No payment what do they expect... this is where architect should have control and pay accordingly but think they charge upto 20% for this service.

Builders take advantage all time . They for one aint loosing out if the cost spirals.

If the builder is a cowboy then hard luck .But all this rubbish in peoples terms about "stuff belongs to us until paid for " is worth zero f's in a court. You cannot remove stuff from a property .Its theft .

What was that one a couple of years back where a scouser drove a digger through a Travelodge causing about half a million quid's worth of damage because of owed wages? There was a film of it. He locked himself in the cab and just went berserk.

Found it but I don't know how to copy it to here.
Type 'Travelodge' in 'search'. It was a post by LeeSK

edit, Most have probably seen it but quite a few haven't, so have a look.

Did £443k worth of damage and got 5years in jail although that's probably 18months in real money.
All over £600 owed.

Many stories flying around that this is a "Planning permission scam" type of thing .The owner hoping the house will need taking down and he can then rebuild .JUST like the expensive house in london that "fell down " 2 years ago .100% scam !

If goods are not payed for how can that be theft to remove, surely its stealing on the home owner for not paying for the goods.
