Response to accusation (by accused):

McLean Heritage Homes trading name of McLean Corporation Limited provided an estimation to Mr Murphy and undertook works on our small works rates charging per hour for tradesmen as outlined in our contract. Mr Murphy failed to pay an invoice for works as per our contract. Mr Murphy breached our contract. Works were stopped. Invoices were never paid and tradesmen did not return. Mr Murphy rejected mitigation as contractually agreed by both parties (2nd Breach of Contract by Mr Murphy). Mr Murphy has reported McLean Heritage Homes to Trademark and Federation of Master Builders and other agencies. All allegations were found to have no merit and have been dismissed. Mr Murphy launched a claim against McLean Heritage Homes (Mclean Corporation Limited) to pay for the remaining works he needed to complete his renovation and extension via small claims court. McLean Corporation LTD is suing Mr Murphy for unpaid invoices and costs for approximately £4,900. Court Hearing will take place in 2022 and judgement will be made. Mr Murphy has recently taken to targeting unrelated 3rd parties that employees are part of unrelated to his case. To discredit and cause loss. This has been reported to the court.
