Looking for advice
I recently had my living room ceiling removed and replaced as part of it had fallen down. When replacing it the plasterer knocked down the cornice on one side (it was completely intact before the job) He said he was unable to repair it and it was not his responsibility as my house is old and hence he was not liable. I have been quoted £650 for a mould to be made and it to be repaired by another plasterer. Am I right in thinking if he caused the damage he should be liable and not me? Also what can I do to get him pay up if he is liable?
