Sorry to hear about your non payer. Some people are beyond belief !

Still, what goes around comes around. Best to put that one behind you until the next time they ask for your services ;)

Regards, John.

Hi Sy.

This is one of the things that worries me the most about being self employed. I have read all the replies you had, but in the end, what exactly can you do about people like this?

I'm no push-over mate and I would be furious if this happened to me.

I appreciate what you say about "....better

In the office again.
Mike:

loved the idea with the smokey....I`ll have to remember that. It would be even better if you knew what flooring was being fitted in each room.....glued laminate or candine would be so much better than carpet :)

Seriously for a mo - I haven`t had this dubious pleasure (yet), and always attempt to give some sort of clue to the costing, even if we can`t issue a full estimate.

Database of bad payers!! excellent idea. Where do we start? We need someone who`s wizard at setting up these computer thingies!!!

Hmmmmm let me think :eek:

Ext,Would have thought it was the landlord`s/letting agent`s decision, rather than the tenant?
(Private landlord I'm refering to here, the tenant has no say at all)

Hence I stated TFO, the letting agency finds a tenant for a fee only..

(So I end up chasing the Landlords for the money(most pay promptly))

However they are expected to have a Gas & electrical check, regardless..

I've since told the LA, that its prepayment for these customers..
