Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
May I ask for now what type of tenancy you have and what you want to achieve?
Its an assured shorthold tenancy agreement. I want to receive all that I believe I should be legally entitled to under the agreement
Yes but they want to leave or compensation?
No they don't, at this stage ,want to leave so what are the options re compensation?
OK - they need to get quotes for getting all the work done - this forms their loss
You need to write and set out your losses and request the work done or payment 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 do the work or pay 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?
where do I stand if I deduct some of the loss from the monthly rent? Say if I have to pay for 3 nights local car parking at £11/night and I deduct £33 from the monthly rent?
You cant that is a breach of tenancy and you can be evited.
* evicted *
You can ONLY ask for payment and then sue if it is not forthcoming'=
Does that help?
