Beware London Great Construction / Greg Builder (Mazur)

Postby szerma » Wed Feb 03, 2016 2:29 pm

Dear all,
Some people have seen me post about bad experiences with builders.
Some others have asked me to share the name of the builder from hell.

He's very clever at getting clients to pay a lot of money and then disappearing without a word. In fact, one disgruntled client already started a website naming him.

It took 1.5 years for us to go through small claims court and we just won the case. Getting the money back is another issue.

If you ever come across a guy calling himself "Greg Builder", who is Polish, ask for his surname. If his surname is Mazur, avoid like the plague.
He might also be operating under his company name, London Great Construction.

I also have words of wisdom for anyone who has a contract with a guy who is a "one man band" or even a small company which is a Limited company. You can't sue them directly, only the company, if things go haywire.

You could make them PERSONALLY liable by getting a personal guarantee from them as a director of the company. This would mean you could claim money from them if the company became insolvent. I did not know that - wish I did. I recommend this to anyone handing over significant amounts of money to a small builder.

I welcome any comments and happy to provide specific details of what the above named builder got up to. I have to say he's extremely convincing and a great marketer, hence gullible clients like us believe him (and unfortunately I know we weren't the only victims).

Best,
M

I'd be interested to know more. Mr Mazur is my neighbour, our gardens adjoin - it's public record on his previous company directorship if you wish to find his address (Azure Construction Ltd) I cannot post it here as it may contravene the Data Protection Act. He worked for me last year (supposedly a 5 week project) and lied from start to end (4 months till they left and over one year and snagging continue) my neighbours also used him and suffer similar issues also.On Monday he returned under threat of legal action, as I served him with a second default notice, to attempt to lay my kitchen floor again (attempt 8). I took two days out from our family holiday to oversee work but unsurprisingly he did his usual disappearing act and after confronting him yesterday he walked off the job and he's now threating me with assault charges - apparently I made him scared?!

Would be interested how your story unfolded.

He's left a proper mess but I'm done with him so gonna hire someone to clear the mess up and then sue him for the cost - fortunately I provided the contract in his name and the company making them wholly and severally liable.

We've just had a quote for a kitchen extension by a Greg Mazur who has a company called Windoor Ltd., registered as a new company in August.

I think he said he was from the Streatham area, but the company registered address is in Covent Garden.

Is there any way of checking if this is the same person?

Thank you
Shona

Hello Shona,
You can check director information - it should show his date of birth. This Greg Mazur lived in Streatham so it is too much of a coincidence that it would be different people. Needless to say, his old company is now being liquidated, even though he has not even followed that process thru as the liquidator he appointed has not been paid the whole amount so they are not acting on it (thus has been the case since July.

My advice - stay away!

We have fallen foul of Greg (Grzegorz) Mazur (Masur).  He is what could be termed as a pure Cowboy Builder.  The company is currently operating under the name Mirror Construction Ltd.  He has in the past worked under Windoor Group Ltd, and Great London Construction.

The work that is carried out is NOT of a good standard and borderline unsafe.  We know alot of people  who have had problems with this builder.  He starts a job and is very charismatic but please do not let that fool you.  He took money and didn't complete a job.  The bits his team did do needed to be redone at great expense.

STEER CLEAR AT ALL COSTS.
