Do I need to immediately pay an Invoice marked as Payment Immediately?

 

 

We recently had some carpentry work done.

No payment terms were discussed or covered in the quote.

 

 

We were not impressed with the work done nor the way the work was conducted.

The work was estimated to take 3 days but took 3 weeks.

 

 

That is incidental to the legal requirements for paying the invoice.

I'd just like to know when would be a reasonable time to pay the invoice.

 

The carpenter has chased the invoice and is threatening further action.

(We received the invoice 2 days ago).

Hi termhun and welcome to CAG

 

Unless they agree a payment date, the customer must pay you within 30 days of getting your invoice or the goods or service.

Thread moved to an appropriate forum.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm not sure what the definition of "Agree" a payment date is. I assume this would be in a contract or on a quote. Not on the Invoice itself.

In their Terms and Conditions of Business....and it may state it on the invoice itself.

You say you are not happy with the work done

Apart from the time taken is there anything else

 

What work was done is not to standard/ regulations?

I was disappointed in the quality of work.

We had new spindles placed in a staircase and new under stair storage/door fitted.

 

 

Shelves were left unattached, a light switch left dangling.

Gaps in woodwork.

The original work was estimated to take 3 days

but the guy hardly ever turned up and it took 3 weeks in the end.

 

 

what really irks me is this invoice demanding immediate payment.

I'll pay it as I want to limit further discussion with this guy.

I would hold off paying at the moment

If the work is not to standard

It will costt you to put right at a later date

They should not be leaving electrical in that state my guess is they not qualified and certantly not up to regulations

 

Get another joiner / carpenter to give you a quote to put things right

 

What gap is there between spindles on the staircase?

Could also be not to regulations
