A recent QS report conducted by a qualified RICS surveyor assessed the value of work completed to be 68% based on value of work completed.
Some of the subcontractors have not been paid or only partially paid for the completed work, the estimated payments Clarence has made for work completed is around 27%. This means Clarence Knight has allegedly kept 73% of all the moneys paid!
Clarence has refused to pay these subcontractors, or refund the unspent money to me.

On the 24th January 2020 I terminated Clarence Knight from the JCT contract
“In accordance with the JCT contract you signed 11th June 2018, this letter is to inform you of immediate termination of your role as the Contractor within the contract in the building of XX XXXXX XXXX, under section 6.5 Insolvency of the Contractor.”
I have shown the subcontractors my bank statements to prove the money has been deposited into his account over the past two years, and I also have receipts from him acknowledging he has received he money.
We have raised this case with the Police through Action Fraud (case number NFRC191203397350).
He claims to be friends with Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab, we have contacted both of them asking for help in this case.
We need to have a Judge review the material of this case, by conducting a Private Criminal Prosecution against him.
Wayne Horner from Setfords Solicitors will manage any money raised, it will only be used to bring Clarence Knight to Justice.
We need £6000 to start the process of the Private Criminal Prosecution against Clarence Knight. Please help us.
