Customer Question

We are a builder and repaired a roof. On 5 August 2008 there was a leak into the flat during a storm. The client considered the water damage was our responsibility. The client made a claim of �18500.00 for damage to his flat and his insurance company paid up. On 27 January 2009 and 23 November 2010 the insurance company wrote holding us liable. The client has withheld �18500.00 from our account.
From which date does the statute of limitations apply.

Has this been ongoing for the last 7 years.

If his insurer paid up why is he holding your money?

Is the insurance co not chasing you?

It seems that the client is £18k better off!

As much background detail as possible is really useful.
