Cash deposit

Posted by Grace Field, on
I have been quoted £350 for a small job repairing manhole cover and sunken driveway. The tradesperson has asked for £150 cash deposit to buy materials. Is this acceptable?

In my opinion deposits are prohibited However in big jobs maybe A tradesmen should always be confinement in he’s work and that the customer will pay on completion I think as long as a contract has been drawn then the need for a deposit is un necessary Thanks john
