Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The house price estimate is around £200,000 and he owns it
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 months ago.
Well, he is worth suing then. There is no way around it. The reality is that he either deals with it himself or instructs a solicitor. Many people cannot afford a solicitor. in truth, neither can she is she is using a no win no fee firm. They may not take on the case. They have to get past limitation although that is easier to do now than ever before. Also, if he has been convicted then it would be impossible to challenge the facts alleged in the civil courts I’m afraid. Can I clarify anything for you? Jo
