How much deposit?

Anonymous user 28 May 2022 - 3.01 PM

We have been asked to pay 50% deposit on job that is not due to start until October. We think this is not correct. Can you advise? BB

I personally think 20% is acceptable to book a date in with a builder

Personally i wouldn't ask for a 50% deposit so soon. i would wright up an agreement that states if you pull out you must pay 25% of the original quote. I would normally take a deposit a month before said job was due to start and typically would only ask for a 10 or 20% deposit depending on the size of the job.

20% for materials is exceptable. If they are unhappy with this offer 25% now and 25% in a week or two if you are happy with the progress and quality of work.
