Building Works

Ask a Question

I am a newbie in the subject but I was wondering if someone who has done building works has retained a fraction from the cost, retention, after they have finished so if there are any issues they need to fix it. Is it common?

Surely it is not expected to pay full amount until the job is finished to your satisfaction. I would be ok paying half before finish, maybe a quarter up front and another half way through, balance on completion. I wouldn't make them wait for their money unless I was unhappy with the work.
