A Project Manager (PM) from Resiservices, was formally engaged for the subdivision of a property into 3 vacant lots in Perth WA. His contract warrants that he had the necessary skills and technical knowledge to undertake the works required. We agreed on progress payments for the subdivision, out of which the last one remains.
There have been issues and mistakes made by the PM at almost every step of the subdivision, including the Subdivision Application Submission, demolition, dividing fence, Watercorp land agreement was requested 7 weeks late, ignored the building easement requirements from Western Power which led to a 3 months delay, not following procedures with Western Power design works, titles not issued as instructed, etc. He has also been highly unprofessional and has coerced me to pay extra fees of over $39,000 which was never agreed for and unrelated to the land subdivision. He emailed all buyers of the lots and made defamatory statements towards me. List goes on..
I have emailed him requesting for him to fix his mistakes or I should be compensated for the losses incurred due to his faults, before final payment is made. Some of the mistakes have been made over 6 months ago and he still hasn't fixed them. His response (misleading statements, further threats) indicates that he is not willing to sort this out professionally, and threatens that he will take legal actions if he is not paid within 3 days.
Any thoughts on the above would be very much appreciated, thanks.
