Hi, I'm Lea
I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. How can I assist you with this?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
I note that you have posted in another thread - can you respond here please.
Yes, I read that on the other thread - I am still not clear what your legal question about it is?
Your difficulty in defending this is that you knew there was a tenant in the property and you falsely ticked the box to state that the flat was empty. The person purchasing the property was then led to believe that they were getting a vacant property when instead they ended up not only with a tenant they did not want, but a tenant who did not pay the rent either.
Of course, if you choose to defend it, then if you lose you will also likely be ordered to pay the claimant's costs. At present you could possibly negotiate the amount they want. I strongly suggest you take all the paperwork to a local solicitor so that they can review everything appropriately and help you to either compile a defence or start negotiations with the other side. I don't suggest you just agree without letting a solicitor review all the paperwork first.
I trust that has answered your query in an accessible way. If you have any new questions, do feel free to mark them for my attention by putting FORCustomerin your subject heading.
Thank you for using Just Answer.
