cowboy than John Wayne and after botching the job(which I am taking him to small claims court for)I went to visit the merchants and told them about the issues.

 

They pretty much said unlucky ...now...p**s off...!

 

Of course I am extremly mad aboutt his and am wondering does any legal resposibility lay at the merchants door for recommending the installer.

 

 

Thanks Guys..

Im not sure what the damages would consist of-maybe a portion of the blame/loss of amenity etc........Im just not happy of their total arrogance of suggesting a rogue trader then trying to absolve themselves of any responsibility..I didnt follow up with any independant research as a large builders merchants refferal was"acceptable"to me at the time.

There is only a possible claim if the reference was given in bad faith, i.e. they knew the installer would not meet your requirements. This would be almost impossible to prove I'm afraid.
