Hello Lewis my name is ***** ***** I remember this.
Did you defend the Court claim?
Well done an acknowledgement of service and ticked box 1 - that I intended to defend all the claim.
What would you recommend?
I would file a defence.
Saying why you dont owe it based on our previous discussions and you need to put the words: "Save for any admissions made above the Claimant is put to strict proof."
This means the onus is on them
Does that help?
I have put this together as a defence, do you mind checking over it?
Save for any admissions made herein the Claim is denied for the reasons set out below and the Claimant is put strict proof.
The Defendant will contend that the Claimant didn’t fulfil his obligations for the services undertaken. The Claim for £5,185.00 is denied and the Claimant put to strict proof.
Paragraph 1 is admitted and we defendant will contend that the account with the Claimant operated under the claimant understanding that they would undertake all the work to recover the debt.
Regarding to the remaining particulars of claim, no admissions are made and the Claimant is put to strict proof
The law states a person (or a company) is entitled to a reasonable fee work done. Therefore Wise & Co are only entitled to their fee, if they actually done the work. On this instance Wise & Co. never actually did the work completely they were enlisted to do.
The company had to do the majority of work to secure the debt.
This can be demonstrated by the fact that Wise & Co are unsure of the final amount secured and they won’t demonstrate what work they actually did.
Yes that is very good and you are fine to file and serve this.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
