what form of "representation" do I have to make. Is an appearance in court necessary parties.how long do these matters normally take to lodge and be heard by the courts? Does it matter in which court/county I lodge this case?
I live in London and the tradesman and the property are in Derby would I still use London? When making my claim against the tradesman can I include further expenses incurred outside of the sums already paid to the tradesman ie locksmith in order to gain access to my property as tradesman didnt return my keys; costs of travel to the property etc
