Alex Watts : How did you pay the builder please?
I payed my builder with cash and made sure that he gave his signiture
Alex Watts : He has a duty under Section 13 of the Sale and Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 to act with all reasonable skill and care. Clearly he did not.
Yes I know this, but how should i proceed with to get my money returned?
yes I know this already but howshould I proceed how can i get my money back
Alex Watts : You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy. If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court. The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
What would Trading standards be able to do?
Alex Watts : They might be able to investigate and prosecute. But to get your money back ideally you need to get a court judgment
Alex Watts : But if you are a pensioner you may get fee remission anyway.
Free remission from whom and how ?
Alex Watts : the court by filling in a form.
