Angry Invoice recieved after 11 months

Hi all,

Had some work done on my car last August. Gearbox leak...took 3 visits to the garage to fix.

To cut a long story short...sent a cheque last August but garage never cashed a cheque.

Yesterday received a text message saying they have just found the invoice and that I need to pay.

Where do I stand as I had completely forgot that the garage had not cashed the cheque..

I can't belive it took 11 months for them to realise they hadn't cleared the invoice

I'd seek legal advice mate.

CAB maybe?

Thing is, YOU have received the work, However they received payment, just didnt cash it!?

Sounds like slopy book-keeping on behalf of the garage. Check with your bank to see if the cheque has been cashed - if not then legally you still owe. I realise it may not be suitable for you to pay at the moment so you may be able to negotiate a phased means of repayment or even discount. Think about it what would you do if you where in their situation.

Either sloppy book keeping or the garage are now in financial trouble and need some money fast!.

I'm with Tigz,a call to the CAB would be a wise move.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

You wouldn't get away with not paying it it was the inland revenue.

You had the work done, you should pay, simple as. Sori.
