Tip of the week

Take lots of photos Keep copies and document everything - from meetings to phone calls. With a digital camera, take photos of all aspects of the works as they progress. If you find yourself in a dispute, this is your evidence - and it costs nothing to maintain. As with any ‘case’, you will have to present the facts backed up by evidence to an impartial judge, and the better and stronger your evidence the more likely you are to win. 

Guy Elyahou, solicitor and author of Law for Home Improvers and Self-Builders
