    A builder has demolished a £475,000 detached property while its owners were on holiday after a dispute over money.

    The house in Stoneygate, Leicester, has been left without a roof and scattered with rubble after the tradesman decided to undo the work he had already carried out.

    The 40-year-old owner of the house, who bought it last year, said that he and the builder fell out over a £3,500 bill (about 1.5m).

    He said: ‘I bought the house last year. The builder started in February and we wanted lots of work done so it could become our family home for six of us.

    ‘We wanted a two-storey extension, a new roof, new wiring and for it to be more environmentally-friendly. Unfortunately I picked the worst builder.’

    He said that after refusing to pay the builder £3,500 (about 1.5m) who then left the building in its current state before getting the scaffolding removed.

    The owner said: ‘I had gone on holiday and was 200 miles when it all happened on Tuesday.

    ‘I’ve contacted the police, who said it was a dispute and not a criminal case, and I’ve emailed Trading Standards.

    ‘I’m still on holiday so it’s difficult to sort out from here.’

    A neighbour has since said that the building work had left the residential street (pictured) in a mess and that it had also ruined the pavement

    A neighbour told LeicestershireLive the building work had left the street a mess. They said: ‘The work had been going on and there was scaffolding up and it all had planning permission.

    ‘Then people noticed the builders starting to remove things and demolish the work that had been done.

    ‘The neighbours are really upset with how it looks and the fact it has also ruined the pavement.’

    The owner said he would contact Leicester City Council about the pavement when he returned from holiday.
