Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Does this letter threaten legal action if you do not pay the money back?
what does it say then?
it is just a statement of account but does say it is due
Is it from the partner or is it from a solicitor?
have you responded or does it ask for a response?
i have not responded i wanted to check my position first
no problem, please give me a few minutes to prepare my answer.
Hi for most breach of contract claims there is a limitation period of 6 years. This means that you should either not respond at all or if you do want to respond say that you do not owe the money and he cannot recover it due to the Limitation Act 1980 as you have correctly identified.
If he does try to take action against it you can use the act to defend the claim.
If you have any further quesitons please ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
Should i send a letter as laid out on the Act's web site,
Yes if there is a model letter on the web site it is a good idea to use it.
O.K. thanks for your help.
