Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
How much does she owe you back?
hello, she owes me 400 pounds
Okay - the best thing to do is to issue proceedings online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
It's cheap and fast to issue court proceedings this way, but obviously, you should write/email the landlord first demanding it back and telling them that you're going to issue court proceedings if no reply or not paid back.
I have send her a text message where i asked her to send me money back within 5 working days, she ignored this message and didnt text anything back. I also texted her a day ago, saying that as she ignores my messages and calls, i will fill in a form for small claim court. She ignored this text message aswell.
I didnt write any official letter tho. It is everything in text messages.
Do a letter - always best to have that.
Then, if not paid back within 10 days, you can go ahead and issue the claim.
Official letter thru post or email will be enough?
it is already 10 days passed since
Email is enough.
I know, but do the formal email giving her at least 7 days then.
What should I write in this letter exactly?
Just say you refer to the text messages and that she refused to give the money back. Tell her why she owes it you and then insist it be paid within 7 days, failing which, you will commence a court claim against her for repayment.
I already texted her on 25th of Jan (money from the account were taken on 17th of Jan) : could you please tell me when will you send my 400 pounds back? If you ignore my message or don't give me a call back tommorow morning I will fill in a form to small claim court.
should I still give her a letter and 7 days?
Oh I see - in that case, you could just go ahead and issue.
She also is still holding my deposit of 500 pounds. Agency can't give it to me without her permission, however she is not giving any unswers to them aswell.
Well, in that case, then you add that to your claim amount
500 pounds you mean?
I texted ''my deposits'' about it, as it has been protecvted with them, should i leave that with them or should i add this amount to case?
No, you will need to sue the landlord for that too.
Alright, thank you. will do that then
Okay - thank you, XXXXX XXXXX luck - hope it sorts quickly.
