claim and land registry charge

No.

silent treatment. Other than a message asking for the key back as someone needed it,(before invoice was presented) insinuating that i Should be there getting on with something, and that it looked as though I had not done anything that day, but I had just left after doing approx 7 hrs work. So I presented an invoice when returning key including that days work, so they could see what I had done that day.

its all a bit 'Jerry springer' to be honest! I was told it was the persons mothers house, and that 'mum' just wanted to do a house up with her money so she could make some money and then buy a bigger house. So I first presented invoices to 'mum'. It was daughter who always paid me though (bank transfer), not 'mum'. It turns out house is in daughters name.

so regardless of what I was told, daughter is legal owner. Daughter is in some kind of relationship with someone who use to be very famous, he use to call her his misses to me, but she says they are not together, but he buys her cars and stuff, did consider if it is his funds being used. Not really any of my business other than thinking who actually employed me.There was a young chap (builder) meeting her at the property on a few occasions, and she was always dressed to the nines when he turned up, and flirty flirty with him.Jerry jerry....

whats this all about then!
Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996

is this only in respect to people who obtain grants?

Provisions not applicable to contract with residential occupier.

(1)This Part does not apply—
(a)to a construction contract with a residential occupier (see below), or
(b)to any other description of construction contract excluded from the operation of this Part by order of the Secretary of State.
(2)A construction contract with a residential occupier means a construction contract which principally relates to operations on a dwelling which one of the parties to the contract occupies, or intends to occupy, as his residence.

When you quote tiny extracts from a long statute, please state which section you are quoting from. I note that the words you have cut and pasted refer to their application to a specific Part of the Act.

Your question needs a construction law specialist. I suspect you are thinking of adjudication. If the bit you have quoted is relevant, it would appear to suggest that this may not be a way forward for you.

I do know that, as the title suggest, that Act is about more than housing grants. That is probably why it has several Parts.

its not relevant to me as it is only for litigation against a man! 'or intends to occupy, as his residence'.

I dont think it really comes into things in my situation anyway. Just came across it.

so your approached and asked to renovate a property, you are told that Mum just wants to do something with her money, but all negotiations are with daughter. 'mum just wants to buy a house, make a bit of money so she can buy something bigger'.

Mum is retired and lives in a 1 bedroom rented flat. Mum asserts to be the one paying for things, and directing things, but the property to be renovated is registered in daughters name. So Mum 'would have been eligible' to pay tax as she has no intention in living in the property, so is classed as a developer, save that its not registered in her name, so is not legal owner, she may or may not also be in receipt of rent benefit for her flat. I suppose all is well if daughter declares taxable profit on the sale of the property? anything 'dodgy' going on here?

atticus if you issue a claim but get paid after you issue, can you keep going to get the fees/ time spent/loss of earnings back, I presume court does not refund fees?

I mean if you cough up say £100.00 to the court to issue claim, then get a check in the post for what you were seeking judgment on, do you just think o well there went £100.00 but I got my money? or can you keep going to court for the fees and loss of earnings if they were not included in the cheque you received.

You can apply to enter judgment for what you are claiming, plus the costs and court fees to which you may be entitled, less the sums paid.

so I agreed to give a person 2 days a week and renovate a property, i was specific about that,(2 days a week more if my schedule allowed) I wanted to help them out and fit them in if that was agreeable to them. They agreed. Once I started they wanted it done quicker, and seemed to not give a stuff about this agreement, so as well as the unpaid invoice I am suing for breach of contract. There own letter confirms 'you agreed to renovate so and so property' it goes on you wanted x amount per hour we agreed'.

then it rambles on 'you only worked 2 days a week, 3 if we were lucky'.

is that enough to establish a contract? agreement and acceptance?

It appears to indicate the existence of a contract. It may not set out the full terms.

I am guessing that you did not confirm the tetms you had agreed in writing, e.g. letter or e-mail.
