Defective installation of bathroom – recovery of fees

We were instructed by a local Altrincham man who engaged a bathroom contractor to remove his old and install his new bathroom.

Our client spent almost £10,000 in respect of the installation of his bathroom. Following identifying problems with the way the tiles were installed, which caused leaks, our client contacted the contractor directly and tried to seek redress.

Unfortunately, the contractor did not admit they had done anything wrong.

Our client therefore instructed us and we issued proceedings at Court against the contractor in order to recover the sums due. We liaised with a civil engineer in order for him to comment on the defects. The matter was listed for trial in the near future but as a result of the strength of the expert evidence and our preparation of the case, the contractor paid to our client the sum claimed.
