Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What is it you want to achieve ?
Just to be clear this agreement was back in 2009?
Ok - its bad news I am afraid. You had 6 years from 2009 to bring a claim for breach of contract.
As its over this time sadly it is statue barred under the Limitation Act 1980
You cant sue or take action because of the time that has elapsed.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
1. No I think it dates back to 2009 and I dont think you can claim. But if you want then I will outline the procedure.
You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compesnate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes its date of breach.
I have outlined the process above of what you need to do to seek action.
Does that clarify?
Potentially yes. Its open to argument and I think the dealer may run the statute barred defence.
Does that clarify? Alex
Correct 2017 would seem a reasonable argument.
No it does not come void - does that clarify?
