Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. This is a complicated state of affairs as you have provided services that you were not instructed to provided. Technically speaking you have provided a service for which they have received a benefit and they should pay you for that service. Do you terms and conditions contain a set off clause? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. It will allow you to set off any money you owe then against any money they owe you. Are they currently demanding you forward the rent to them? Is there enough money there to cover what you are owed? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Unless you have the right to set off the money then you cannot just take it from the money you are holding on their behalf. Technically you should forward them the money you owe them and then sue them for services rendered. That said there is not going to be too much harm in with holding payment until you reach an agreement, if they tried to sue you, you could then just pay them. Have they made any demand for the money? Have you sent them an invoice? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. My apologies I have only just received. Can you confirm what claim has he actually made and the CL County Court, if the claim does not actually contain a figure? Are you defending the proceedings?
Hi thank you. Just to confirm do they not actually know how much money you are holding on behalf of the landlord? Have they provided proof that they are authorised to be acting on behalf of the Landlord?
Hi, My apologies - I am currently have some connection issues - I will opt out for some one else. Kind regards AJ
