Could I have some help and recommendations on how I should proceed in fixing these issues done by a so called professional tiler that has since ran away with half of the payment and I can no longer contact him.

I supplied the tiles & tile trim, leaving him to use his choice of adhesive and grout. Walls are all new, as this is a new build house, and I fitted in the shower tray and waterproofed the shower area. All he needed to do was tile.

Problems (photos probably speak for themselves):
  • Tiles are not level (some were extremely bad and he has smashed these off and damaged the plasterboard)
  • Tile spacing is bad
  • Gaps between the tile trim and the tile is bad
  • Tile trim cut too short (I supplied more trim than required for the job, so there's plenty of trim left that he could have used)

I'm really not sure what I should/can do right now and it has been left unusable.
