£1,100 as no arrangements were ever made and no request for me to do so
They were very heavy handed and just took me to court
Are you waiting for something off me as this page states awaiting customer action
Hello are you still there?
There was no arrangement set up. I asked them to do some work for me and paid a thousand pounds up front, they then asked me for £500 for a solicitor to attend a meeting with the council. As nothing was resolved by my solicitor and he left the firm, I carried on dealing with the problem myself and resolved it.
The solicitors then sent me a bill. When I asked why I hadn't been informed that there was money building up they said it was common practice and that I had to pay it. I disputed it saying I wasn't happy about it as I had no idea there was another bill to pay. I never received any notification. They took me to court and I was ordered to pay, as I had no means to pay them they applied for a charge to be put on my house. That was a few years ago and now they have asked me to pay. I am in university on a full time course so have offered £2.00 a month which has been refused
I was asked me to pay the whole amount and when I said I couldn't afford to, the solicitor's firm applied for a charge on my property which was approved in court
Yes. But does the original Court order say you have to pay the whole amount?
