Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I clarify if you have been dealing with the individual personally or with him via his business - the limited company you refer to - please?
I dealt with the person himself, he has a repair shop at the address I gave to you.
So this was an arrangement between you and him outside of the ltd company business you refer to?
I was advised he had opened a new computer shop I am not certain if the y are at the shop or at his home.
Thanks. from what you say if on balance you were dealing with him in the course of business it is safe to assume that you were dealing with him via his business rather than personally. However if there is an element of doubt you may consider if necessary a claim against them both - i.e. his business and him personally.
If he has failed to return you property despite written requests this amounts to a breach of contract and potentially a breach of the Torts (Interference with Goods) Act.
I would say that it s he via his business
If you have not already done so consider a written request for the return of the items within say 10 days failing which you reserve the right to issue proceedings against him in the county court for the return of the items or failing which their replacement value. You would need to issue against the correct person as above - him and/or his limited company.
The simplest way to issue proceedings is by using www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
Is there anything else I can help you with?
