    Small Claims against Builder 13th Jun 19 at 5:03 PM
    To cut a long story short, I had a horrendous experience with the builder hired to make my loft conversion, the work was not up to scratch and he was attempting to extort money out of us above what was agreed on. We have since complained to his trade association who have decided to expel him due to his conduct and lack of skill. My question is, if I were to take him to Small Claims to claw back some of the money we paid him would being expelled from his trade association over the work he did for us mean that he is 'bang to rights' as it were.

    No. The two things are completely separate. Just because he has been expelled by his trade association doesn't mean you will win your case. It could be used as supplementary evidence, but the evidence you need will need to be based on not failure to execute his side of the contract.
