Builder Report

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I?ve had a rogue builder at my property and I am looking for a builder who can provide an report for the value of work that has been done should the matter proceed to court? I would be appreciative of anyone who can point me in the general direction of anyone who is able to do this? Thanks.

Probably should be in another section but anyway:


If it's small fry you might just draw a line under the experience and start again but if there's a structural risk, an uninhabitable property or a dangerous work space now in play with ?1000s to fix it then worth elaborating...


You might benefit from a RICS building survey but don't fork out ?1200 for a report and then start going legal for no good reason.


What works have been done or not done, what damage - if any - has been done, and what monies - if any - have you paid?

Thanks for your reply thousands have been paid to the builder for a loft in full and he has not completed it and damaged a lot of existing property and personal items. However, what I need is someone to evaluate the amount of what that?s been done.

just get quotes for how much to finish and make good, these will be free and builders will be round like a shot


deduct from dodgy builders money or sue for difference


try and keep under 10K, then you can go through small claims court


most builders will just ignore it, in which case you'll win by default


if builder is trading through limited company, then may go bust ... nothing to do in this case

I want to find a builder who will do loft conversions for under 10k as well

Also someone who can refurb my bathroom for 100 quid too

redpost is saying if possible to keep it under ?10k to finish and make good, not to do the whole loft conversion.

    • Probably not, Alice. Never mind
    • I seem to remember it is quite straight forward - you just send them an email explicitly stating you are making a FOI request and who you are and say you want to see all the responses from the consultation. 
    • Vinegar seems to work. A few years ago we had a real fox problem, and I was told human urine is good. Thing is, it smells and seems you need a lot of it. Some vinegar along your perimeter should help. They've hundreds of other gardens to prowl.  
    • I was with TNV up until about a year ago and I had an out of hours emergency. I don’t know what they advise on their voicemail now but back then it was to go to the SLEVC on The High Parade in Streatham. In my panic I heard the message and went to Streatham instead of Camberwell (which is closer to ED) & the experience in Streatham was appalling. Perhaps my pet and I were just very unlucky with the vet on duty that particular night, I don’t know, as I hadn’t been before. But I do know I’ll always regret going to the High Parade clinic in Streatham and will never go near the place with a barge pole ever again. A couple of the nurses were wonderful but the rest was truly dreadful.
