Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Have you had a surveyor come to look at it yet and give a firm view please?
Sorry the sentence cut off.
You need to know if?
Sorry, I was in a cab and did not realize I sent this. I just check the survey and it does not include this information, so my mistake, I thought it did.
Ok - have you had a professional surveyor out to look at this particular problem?
Ok - this is the first step and what you should do.
This will tell you what the problem is and how it should be rectified.
Then you get a number of quotes, normally 3 for getting the work done.
This forms your loss
But the managment company is going
You should to write to the Landlord and set out your losses and ask for the work done or the cost of it within 14 days or say you will go to Court. Make sure you send this recorded delivery and keep a copy.
This is why you need to send this letter
If they refuse then you can issue proceedings which can be done online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by competing form N1 at: https://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
The Court will then issue the claim which will be sent to the seller and they will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce it. If the matter is defended it will be set down for a hearing. If the losses are £10,000 or less then it will be a small claim and you do not need representation.
You can then use the surveyor report and quotes to show a Judge that they are not doing the work despite of knowing about the problem
