A family was left homeless this week after a builder changed the locks to their home. J.J. Builders were hired to finish off the family home after the owner, who was a semi professional builder, hired the company to finish off the work.
House owner Shane Balls of Camborne said “I built our family home myself, but I hired J.J. Builders to finish it off, as I thought they would do a better job than me! I gave them all the materials to finish off the house. They were the most expensive quote, which I thought would give me the best work. Sadly, I was wrong! When it was finished, I wasn’t happy at all, so I asked them for a refund. They refunded me the money, then changed the locks to the house. When I went round to the house, J.J. Builders had given the house away for free to the next door neighbours!”
Shane later contacted the company who made a statement, they said “Shane Balls did not like the work on the house and because J.J. Builders worked on the house and refunded the money they now own it and can do whatever they like!”
Shane is now seeking legal advice to retrieve his home back!
