I got a nightmare promotional quotation from UK Everest for Roofline work. It was for £1185. When they got here they asked for £4000, they got this down to £1885.
I phoned Trading Standards and there is an ongoing dispute, Police, Social Services and Affinity Trust are involved.
The confusion seems to be caused by a new law that came in on 13 June 2014 called the Consumer Contracts (Information Cancellation Charges Regulations 2013.)
This gives consumers a lot of new rights, but a lot of traders dont seem to be aware of it yet? It does reduce scammer risk but will it be more bread and butter for lawyers?
