Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did you breach the agreement please?
The tenancy agreement was with Company A but the business was better known by a brand name. The same two directors had other legal entities which used the brand name and these companies were registered at the same address. The staff were also the same people and there was no formal subletting. i.e the business was simply divided for accounting purposes.
Ok, you could potentially sue the Landlord.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a payment 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 pay 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. Over £10,000 then you will need representation for trial as there are Court rules and procedures to follow
