    At least tell her that if she is not going to pay you will have to look at legal action even if you don't it might give her a nudge, that looks a good job don't take it lying down.

    How can anyone moan about that! Looks good mate. They are just trying to get out of paying. I'd take them to small claims

    Thanks all for your encouragement. I'll let you know what happens. A friend of mine is a chippie and he's knows her fairly well so I may get him to take a look.

    I have had 'dealings' with an Irish woman near Brighton...go westwards twixt Brighton and Littlehampton, seemed to be a pastime of hers to find fault/nit pick to every tradesmans work and then never paying the agreed price. :mad::eek:o_O

    To be honest there really isn't anything I can do, simply because I don't think there's a problem

    You're almost in the exact location! Definitely very English though.

    I'd be tempted to fit a magnetic catch at the top and bottom to pull the doors into line with the cabinet.

    Out of interest, the doors are an MDF frame with an MDF panel centre ?

    Nice work. Even from a quick look at your photos, anyone with an eye can see the work is to a very good standard.

    Remove doors, drawers etc to the value of the outstanding balance then politely tell her to **** off!

    Yes. Pretend your going to work on them and remove them all.
    When paid in full you will refit them.

    They're 18mm MDF (moisture resistant) with 4mm applied to give the effect.

    I would tell her you will take her to court. See if it will make her change her mind. Take more pics and get someone in the trade to go round with you to take a look.

    Probably spent the money she saved over the years on lessons in speaking proper English (like what we do) :D:D:D:D
