my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Yes contracts can be oral, written on paper or email
You need to write and set out your losses and request a 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 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://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdfand 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 .
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
Apologies late reply.
Thank you reply but I really wanted to know, from a solicitors point of view, whether I had a very good chance of winning as I can't really afford to loose.
Yes you have a chance of willing, but remember no-one can give you a 100% guarantee.
