DO NOT USE THIS MAN

This man charged me upfront £706 on 28.02.21 to do some tiling and put a shower screen up in the bathroom. It is now 11.07.21 and he still has not done the work. I have now cancelled the job but he won't refund me. I am taking out a County Court Judgement against him to get my money back.

Just Don't Hire Him, it's not worth the risk.

This is feedback for Mr Richard Kemp of Property Services Handyman Dover.
I have used this service, and now I use the term very loosely, twice. First he did some basic painting and decorating at our house we were selling, seemed a reasonable job and a low price. The second job was on our bathroom in our new home; he quoted his day rate and in conversation gave us confidence that he knew what he was doing by what he was saying. I’ll just cut to the chase, in three weeks Richard removed and old wet room and with my help installed plastic sheeting for the walls and placed the sinks and toilet and bath in the bathroom. He changed a radiator and added another and part tiled the floor. After £2500 I had the walls done badly no toilet, sink or bath let alone a shower. To me I seemed to be the brains to offer effective solutions to problems encountered. He would always answer, “I was just about to suggest/say that” or “I was thinking that”. He works from 8am till 4pm but turns up late most days and leaves well before 4pm unless pushed. At the end of each day he would tell me what he had done, and I just saw all that he didn’t do. He promised to return and finish the bathroom and never did, he even left tools here. (What do you call a person the doesn’t do as they say they will?)
We think his skill base is very limited. We asked him what he could do, he says “We do everything”, well he doesn’t plaster or Artex 90% of his plumbing work leaked and I have a hole in my ceiling downstairs to repair a leak he had left under the floor. It was plastic push fit plumbing and it leaked!!!! I have photographs and videos to prove this. To summarise just don’t hire him!
