I explained in detail in the text I sent you that the judge asked my son to prove he contacted the Landlord and ad he could not show proof at the hearing could not accept that he did so.
Yes I needed to clarify that it was raised.
So your son wants to issue a claim based on matters that were raised before a previous Judge - have I understood that correctly?
The main reason for the claim is for the return of his deposit plus the £935.00 paid to the Landlord by Council. He has paid the full amount of the judgment to the Landlord. The previous Judge did no allow his Claim on the basis that he could not prove that he informed the Landlord that the boiler et.. was not working.

You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compensate 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://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-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?
Just to add. The claim is:
1) The deposit
2) Breach of contract
3) Breach of the Landlord and Tenant Act (heating and hot water)
certainly new about the boiler etc. from that date onwards. The Counter claim in the first case was for not placing the Deposit in a scheme, which the Landlord showed the judge she did. The Judge accept the Landlord word that she sent the Certificate to my son by email. I hae requested copy and t no proof has been provided.He now intends to ask the Court to rule bearing this in mind
