Many years ago,following installation work in a flat,the payment cheque bounced.After taking the customer to the small claims court the verdict was the customer was not happy with the work.This verdict was 18 months after completion of the job.Any opinions on the grounds for this verdict,since there had been no complaints about the work and passing a dud cheque is an offence in itself?
Thanx for any replies,Hz

I'll be interested in watching replies, I too have a similar customer not paid a penny for guts of £2k worth of work. Saying he wasn't happy with works and when we told them we were not finishing the last 15% of works without payment he got someone else to finish job.

How was that verdict arrived at?
Anybody who doesn't want to pay can say they're not happy with the work, what was it about the work that the customer was not happy with?

I presume the client took independent advice from a professional which would have then generated a report ?

So the Judge must have made a decision on some form of evidence.

or maybe not .

To my knowledge there was never a report and I gave up on the case,
as the amount owing was £80 00.But I found it incredible that a magistrate/judge could rule the work was faulty after 18months when I
took the action because of the rubber cheque.So lets all give dud cheques if were not happy with the car service or meal.
