Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello Richard my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you received a letter of claim or a County Court claim form please?
Who signed the contract, was it J and Mrs B?
Have you filed a defence?
Ok - I would provide a reply and defence saying:
1. The contracting parties were Mrs B and J who acts as agent. No contract has been signed between Mr B or Mrs B and (you).
2. Therefore the Claimant has no locus and is put to strict proof.
That is all you need to do. If the Judge considers at directions stage (which is when the claim is case managed) there MAY be a case to answer then you could counter sue J and bring them into proceedings as well
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes because that is who the contract is with.
It is possible if they were acting on your authority and behalf that there could be a claim from Mrs B against you.
But as it stands Mr B is not a party to the contract.
As for a CCJ, dont worry, even if you do lose, if you pay within 30 days any CCJ is cancelled anyway
Happy to help Richard, good luck
