Hello my name is ***** ***** 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.
Yes they should provide new quotes and indeed a new S.20 notice.
The S.20 notice can be served by post, it does not have to be by hand
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you Alex
I have a hearing on 9th of July. I had withheld a certain amount of my service charge for the reasons of the breach of the lease by Landlord. landlord issued a summons against me. I have paid all on the receipt of summons
However I made a counter claim against the landlord. I once had to change the date of the hearing as both i and my friend whose name is ***** ***** the lease but does not live in the flat were away due to work commitment.
my question is:
I am mentally not ready at all and drained and cannot appear at the hearing as I had to deal with the other problem witht he landlord for the external work and possible restraining order.
Would I be able to postpone the hearing since it is only one day left before the hearing?
Also I received the bundle from landlord's lawyers, and the barrister is the same one that I had an experience with in LVT about unreasonable charges. I believe of misconduct on his part. since they had changed the sworn statement of a porter to landlord favour in addition to other problems. could I inform the court that due to thsi misconduct and his previous behavior I will no appear while he is the barrister due to the past experience and his misconduct?
Thank you. Of course I need an honest answer. Actually the barrister knew the chair at the LVT hearing and was controlling the show by winking at the chair when he wanted to stop me from more questions from a witness or other reasons and the Chair would do so. It was also clear from the statement in the court that the case was discussed between the chair and the barrister outside and before the hearing started, but it seems it does not help me.
My question is if I have to appear could I let the judge know of his previous misconduct? although he did not change the statement he defended it as I mentioned it int the hearing and got a statement from the porter whose statement was changed.
thank you. Does stat dec help in this case?
the order is: 1- List application for 2 hour 30 minutes on first open date with parties to attend
2- case management Conferrence to take place immidiately after the hearing of the application to give such further direction as are appropriate
Also do I need to provide all my evidences in this hearing?
