Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
You cant' remove a risk
If you issue a claim it is always open to someone to defend and put in a counter claim
Sadly that is their choice
Whether or not it would succeed is another matter all together
But you cant sadly stop someone putting in a counter claim
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I appreciate all the help you have given, I have actually paid for legal advice and although I know the advice is lawful and correct, I am tired of the other side playing hardball and leaving me with huge bills. Financially I would be better off giving them my company and also allowing them to short pay the rent. The problem is, I'm a man of principle and this is eating me away.
I guess I really just want to have a better idea of who's side the judge would agree with, the side that make false claims of which there have been over a dozen, all of which have been answered and who also have not paid their side of the agreement and whom have shirt paid rent or my side.
If you bring a claim they always have an opportunity for a counter claim
It is then a matter of evidence and who the Judge believes
You can't avoid a counter claim all together I am sorry to say
Can I clarify anything else?
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
