Alex Watts : my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : To confirm they removed the railing?
Yes the railings were removed on 4th November 2014. A local builder was used employed by the freeholder - my landlord. They left the railing laid to one side on the roof space idle now.
Alex Watts : Do you know the cost of putting right?
No but I am keen to discover this. I have spent some time looking at websites but haven't made any appointments yet. The builder who removed the rails does not do the required work to replace them. He suggested a metalworker. I don't know any of this sort.
Alex Watts : Ok. I would get a number of quotes to get the work done, this forms your loss.
Alex Watts : You need to write and set out your losses and request the do the work or refund the cost 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
Alex Watts : If they do not 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.
Alex Watts : 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.
Alex Watts : If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation .
Alex Watts : Can I clairfy anything about this today please?
thank you. Would you suggest that I request the freeholder pay my losses or the Estate Agents?
Alex Watts : Freeholder.
Alex Watts : Does that help?
