No this was not mentioned in any email correspondence, or on the phone.
The deposit was given on the 21st August.
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?
I changed my mind and postponed the starting date of using the room. Now on the 9th of September I sent an email to inform him that I was no longer taking the room for professional reason. The reason being that I decided to stay with my present employer. But according to your answer above, It looks like I am in my full right to obtain a refund for the deposit?
Yes you have a claim to get a refund
Does that help?
