Can a project manager demand more money if he has under priced a job?

My partner has been converting his 5 bed house into 6 flats for the past 9 months and is almost complete but his project manager has run out of money and keeps demanding more otherwise he will pull out of the job and so will his workmen because they arent being paid which one is threatening to do now. Should he see the citizens advice? Please advise.

Without a formal contract, yes. With a contract, probably not.

With no written contract, it's the wild west. With a written contract - No. If he made changes during the contract - Yes.

If you made a variation order on the works since the contract was signed, then yes, he is entitled to the extra expense, cancellations, materials, programming etc.
