Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Are they also based in the uk?
Thanks for your patience I have been stuck in Court. UK law does apply - they have agreed.
You need to write and set out your losses and request payment 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 pay 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.
If they are still in France you may not be able to issue proceedings online.
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 the contract is clear. I think its obvious its UK law.
Does that clarify?
If they fail to pay you can enforce it here or get a European Enforcement order.You can only claim Court costs against themDoes that clarify?
Correct. Yes you can do paper issue proceedings.
Same process. Does that clarify?
Correct. I think you have a decent chance Jeremy.
