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 any contract at all with them please?
How did you pay for the £1000 please?
I paid it in amounts over a period of time in cash but I have some receipts for some of it. which I have here as well.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund 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 refund 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?
Thank you for the information, but the guy is a one man band and he has nothing. As I have spent a lot of time since we started this in November 2013 the website was nearly completed, it was up on the internet , but isn’t anymore. What I really want is the website as it is nearly finished. To do this I need the access codes. The company who servers it is on are telling me that they are not allowed to copy them as it is against the law. I really don’t want them to copy them just transfer them to me. Have you any suggestion on this.
This means I go through the process that you mentioned above is that correct ?
Just one other thing, the guy who was designing my website was hosting it on 1 and 1 do I get the order against the wed designer. he might try and destroy it. before hand or do I get it against 1 and 1.
If the website is hosted he will have the files as well as the designer.
But its against the designer.
A Court would take a dim view if he then tried to dispose of them
Does that clarify?
