Writ­ten con­tracts best pro­tec­tion from cow­boys

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

WRIT­TEN con­tracts for build­ing work are the best op­tion for home­own­ers who want to pro­tect them­selves from un­scrupu­lous trades­men, says the Fed­er­a­tion of Mas­ter Builders in its re­sponse to the Govern­ment’s Con­sumer Bill.

The Fed­er­a­tion’s Brian Berry says: “The Govern­ment is right to want to in­crease pro­tec­tion for con­sumers against rogue traders.

“How­ever, the idea that con­sumers will be will­ing and able to record ver­bal agree­ments on their iPhones is mis­placed.”
