well each time I asked him for the money he did not say he did not owe it. We shared a flat together and he kept some of the deposit for any damage but he told the landlord that I left the flat in perfect condition and I have an email to this effect from the landlady.
I took out an extra credit card for him under my account and with his name so I have the statements for that showing his name and what he spent. in addition I have a breakdown which I emailed him and he did not deny he owed me. He is a police officer so I am sure he has the money to pay back.
I really do not want to have further contact with him as it was a bad break up and I have had no contact with him since.
As mentioned my friend text him last week asking for the remainder amount in full but he only paid 100 pounds. Will that text suffice? he did not reply to the text, he simply put the money into my account.
what type of information do I need to include in the procedure? Do I need to attach emails, text messages and credit card statements?
just to clarify my friend can send the email on my behalf without me having to send it? For example can she write the email from herself and state she is writing on my behalf?
Also what if he does not reply?
Do I need to notify him in the email I will take him to small claims?
Do I need to give him 5 days to reply or does it not matter?
one more question, I now reside abroad for work, but am a UK citizen. Can I file the claim in my friend's address?
