Hi Theory.

Sorry about your problem. Never been there before but I think I would explain the situation to the customer and ask them what they think is fair. As you're a good honest bloke my experience is that 99 out of 100 customers will see you right because there is a personal relationship! If that happens I'd write to the kitchen fitter and explain what you've done so he has a chance to get his accounts in order. Don't know if that helps or if I'm totally naive! Fingers crossed for a good outcome!

Is there a contract between customer and kitchen fitter? If so they may still owe them money, and have to pay twice!
I have seen the paperwork and it states the electrical work required

but no price for it

i have done the work so one lot of money should be payable and if i give a receipt for monies received then the customer has honoured the contract,i have been paid and the administrators can go swivel

In the office again.
Theo :( :( :(

See customer direct mate. If you had a good relationship with customer ( as I`m sure you did), then likely customer will offer to sort you out, as you`ll be out of pocket.

Make sure your invoice goes in to them anyway, you may get some recompense after sale of their assets.

Hope you get em bud.

(I`ll have ckr sw in post tomoz.)

Hi Theo, was it you who said , the other day, you were working with a right grumpy kitchen fitter , if so we know why now !! Sorry to hear it M8 , don't think you'll get anything out of the fitter now, maintain your relationship with customer, do the board change and get something out of the job.

If the job is under building control it might pay to hang on to the Part P , ask who is paying you to come back to test it .
