Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long ago did you agree to this?
OK thank you; thank you also for the attachments; please leave it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
I have looked into your query in more detail but unfortunately it is not something I can assist with due to the cross-jurisdictional issues. I will therefore ‘opt out’ and a colleague better placed to deal with the nature of your query should hopefully pick this up soon. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thank you
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Was it in writing it would be sold for a certain price?Did you not set a reserve?
The contract is not clear. In the contract does it set a minimum price or reserve?
In the contract does it set a minimum price or reserve?
Ok. This may be an issue if you did not specify a reserve on the contract. However I will outline the process of bringing a claim.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund 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.
Given the value of this then you would be need representation in order to bring a higher value claim.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes it does apply to Scotland. You may need to issue a paper claim as you are in Scotland.
You can limit it to £10,000 or less for a small claim
Does that clarify?
All the very best.
I understood the company was based in England so that is why I suggested you issue proceedings here due to the higher small claims limit.
Indeed yes. No you have 6 years to bring a claim.
