Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
I assume you know who the buyer was?Alex
Ok, in that case you need to file a defence and bring in the buyer as an additional Defendant. So the company is suing you, you counter sue the buyer of the flat.
A Judge will then sort it would in Court. But in any event if the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim anyway.
So you should defend and counter claim against the buyer.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Yes you are because its in your name.
But that is why you need to counter sue the buyer.
Does that clarify? Alex
No. You are the named Defendant, you then you have to counter sue the buyer. That is the way it has to be done sadly.
No, then you are ok. But in law they dont have to withdraw against you.
In case they dont you must file a defence and counter claim against the buyer.
Does that clarify?Alex
You need to do it now when you get the claim form.
If you have filed a defence then you need to apply to the Court to add a party.
Yes that is fine. Can I clarify anything else for you?Alex
