Disputing plastering quality

Hope that's the right place to post...

Had a plasterer do work on three rooms - living, dining rooms and kitchen, but left tons of issues - mesh showing, sockets not properly filled and uneven, uneven corners on walls, just to name a few... attached only a couple of examples.

Frankly, I do not want him to return and even give him a chance to rectify his work. What are the options here? He has admitted most of the issues and wants to fix them.

Also, what is the best way to fix the corners?

Did you get 3 quotes and went with the cheapest one.

Final invoice not paid yet, but he tried to charge close to £4k. Obviously this is being heavily disputed, considering he already did a reskim of three bedrooms and bathroom ceiling for about £1.3k.

Unfortunately no other quotes, we used him based on a recommendation... lesson learned the hard way.
 
There not many quality plasterers out there. Somebody than can do a standard of work thats at least paintable. There's a few really good quality tradesmen about. flat, and matt, and the work when dry is uniform. Take my hat off to those that learn the trade and know how to put out that kind of work like its nothing.
