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.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a payment 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 pay 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?
Thanks Alex, we're buying a house and expecting our first baby in may 2014, this money could do well to doing up a nursery and some much needed decorating!
Do we have to pay the county court a portion of the money we get back?
I will certainly give you a very favourable rating!!
when my husband was an employee of the company he invested £5000 of his own money in 2011 to buy computers and software equipment, should we file for these separately to in conjunction with this present issue. we've bee very gracious to them as they were our friends, but we feel as though we've been taken for a ride
they did agree to pay us this as well in e-mails which we have kept
Yes as long as you have evidence that will be fine.
Can I assist with anything further?
yes, one thing more, should we file for each claim separately or together as they are for different dates
Together, but itemise it out in the claim
ahhhh ok! brilliant Cheers! Bye
Thanks. Have a good weekend and dont forget to leave feedback!
Certainly! Have a good one too!
