Hello Gregory my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you.
I assume your insurance are refusing to pay out? Wont you have a receipt from the dates you purchased as a business?
NOT AS SUCH,SOME OF THE ITEMS WERE, IF I REMEMBER BUT BRONZE BIT AND OTHER ITEMS NOT THOUGHT TO BE OF VALUE AMONG THEM WERE NOT FOR RE SALE AT THAT TIME .
And the insurance company wont pay out without a receipt?
DO YOU WANT ME TO WAIT ?
I asked: And the insurance company wont pay out without a receipt?
NO YOU DIDNT READ MY FIRST ACCOUNT PROPERLY,THERE NOT MY INSURANCE COMPANY
You said you made a claim, you spoke to the insurance company over your claim?
Perhaps you can clarify and I can help
CAN YOU READ MY ACCOUNT AGAIN AND ASK ME ANYTHING YOU NOT SURE ON BECAUSE I THINK I HAVE MADE IT CLEAR WHAT THE CASE IS
Ok. I will take another look, please bear with me
THE POINT IS CHRISTIES ARE HOLDING AN ITEM THAT I HAVE TITLE OF ,AN INSURANCE COMPANY ARE CLAIMING IT IS THERES AS THEY PAID OUT ON IT IN1998,WE KNOW IT IS ONE OF THE SAME AGREED ,BUT DO I HAVE AT LEAST HALF OF TITLE AS OF THE LAW TERM
Sadly you don't have title. In order to sell something you must have good title, ie it is not stolen and you own it 100%. As the item has been reported stolen then you do not have good title, therefore you can not demand possession back.
But if you want the item back you can issue proceedings.
You would need to complete form N1
And form N16a
You are asking the court for an order that they 'deliver up' the item they claim is stolen.
The Judge will then consider the matter and decide whether to order that they deliver up the item to you. If they refuse they can be in contempt of Court and warned, fined or sent to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY CASE FROM WHAT I HAVE ASKED YOU
DO I HAVE ANY CLAIM TO THIS ITEM THAT CHRISTIES ARE HOLDING
If it is stolen and they have evidence then no, I do not think you have a claim. You do not have 'good title'.
But you can still bring a claim if you wish and I have outlined the procedure for you should you wish to do that
They must have evidence that it was stolen. No evidence then they can not withhold it
Does that help?
THAT HAVE PROVED BY HAVING A PICTURE OF THE ITEM THAT LOOKS THE SAME.BUT CHRISTIES HAVE HAD IT 3 YEARS AND SAY DUE TO LAPSE OF TIME I HAVE A SHARE IN THE PROCEEDS AT SALE
I HAD THE ITEM FOR 10 YEARS AND PUT IT IN A SALE HOWCOME I HAVENT GOT GOOD TITLE
Because you can never have good title if it was stolen.
But you need evidence it was stolen
THE INSURANCE COMPANY JUST SAY IT THE SAME ONE I TOOK THERE WORD FOR IT ITS NOT NUMBERED BUT HAVING TWO THE SAME IN THIS CONTRY IS UNLIKELY I WOULD AGREE BUT ITS POSSIBLE
It is possible for you to bring a claim yes.
But Christies would need to prove it was stolen
ok how would you suggest i put in a claim is it something i can do my self
Yes you can do it yourself. You need to ask the Court for an order that they 'deliver up' the the item
should i just go along to my local county court
To find your local one
yes thanks one more thing ,
the insurance company paid out 1000 on this ,but it turns out now its worth 3000 ,i did say 3 years ago i would be prepared to reimburse them there loss 1000,but they said no they would acept 3000,are they allowed to make a profit on this sort of case .
Well it is stolen so it should be if you do not get it back, that it is returned to the owner.
The insurance company or Christies can't sell it
the owner is not interested i was told
But the insurance company and Christies cant sell it
If the owner is not interested then you should get a Court order for delivery up of the item as we have discussed.
ok thank you i try that .
