Hi I need some advice. I have been doing plumbing working for an estate agents, no contract was signed at the time and on the invoices I have sent I only ever put please make payments strictly within 30 days. I have never been paid within 30 days, so started adding charges of £40 to each invoice, was I allowed to do this and can they back out of paying me saying they have never seen my terms and conditions?

Hello
If there is no contract agreed between the 2 parties then the default period used by the legislation is 30 days from receipt of the goods or services. After that period, you can charge interest and compensation.

Hi David that's very helpful thanks, since the post I made they have paid me the outstanding invoices without the charges I added, I worked for them for the last 18 months and every time they were late, needless to say I am not working for them anymore, what can I do to claim charges off them, they still seem to think I should have provided terms and conditions to them.

does the sent invoice need any specific information on it? I have gone back over the last year and found 23 invoices were over 30 days but some invoices never said please pay with in 30 days on them, they also didn't have the said estate agents details on it, but I do have proof it was them as I was paid bank transfer and the dates they were paid into my account
