Hello Pritesh my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether you have a written contract and if so what does it say about delays? Also how much have you paid please?
Hi Alex, yes we do have a contract but it is very basic...
We have paid £15,000 in total
My website is www.diamond-boutique.co.uk
How much do you want to pursue damages for?
minimum as we have lost significant amounts
I would say we have lost over £20000 over the last month
If they do not refund 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 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 for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes one more thing please
Is there a case here or not
What happens in this type of scenarios
Yes I think you have some case. If they said it would take 6 months and it has taken a year then they are in breach of contract.
Clearly if there have been technical problems that is not your fault.
Does that help?
Yes also they went through a restructure etc which resulted in lack of communication and no progress from their side. We went to them as we wanted a professional company to build our site but we have had more issues then the one we built in-house.
This were the dates
Ok - that is not your fault and you can take action
Can I clarify anything else for you?
No I think that is it I guess...
I appreciate your help
