Customer Question

Alex, after your advise, we sent the relevant documents to the SCC last week and have had a response from our neighbour but not sure what she is asking for. Can I attach a copy of the letter rather than typing it out, so you can advise us. Many thanks, Lyn

JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

Have you managed to read the letter yet?

JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

When can I expect a reply?

Alex Watts : Yes. What is it you want to know ?
JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

What exactly is she asking us for?

Alex Watts : But you are not a public body are you? You are simply a private group?
JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

thats right

JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

We are three individuals who own our flats and the 4 individual won't pay their share of the buildings insurance, this is why we are taking her to the SCC, reference our previous chats, and the letter attached is her response, but we don't understand what she is asking her for, so we need you to advise us on how to respond

JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

Lost power to laptop, I'm back now.

Alex Watts : Ok you don't need to worry,
Alex Watts : Freedom of information only applies to government bodies, such as council or a government department
Alex Watts : it does not apply to private companies or individuals.
Alex Watts : You can write back and say you are under no duty.
Alex Watts : As a small claim you only send documents on which you seek to rely upon 14 days before the hearing, nothing else.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything about this today please?
JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

Could you please do me a small answer paragraph to that affect that we can send to her. Do we also need to send a copy of her letter and our reply to the courts. In addition, am I correct in thinking that the courts will supply to her a copy of all the documents we have submitted to them prior to the hearing.

JACUSTOMER-2hrq6v0b- :

Are we obliged to provide her with any documents or details with regards ***** ***** buildings insurance although she has not been contributing last 6 years
