No. They came uninvited. Hence the police call and official warning for criminal damage.
Yes - That is correct.
That's great! My only concern...
Obviously if it brought it to the small claims they would need justification that a new door is needed.
As the door can be secured and there no "significant damage" IE; only a small gap in the bottom right when pushed hard - Would I even stand a chance of claiming the money back?
Just because he admitted and got a police warning for criminal damage does not stand as anything - I believe.
Technically, I suppose there is no proof that is was said person who damaged the door enough to warrant it needing replacing?
The person would just say further damage must have been made after the fact.
Last question and then will rate...
If I can show damage cost - link him to the damage - I would more than likely win for repair costs, no matter how minor the damage to replace the door?
Do the repairs have to be done first before he pays or will quotes be sufficient.
