what shall i do how do i get my money or do i just take the fence and patio up she owes me at least £1710 for work done

 

Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 8 years ago

you cannot take the fence and patio up.

 

But this is simple enough to solve. Just write to her once giving her a further seven days to pay and making clear that you will take action if she does not.

 

If she does not then just sue her here

You will win if you have the evidence you describe.
