the Claim was for in the region of £700K, the court has given in favour of the claimant at just under £1 million. (I have a friend writing the questions for me as I do not read and write) i have had problems with Council not acting on instructions and missing opportunities to appeal at every stage of this and the pre-ceeding case, the result is a total loss of my property and livelihood, which is catastrophic
both my own counsel and my own solicitor did not follow my instructions and gave advice which contributed to the court finding against me and my sister
The court judgement being made absolute was on 10th June, the previous hearing was in March this year
I am asking if there are any special considerations afforded to people who are unable to read and write as they are at a significant disadvantage even if they are represented. This is the second case that has resulted from a solicitor error, which has been compounded by further solicitor errors, which I do not believe would have happened to someone who was able to read the documents themselves, I have to take everything on trust and it seems that I have been mistaken in trusting both solicitors and councel.
Yes the appeal was also on 10th June, the Judge said I could not appeal as to make an appeal would put the claimant at a financial disadvantage as the appeal would divert my funds from the claimant.
