Two rogue traders in charge of building firms which carried out tens of thousands of pounds of shoddy work face prison after they admitted a catalogue of reckless trading offences.
Jonathan Jones and Rebecca Dack pleaded guilty to crimes against customers who were charged more than £50,000 for building work.
It was said they “failed to adequately undertake building works”, while in one they failed to provide a cost breakdown.
Jonathan Jones told a woman he needed a £1,450 deposit to build a new wall at her home, he told another woman he needed £1,200 to build a patio, and told a man he needed £4,300 to construct a driveway, as well as promising refunds of £1,200 and £300 for cancelled works.
Rebecca Dack told one customer a contract could not be terminated within the cancellation period as £800 had been spent on materials.
If you have received a shoddy service from a builder or contractor then you may have a right of action under the Consumer Rights Act. The Act states that the work must be completed with reasonable care and skill be completed within a reasonable time, unless a specific time is agreed and use materials that are of satisfactory quality and fit for their purpose.
