    So on my road I do a fair few houses and about 6 months ago I started cleaning the house dead opposite me, charge them £7 and do it every 5 weeks. The first two times I got paid fine but since I have done the windows 3 times meaning a debt of £21. Iv knocked on the door when there in and they ignore the door, must of left 10+ slips reminding them of the debt. Have bumped into them 2 or 3 times and each time they say oh yeah we will do it tonight but they never do. Would you take it further?

    Definitely
    Especially as they are opposite you and still think they can mug you off
    Personally i would have lost the plot with them by now seeing their house every day would wind me up

    Small Claims Court - how to.

    Copy the text used here Jake. I have always found it works well. I have been paid by two of them and today I will file a claim for the third one as she is a real P.I. Staker.

    Good luck and welcome to the forum Jake Squirrell

    I just drop and move on now. It's only the odd one, I'd rather spend my time being productive than perusing twenty quid. If it was fifty though......
