I have a few properties in London; I manage the properties myself mostly, and so I often engage the services of various handymen.
As you can imagine, most handymen are most insistent on being paid as soon as the job is completed. Naturally, I pay handymen immediately (or the next day at most), and since I use bank payments, I have a perfect audit trail as to whom I have paid, how much and when.
So, you can imagine my surprise when I got an email from one handyman I had used in the past, saying that his accountant had informed him that he did not bill me for a previous work – carried out six months ago!
He has now sent me an invoice for that date and a work schedule; I have no recollection (or indeed proof – other than his invoice) of this.
What (if any) are existing laws that cover contesting/refuting this bill?
