    To update you guys i have said i am not paying the labour money but can pay the materials.

    HOWEVER i have a problem with the driveway concrete has dropped a bit and water is collecting next to house toching brick etc.
    Builder said hes not coming out til i pay ALL his money. So i have not paid the material money.

    Advice please?

    I think that you now realise that your stuffed until he has been paid and even then I don't think he will do anymore for you..

    So not only did he mess up the price but he also did a substandard job.

    I wouldn't pay him anything extra and just get someone else in to correct his mistakes.

    Yeah, get someone else in to correct the work and don't pay them either.

    Yeah, pay him what you owe. YOU are the one who is being unlawful.
