Hi Jo, the garage is not still trading, after the fallout of the mechanics arrest etc it seems the dispute started with the "other party".
I'm hoping to have the money returned by the mechanic, as he via his dad has always maintained he will. I know it sounds daft paying him but as I said I had no reason to doubt his integrity at the time. It has been over 10 months since the payment so I'm at the point where my good will is running out and am obviously wondering what legal avenues may be open.
As far as I can remember they were a limited company, I may have some paperwork somewhere from the previous year, but am not sure where.
No again it was stupid of me but I paid the money for a part the mechanic was ordering. I did not get any sort of invoice. They knowthat I paid the money and have never denied that I did and there is obviously an audit available from my bank to his if required.
No they are not still in business due to the fall out that the mechanic had with his partner.
Thanks for the advice, just one final question, would a letter from myself suffice, or would you suggest a letter from a solicitor?
