Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know how much is outstanding?
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 refun 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 for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
So yes, you can issue small claims proceedings.
The question really is, is she legally obliged to pay her part of the 4 flats building insurance or can she sort her own out herself?
Are you still there?
I don't think you've answered the question I asking!
I've already done all of the above apart from send the papers off to SCC which is why Im asking for this legal advice
Alex, I have already done all of the above, I just haven't sent it to SCC yet because i wanted advice whether she legally had to pay or not?
We don't have proof that she has signed anything though, the previous owner can't find a copy, does that matter?
Can she get her own cover? does she has to show us proof?
So if we take her to SCC are you confident we will be awarded our claim?
Thats great, thanks for your help.
We sent the relevant information to the SCC and we have had a response from our neighbour. Is there a way I can attached a copy of the letter (rather than having to type it all out) to sent to you so you can advise us.
