Bad plastering job?

Hello, we recently had 4 windows replaced in our lounge bay window. They sent a plasterer to box it all in, and then a carpenter to fit the mdf windowsills. Once these were in we noticed that the window sills were all different heights and also on a slant. We have also recently noticed that one of the walls is not straight (if you put a spirit level against it vertically there is a big gap at the top.) We've been told by the window company that the plasterer had a really tough job with the wall as it's an old victorian house. My question is, should we expect walls to be unevenly plastered and window sills to be at different heights because of the age of the house? We have yet to pay the final instalment of the bill.TIA.

If using the level must be right in all points of the wall without gaps, either using Vernichi,horizontal or diagonal

Hi if the walls were slanted and not straight originally and then just skimmed which is only 3mm thick it won't straighten out the walls it is just to give a smooth finish for painting. The window sills shouldn't be a problem getting level as they should of stuck plasterboard around the reveals of the window and the sill but without pictures it's hard to advise. Thanks Lee
