Ok - you dont need to worry then. You can sue for your loss and damage
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 signed 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?
how do i stand on her tumble dryer as i now have it in my storage. and in writing to them , will this need to be a letter from a solicitor and if i take it to county court will that cost me because i have learnt in the past as they have legal aid there expenses get covered and i end up in debt and they will never pay me because according to them they have nothing.
You can keep hold of it but write and give 1 month to remove it or say that you will sell it and place those funds to credit the account.
You are entitled to charge storage to date for it
Does that help?
after they left my premises and had taken everything they then told me they wanted there tumble dryer but had not been able to take it at the time. I had changed the locks but they had vacated the premises and left me 1 of 2 keys they had.
Yes that is fine - if they had vacated then you can change the locks
but can i hold that tumble dryer against there want
Yes you can. Say you will get it once you are paid
