As far as law goes, you do have a legitimate claim, even if there is no proof in writing (provided that you can establish the fact that you worked there and did that work in particular). The problem is that in order to protect your rights, you would have to go to court, which is a lot of hassle and is likely to take a lot of time...

This happens to a lot of businesses. Even if you have a legitimate business paying taxes an SI, the courts take so long for small claims such as this that it isn't worth the wait or hassle.
As said, next time get half of the cost of the work and full cost of the paint etc first before you start.

If I were you I would print this man's name and address so everyone knows not to trust him. Sadly, I think it unlikely you will get your money. You must be careful in future and get a good deposit up front and get paid for the work you do as you go.

Regards, Victoria
