Alex Watts : How was the £1000 paid please?
Hello Alex, thank you for answering and I understand your position.
The £1000 was paid directly into my clients account by bank transfer. There were no identifying details on my clients bank statement to confirm who the payee was but it was believed to be from Freshwater as my client had only a few days before chased up payment.
Alex Watts : Who is named as the parties on the contract please?
This AGREEMENT is made the 7th Day of November between FRESHWATER BEACH HOLIDAY PARK (hereinafter called the Management) and Mitchell Harper (hereinafter called the Artiste). "
I have a copy of the contract if it is easier to send to you.
Alex Watts : No that's ok.
Alex Watts : Well the contract is clear.
Alex Watts : This states freshwater.
Alex Watts : And the employer is vicariously liable for actions of their employee
Alex Watts : This means that freshwater are liable.
That too is my understanding
Alex Watts : You should pursue back the remaining balance, either by letter or through the county couy.

Alex Watts : A contact is a contract
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
