Customer Question

2 years ago a gardener laid a cricket net at my house.
I have just received a letter from a corporate litigation service company chasing an amount of money that the gardener still has outstanding with the supplier of the cricket net.
The letter has his name & my address.
I do not know how to reach him as it was 2 yrs ago.
Does this collection agent have any case against me in this matter.
I called the supplier of the net (who has instructed this agent) & he says that he is not allowed to talk to me.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I assume you paid the gardner to lay the net and didn't order direct from the net company?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes exactly

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Then you don't need to worry, its nothing to do with you.
Your contract is with the gardner. The net company has a contract with the gardner. The dispute is between the gardner and net company, not you.
In law its nothing to do with you.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


can the net company have any recourse to the asset itself i.e. the net ?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
No. its a dispute between the gardner and them.
