Primarily I'm asking about small claims in general, can they be re-submited or can cases be re-opened. (independant of the details you ask for)
I had a tenant renting a studio apartment from me under a six month assured short hold lease, he had been in property for six months and had then renewed the lease.
he stopped paying rent because he said there was no hot water, I fitted a new boiler. ... he still wouldn't pay. Later environmental health visited and said the temperature was inadequate.
Thnx for your reply
I'm a bit dyslexic (never officially diagnosed) and was getting ready to attend on the 20th at 10:00 when I realised I should have been there on the 10th at 2:00
It may be all down to wording but I think I am right in saying the tenant hasn't counter claimed, he has just given the water temperature as a defence (I have no idea if the water heater was even turned on on the day the environmental officer attended)
but I digress the two parts of my initial question were:-
--- can it be re opened - (some times it can be possible)
--- can I start all over again by starting a new claim?
