Hi Alex,apologies,I'm a bit slow and not very good with computer stuff.I want to recover my costs for the trouble they caused by selling me something that didn't exist.I think that they've offered me £10k because it's the max I could process a claim for myself and they know that legal proceedings are expensive and time comsuming.If I took action could I expect to achieve full payment plus my costs and would a judge also consider compensating me for the time I spent sorting it out and the anguish I have suffered.
Hi Alex,the question was "do they have a defence"bearing in mind that they sold me something that didn't exist ?
It was shown on the plan attached to the transfer as existing,i.e. a drawn line from the site plan to a connection point,the connection point was shown to be on the land I purchasedbut it wasn't,it was two metres away on the neighbours land.
Can you please tell me what possible defence they would have
I'm not sure if the director knew but it was his groundworker in the presence of his site manager who told us that the drain had been stopped 10 feet short.Is ignorance a defence ?
Hi Alex,so they don't really have a defence,they sold me something that didn't exist.I have sorted the problem out and simply want to recover my costs.How much would it cost me to engage your services to take action against them ? That is if you undertake instructions in this way and want to act of course.
OK,many thanks for your help. Michael.
