Banking tycoon Sir Victor Blank has been ordered to pay a tradesman more than £4,000 for work carried out on his home after refusing to settle the bill.
Roofer Joe Loveridge, 48, filed a lawsuit against Sir Victor in March claiming for work carried out on the roof of the former Lloyds Banking Group chairman’s Hampstead Garden Suburb home last summer.
Last week, Sir Victor, 70, was served with a county court judgement (CCJ) ordering him to pay the £4,350 bill in full to Mr Loveridge, on the grounds he failed to submit documents in his defence in time to meet a 28-day deadline.
However Sir Victor, who had described the workmanship as “appalling” told the Ham&High he submitted the forms in time, but they had been “mislaid” by county court officials.
He said he was expecting the CCJ to be reversed and expected a future hearing to be held.

Last June, Mr Loveridge carried out a repair on Sir Victor’s roof after it was damaged by a falling tree from over the road.
A surveyor who reviewed Mr Loveridge’s work at Sir Victor’s house said the roofer, whose name appears on a list of recommended contractors compiled by the Suburb trust, was “experienced” and had a “good reputation” with the trust.
