I have a plumbing contractor who took money up front as a deposit to buy materials for a renovation and never finished the job or actually bought the materials!
I have asked for £1,000 of the £2,000 he took from me and he agreed via text to pay the very next day (don’t worry I didn’t think this would happen immediately). However, a couple of weeks on and the money has still not materialised and I have now informed him of my decision to take him to small claims.
He has just texted saying he cannot pay £1,000 in one lump sum and giving me the poor contractor with family line, but wishes to repay the whole £2000 in instalments of £250 per week.
My question is, should I accept his terms or legally am I digging myself some kind of hole?
I am fully aware he is a sole trader and will not want any CCJ’s.
Thanks in advance for any advice
