Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know how much the unpaid rent was?
When was the decision at Court?
around 10,000 rent - - -then 10,000 costs on top of it
also - - - the court "order" states .... before judge XX sitting at Durhams county court.....but the hearing was at "newcastle county court" - - Can that be used as a reason too ?
Well the fact the location is wrong is not in itself enough to appeal.
But if the company was in receivership then yes, this is a ground for appeal.
The court should NOT have been misled.
If it was then you can set the Judgment aside on this basis.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Another point - - -in the judges summing up of what she "finds",
there is clear evidence within the trial bundle that she was wrong to assume it - - Can that be a cause for an appeal ?Becuase she presumed wrongly ?
Yes, if the Judge made wrong findings of fact then that is a ground for appeal
What you need to do is get a copy of the transcript of the hearing.
You need to apply to Court for that. But the Court will only send it to approved transcribers.
But you need the transcript to appeal.
Does that help?
I have requested an appeal form and a transcript form from the court - the court have said that I may not be allowed to appeal at its past 21 days - - But as Im unrepresented I didnt realise the time limit - Can you help further with what I can say on the form to make sure they grant an appeal -
Well you can still appeal, but you need permission to appeal out of time.
You still need the transcript though, because no appeal Judge will consider an appeal without it
Great. Can I clarify anything else for you?
not at the minute - - -may get back to you when the forms come through the post,
