Hi thanks for your question.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can help with this.
No, it means I can talk to you now and give you answers to your questions.
I can answer your questions on this now.
Okay, to recover your deposit, if he doesn't pay you back, then you would have to sue him in the county court. You can do this easily online now at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk.
About the second part, damages for the breach of delivery of your goods, can you tell me whether he actually has the sofa or whether he took it at all?
Then you can sue him for the value of those items too. You can do this in the same claim form that you use online to claim the deposit back.
For the sofa, you can instruct somebody else to pick it up and bring it to you and charge that cost to him, recovering it via the online claim form that I mentioned above.
You just fill in the forms on the screen. Then the court serves the claim on the ex-landlord for you. It will tell you step by step what you need to do. So long as you're claiming less than £10,000 it's a very easy claim to do procedurally. It's in the small claims system.
You're better off doing this yourself for the small sums involved.
Once you fill the forms in online, the court will serve the papers within days, and then it depends if he tries to fight it. If he does, it could take 4-5 months. If he doesn't fight it, you will win within a few weeks.
No, 5 months ago is fine - you have 6 years to sue for this.
No, it's really easy for this type of claim using the online claims system.
You're welcome. Are you happy with the service this evening?
