Hello and thanks for requesting me.
If the contract was with your partner and you corresponded, that is all you did.
You acted on behalf of.
But you are not a party to the contract.
I am very sorry as I know you want to take the lead.
But you can still represent in Court with permission
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I also paid. Does that make a difference?
Sadly not. The contract was with your partner.
I am sorry.
You could apply to the Court to be a joint Defendant, but you can't be sole Defendant
Does that clarify?
yes - how do i apply to be joint defendant - can i do that at cmc or do i need to do that beforehand?
I mean - joint claimant
You can ask at a CMC
The Judge can then order that you are added
Does that help?
