Customer Question

I am now completing the section on the online claim that asks for - A short statement (maximum 1080 characters) of what you are claiming for and why.
would you please review my statement and advise / recommend how I can improve it
We operate a small B&B, Colthrop Manor Ltd
(the claimant). In June 2015 we were
approached by and subsequently negotiated a
contract with TSO / Traffic Safety Officer
Services Ltd (the defendant). Under the
terms of the agreement TSO were to have all
the rooms in the B&B (5 rooms) on an ongoing
basis at a discounted rate of £1500 per week.
In negotiations the defendant stated that
they needed the accommodation on a long term
basis as they had a 5 year contact to service
close to our location. The deal was made
subject to a minimum term of 6 months.
On the evening of Tuesday 1st September we
received a telephone call from Tony Pope, the
Managing Director of TSO, informing us that
their contract had been cancelled and that
they no longer required the accommodation.

Hi Alex

Thanks for taking this matter up again.

Ok, so just keep it that simple - just exactly as above and put all the detail into my witness statement yes?

erm...and that's all that's required? Just that statement and payment? I don't have to send anything to the defendant or supply witness statements?

What happens next then?

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Correct.Does that help?Alex

one last thing though - how do I sign the online form? it asks for my signature???

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
You type in your name. That's it.Is that ok?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Really! That's not a signature is it! Ok

But what happens next?

I will be out of the country from mid March to the end of April. Is that going to be a problem? Do I need to inform someone?

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
If it's defended you will have documents you need to complete. You should be ok for that and then just put in there dates to avoid for any trial.Alex
