Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What would you lik to know about this today please?
Sure. Do you want to know if you can claim these costs of the first builder?
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund of those additional 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 refund 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.
It makes no difference if the 1st builder has retired, the claim is against them
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
6 years from the date work was completed by 1st builder
Does that clarify?
Yes that is correct. Just the extra costs
100% of that amount. Does that help?
Its up to you. If your expenses wont change then you can sue now.
If the ltd company paid then really it should be ltd company that sues to get the money back.
Its not your money, it belongs to the company
Sure. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance!
You can represent the company
Does that help?
Yes you can get a Solicitor if you wish,
If you win then you can claim those costs back
