I like property

Hi All,

I did put up a message a few weeks ago about the poor execution from the builder, I had the  buildings insurance company come out to assess the problem, so that is all in place right now, but due to the poor execution of the work, the relationship between both builder and I is a but difficult right now due t the very bad work that has been carried out, we are holding back part of the payment until it is all complete ( he says it complete but we are not) now he is saying he will be sending his report to the insurance firm unless we settle the outstanding bill on his completed work.

Has anyone had similar experiences that they can help, I really don't want to have him send something to the insurance to potentially mean they can cancel our claim that is currently pending the work has cost 10K so we are not just talking about a small insurance claim right now.

Any guidance will be very much appreciated

thanks in advance

What exactly is this 'report' that you are talking about?

How does the builder that you & your agent employed know which insurance company you are using?

On what basis do you believe they could cancel your claim? Either your claim is valid and is within the terms of your insurance policy, or it is not. What has your claim got to do with your builder?
