That's great news.
I contacted moneyclaim but they said I could not raise a claim via them because I am in Scotland and he is in England?
What should I do?
Thanks AJ, you have clarified this situation so well for me.
He lives in Leeds.
If you can tell me where to apply I will do this if moneyclaim still block my request.
Thank you so much for your assistance.
I will try the money claim site again per your suggestion but the person I communicated with said that both adresses must be in either England or Wales.
If this fails I will contact the court direct, is it just a small claims application I require?
I have prepared the recorded delivery letter now, per your guidence and have demanded the full deposit back and stated that if he fails to pay I will take him to county court. I have waited until today as this is now seven days since I sent the first recorded letter.
One thing that is niggling me is the service and tax on the car. I think I said before that he advertised the car with these but I then had to get him to agree to do this as he had falsely advertised it as having a full service history (when in actual fact it was overdue) and with six month tax (when in fact it was sorn at the time). Is a copy of his advertisement sufficient evidence against his claim? I am concerned that because I had to get him to comply with the advert that it may be misconstrued as a condition of sale when it was just what he said in the advert?
Hello again AJ,
I submitted my paperwork to the court and they have returned it saying that:
A claimant with an address outside of the jurisdiction of England and Wales can only issue when they have a solicitor within the jurisdiction acting for them, it does not appear you have a solicitor acting for you in issuing this claim and therefore it cannot be issued.
This seems ridiculous given the value of my claim, I am now going to have to pay more money out in pursuit of justice and yet the court may limit the expenses I can claim.
What do I need to do?
