The premises was subleased at all material times and never intended for my trade at all as I was the intermediary for the Dubai Company and they paid all bills as evident and also the lease payments which were paid to the landlord by them, so just by having the Lease in my Name does that make me liable to pay?
Yes that was the basis the Court were going upon without giving any notice to my response, yes there is a contract with the Dubai company, and I never received anything until the recent hearing letter, as only recently which the council acknowledge too that they had received my personal details from the landlord..... there is strong case history behind my circumstances too, and I have scarcely been in the U.K also due to certain prejudices which after 4 and a half years I was cleared of as innocent, however, after my appeal if I proceed, what will happen and if the Crown upholds the magistrates position what will happen? I am to pay £14000 as my first installment on or by 14th Jan, followed by two monthly payments, would I still pay if I appealed or what would happen?, or would I await the outcome of the appeal, and what is your advise briefly upon the above, hopeless or then any prospect of real success.
have rated you thank you, so your basically saying it is hopeless to \appeal?
So what do you honestly advise/ suggest I do? circumstances and history is strong, but if you say faith in Justice, disappointingly I can not say I have any left! but am certainly not sure whether to leave it as in injustice or then respond?
how would you be able to have sightings of the case, I don't have anything apart from the demand letter and the sentence passed..... lease accounting for is clear landlord just wanted the lessee to be UK domicile and was reluctant to let it directly to the Dubai Company....
I did not get a response to my initial ? if I appeal whats the process? and what will happen? and if I lose what will happen?
