Women Pays $5K to Contractor for her House, Still not Satisfied with its Safety

RICHMOND – Carolyn Robinson claims that she paid over $5000 to a contractor for some work related to home improvement. She said even after paying the mentioned amount, she has not received the kind of service she wanted which left her unsatisfied with the contractor’s work. On the other hand, the contractor said that he did exactly the same as discussed before starting the work. Now, the conflict has sprouted out of this matter which has resulted in a troubling situation.

Robinson pointed out some problems in the work of the contractor, Mark Payne. The lady has claimed that she paid construction liaison Mark Payne $5250 to do the pre-discussed work. The contractor said that there is nothing wrong with his work. He further said that he did the work discussed between them and the problems in the work are created by the other contractor which was hired to do the siding work in the home.

The lady, Robinson counting the problems said there is a sloping porch which needs to be fixed. It should have been leveled but it is not actually the case. The top porch is fine but the bottom porch should be fixed so that she could place the ball over and also she wanted to put some siding on there but eventually, she could not do so now.

She questioned the work of the contractor, Mark Payne and said since the porch columns were not properly installed so a safety railing was taken down by a different contractor to install the siding. Robinson also said her gutters were also sealed and rainwater doesn’t flow through them but it just accumulates in the yard.

In his clarification, Payne said his work was just to replace rotted boards on the porch. He even showed the photograph to support his claim that safely railing was in its place when he finished his work. Also, he said that the columns were installed correctly and the contractor who installed the siding has been responsible for creating a problem in the work.

Everyone aims to get service like that of siding contractor in Trumbull but sometimes things do not go hand-in-hand. The work was done by Jose Villatoro and Empire PMTH Inc. And the State Board of Contractors released a statement that it has a Class C contractor’s license. Robinson has said that she is not thinking of the other work which was supposed to be completed in a decided fashion.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
