Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I’ve had a lot of problems with my electrician who was refusing to provide an invoice for the entire work ( labour + materials). I paid a deposit of £400, which he used to buy all the materials (smoke alarms, fuse box etc), which he never wanted to invoice for.
Because I refused to pay him until he provided an itemised list of materials purchased on my behalf, he called me untrustworthy and refused to forward the certificates until he receives a full payment. He has since provided me with two invoices – one for the labour cost and one (detailed ) for materials. The second invoice is not correct I will query it.
What is my legal position?
Do I pay the first invoice now and request that he forwards the certificates?
Is he obliged to forward them to me before the full payment?
How do I know if he is even registered? I did ask but did not check (he was recommended).
Also he disregarded my measurements for an electric shower cable (they are expensive), took his own and overestimated by 4 metres and is charging me for it.
Should I be paying for his error? My measurement was correct.
I would very much appreciate your feedback
