    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..        
    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear

Hi,

I don't know how to start a new thread so I though I would join this one.

 

I have not been billed or received any invoice for some building work I have had done.

 

 

It's been several months and I have heard nothing.

 

 

What I want to know is.

 

 

Can I suddenly be invoiced from the days the work was done but with interest added?

 

 

I have no contract and had no invoice.

 

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi Martin, The answers are as follows:

Scope of work done: Brick wall built

Value of work: £2000

Builders name: Sorry I don't want to disclose this, just a local builder though.

Is work completed: Work is completed but has some poor brickwork in it that I'm not happy with. I told him about it when he finished the work.

 

Thanks Martin.

Ok so the builder hasnt been paid but there is an issue with the brickwork which you have logged with the builder.

 

Was a plan made for the builder to return and rectify the faulty brickwork?

 

Was anything paid during the works?

Ok well in answer to your initial questions:

 

Yes he can invoice you out of the blue even a good few months or even years later although the latter is less likely.

What he cant do is add any interest until his invoice goes unpaid.

 

As you havent had an invoice he cant suddenly back date one and charge interest on it.

 

Have you tried to contact the builder to pay for the works or request an invoice?

Hi Martin, No I have not tried to contact him but I have set the funding for it aside if it gets demanded. I forgot to add that I have a pub biseness so it would be biseness to biseness. I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

I dont think it makes a difference to be honest if he hasnt invoiced you yet.

Wise to keep the funds aside, an invoice may still arrive.

Hello Martin,

Just one last thing. I wondered what would be the case if the builder later claims to have sent an invoice. I can guarantee I have not recieved one. Would he need to prove he has sent an invoice if he later tries to claim it plus interest.

BTW The thread has been moved again but I don't know how to find it. Hopefuly you will still see this Martin. Sorry, I' a newbe!

Looks like you managed to find it Albert.

 

If you prefer you could contact the builder and ask for the invoice along with a request for any remedial work you need completing. This would remove any concerns about the builder making future claims, although there is some pre action protocol he must follow before issuing a claim.

Thanks Martin, It does not seem fair whilst the interset rates are alomst at zero that a builder could potentially do a poor job that the customer does nothing about because he recieved no invoice for it, then months or even years later could potentially claim the bad work was not is but still demand full payment for it and an interest rate of at least 5%.

Hi AS,

 

Don't worry about what might happen.

 

Instead, I'd contact the builder and ask when he's going to fix the problem so you can pay what you owe.

 

It would be sensible to put this in writing if he fails to agree to remedy the job in the way you want.

 

If the job is not completed to your satisfaction within a couple of weeks, let us know and we'll discuss your options to get the job sorted by someone else.

 

:-)

Hi Slick, What is the best way to deliver the letter if I put it in writing or if he continues to ignore me? Mind you I suppose it's best to get some written dialog going and see what happens. What about if I just ask hom in writing if all my bills are settled or could he still send an invoice for work done before the letter was sent even if I do that. Yes, you right. The honest and correct thing to do is as you say is ask what he is going to do about fixing the problem and then pay him what I owe when it's finished. Is it best to get a solicitor to send the letter or just ask him to verify reciept of the letter in writing? Many thanks Slick.

I see no need for a solicitor to be involved. Probably an unnecessary expense.

 

I would firstly call the builder and ask if he's going to remedy the problem so you can pay what you owe. If that fails to get him back to sort the issue within 2 weeks, let us know so we can suggest an appropriate letter to send by RM Signed For delivery.

 

:-)

It will also help if we know :-

 

1. The nature of the problem with the work carried out.

 

2. Is it really so bad that it needs to be fixed.

 

3. The solution you think may resolve the problem.

 

4. The likely cost of remedy if you paid someone else to sort it.

 

:-)

Ok Slick, I'll have a think about that. To be honest my other school of thought is to just accept the problem as it is not a major fault and just wait and see if I ever get an invoice. I read on another thread that they would have 6 years to send me an invoice and it would be too late for them after that. Many thanks.

Hi AS,

 

If it's not a major fault and you can live with it, call the builder to discuss the matter.

 

Tell him he's already aware you're not entirely happy about the job but you want to pay him for it, taking into account your misgivings. Accordingly you suggest he accepts a reduction of £xx as the job is not done to the standard you'd expect.

 

The job's been done so it's not entirely fair to "wait and see if I ever get an invoice", even though it's the builders responsibility to send you an invoice.

 

Try to sort the matter so it doesn't drag on.

 

:-)

I agree with Slick, you dont want it dragging on and in indefinately.

 

1. Obtain a quote or two to remedy the issue with the brickwork

2. Write to original builder requesting invoice and either a schedule for remedy prior to settling invoice or reduction in invoiced amount to reflect remedial work required.

3. If there is no response from the builder within a given 14 day timeframe, advise builder in writing, remedy will be sought by a n other builder and paid for from full amount owing.

 

You want to create a paper trail to cover yourself. In the event that the builder tries it in at a later date, you need to be able to show you have attempted to resolve the situation without success and sought an alternate resolution.
