I have lived in Charente dept 16 for 24 yrs nr Confolens , 10-12yrs ago there was a serious problem with Gb " Artisans " doing incoming Brits . Seemed to go quiet for a fewyears but has recently reared up again with a vengence this time on jobs where serious money is involved 20-30,000e .
I want to get some real info e.g what should be on a devis , approx hourly rates for various trades , how to check siret number , can an artisan be "struck off " if so how , maison de metiers ..what role do they play .
I am asking if anyone has such info and is there a place where I might find such info I feel it is something thatneeds to be looked into with the possibility of producing a document to try and stop this type of practice it is usually people who cannot afford to be taken for a ride that get stung.
Thankyou for any info you might have also need to remember there are also "rogue clients " Celia Lougher
