Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What reason is the person giving for not returning it please?
Was there ever anything in writing regarding the return of investment ?
they have so far given no reason, other than to say they are taking legal action to recover debts owed to them by other parties.
yes, my son has a written and signed paper regarding the hand over of the money and the reasons.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a p[ayment 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. Anything over £10,000 (and I note this is £90,000) you will need representation for any trial.
I would issue proceedings and see if the matter is defended. If not then you wont need a lawyer.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
can my son claim legal aid for representation
Probably not, because the rules changed
Can I clarify anything else for you?
no thank you, ***** ***** your time.
