I am owed £1000,00 by Crawfords Letting agent. All attemps

Customer Question

I am owed £1000,00 by Crawfords Letting agent. All attemps to get them to pay have failed. I have sent a court warning letter but no response. My dealings were with Crawfords but I saw a contract with another contractor and checked out the company reg number. It came back as Tidyfile Projects Ltd now dissolved. It dose not mention anything about Crawfords Lettings. Can I still sue Crawfords. All names, address, telephone number are the same. Crawfords are still trading and are advertising on a website. What are my legal rights as a sole trader ?. Many thanks Jason Whittle T/A Merlin Gas

Who exactly is your contract with?

Is Crawford is a limited company or a partnership or sole proprietor? you need to be certain exactly who you are suing. Clearly, it is not the company, which is in liquidation , or is it?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

My dealings were with Crawfords no mention of Tidyfile Projects. Nothing on any papers to show Crawfords is ltd, can not find them at companies house. It looks like they just shut down Tidyfile the report dose not mention anything about liquidation and no liquidators name appear on the report, Crawfords are still trading as letting agents,

I replied to you already!!!!!. My dealings were with Crawfords Letting. There is no mention of crawfords on the tidyfile report only that the company is doormant. It seems they just closed down as no mention of liquidation or a liquidators name. Crawfords letting is still trading same names, address, telephone number, they have a active website and are still advertising
