Brick Work - Side Steps ?

Going to have a brick side steps installed. There is an old stone / cement structure that was as old base for steps. After tearing out a wooden set of steps. The old structure is very old 50 years plus Do I remove the old structure and install a whole new base or build around the old base ? If the contractors use the old base do I take off from the install price? Would it not be the right thing to remove all the old structure and start new? Or the contarctor is doing a bad job? How do you know there using old bricks than new ones ? Any opinions thanks
