I know a few folks on here have an eye for this kind of thing so......
We had an extention built on our house in 2017, Prior to this in August 2016 we had to have a bat survey done as part of the planning process. It was done by a local company and was £130 and was a total waste of time and money, but there you go.
This morningIi had a letter from some solicitors called Thomas Higgins stating they had been instrcuted by the bat comapny to recover a debt of £130 that we had not paid in August 2016 (bit of googling shows you can pay Higgins Solicitors 10 quid for a threa-o-gram for non payment of invoices)
Now, it was 2 years ago. I think I paid them but without going back theough all my old bank statements online, i cant directly prove it.
My main issue with this is that this was from 2016. We have never heard a peep from them sinc ethe day we received the report and original invoice, no reminders, no friendly threat letters - nada. It was 2 full tax years ago, so thay had to have submitted 2 lots of accounts which would have highllighted the non payment in both April 2017 and April 2018 so why this now.
I am assuming I have no rights around the fact that its "been 2 years and you never wrote or called" side of things?
I dont mind paying if i genuinely missed this - but the attitude of the way they have approached this makes me want to tell them to fuck off
Many of you run small businesses here so maybe I've missed someting important about the way in which invoicing is done but I would appreciate any thoughts on the matter
