Hi Alex, In answer to your questions.
The 25 Year guarantee is written only.
I have not yet paid out and the £2200 is just a quote.
He is a sole trader
I can send the request asking him pay within 7 days but not that he make good the repairs himself as work is now underway. The structure was unsafe and needed to be made good. It was clear from numerous emails that he would not return.
Could you clarify, your paragraph starting
"I would note conceptually.." It seems an important point but I am not totally clear on what you mean.
"Obtaining a court order" is what is commonly referred to as taking somebody to the small claims court. Is that correct?
Once the court order is obtained, you say I can take enforcement action, what steps are involved and will this require that I work with a solicitor and will these additional costs be recoverable.
Thanks in advance...
Thanks Alex....My answer and hopefully my final questions below...
1) I believe he does own his own home.
2) Given the debt of £2200 and the assumption that he has assets of more than that and additionally probably the means to pay, which enforcement action would you recommend? and would it require that I use a solicitor?
