Dispute over painting job
02 Apr 2019 (18 views)

Dear Mr Tan,
I would like to seek your advise regarding an e-commerce scam which I am experiencing now,if possible.
I am currently having a problem with a freelance painter which I've engaged from Carousell and am thinking of approaching CASE to help to mediate my case.
However, as I can see on CASE website that they are handling consumer to business disputes, i'm not sure if they will take up my case.
I would like to seek your advise for any other alternative solutions if available.
My circumstances roughly is that the painter has collected full payment for the promised paint job for my house but he has only finished painting half of my house and is refusing to come back now and finish the job.
It's supposed to be a 2 days work but it's been 1 month plus now and we are unable to get him to come back and finish the job.

REPLY
Do you have a written contract with him for the job, and also a receipt for the payment?
You can take up this matter with the Small Claims Tribunal.
