Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is anything in writing about what the condition would be like when you were due to move in?
If you are going to move out you need to do it now. The longer you leave it, the harder it is to claim fundamental breach of contract.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say 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://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and 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?
no. Fundamental breach means instant move out and claim against them.
Does that clairfy?
few days yes, but not weeks.
