Financial disputes usually arise when the parties disagree about the terms of a contract, or indeed whether there was a contract at all. It is important to remember that a verbal contract is as enforceable as a written one, though of course the terms may be more difficult to pin down.
On the other hand, your dispute may be about something completely different, such as poor building work. You will have expected your builder to perform the work to a reasonable standard and if he does not, you might have a breach of contract claim against him. The remedy for this can be a payment of compensation, or it may be that you want your builder to return to the site and complete the work that he was contracted to perform.
