A builder company has carried out substantial work on a property managed by a house management company. Negotiations and instructions came from the company secretary, who also made stage payments on behalf of the company. However the final payment has not been made – the secretary says that one of the leaseholders (a director) refused to pay his (substantial) share because some extra work relating only to his flat was not done.
The management company accounts show only a small figure for fixed assets and no cash. Is it worth taking it or the secretary to Small Claims Court?
Happy new year to all!
