Dear Guest – am sorry to read about your friend, that is a terrible story.
However, am hoping my situation might be rather different. It is not a case of suffering ‘major faults’, my developer hasn’t built anything to have a major fault on!
So hoping as nothing has been built, never will be built, and breach of contract etc. there is nothing for them to appeal about.
25,000 euros sounds a lot of money – couldn’t they have done it on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, or rather ‘a minimal fee’.
Do hope your friend gets a result soon.
