On what basis is he refusing, or is he just ignoring you please?

Customer:

both I have tried several time to no avail and I am living far away from Manchester. I had a friend who checked that the company still operate and are still in business the website cost me £1900 in 2005

Alex Watts :

Ok. What you need to do is formally write and ask for the website/code within 14 days or say you will go to Court.

Alex Watts :

If they refuse then you can issue proceedings in the county Court for 'delivery up' of the website and code

Alex Watts :

You need to complete form N1

Alex Watts :

The Court will send a copy to the other side and they can file a defence.

Alex Watts :

The matter will then be set down and a Judge will decide whether to make an order.

Alex Watts :

If the Judge makes an order for delivery up and the other side refuses it is contempt of Court and they could be warned, fined or sent to prison

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

I want to sue the company for the return of the website or the fees paid to have the website. there is a contract and their are in breach of that contract.
