Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. If the damage cost £500 to repair then the dog owner is responsible for this. You would be entitled to commence a small claim against the dog owner. Do you have their name and address? Do they have any money? Have you been paid out by the insurers?
Hi, Thank you. If you know where this individual lives, then I would start by contacting and informing him of the damage caused. Send him a copy of the repair bill and offer him 7 days to pay. If he does not offer to pay you can commence a money claim here
Hi, Thank you. If that is the case then I would give him a 7 day warning before commencing action. If he still refuses to pay then you can use the Money Claim procedure. Do you have an invoice for the repairs? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. You do not need to send it to him again, but you will need the invoice as evidence to show the court that you have suffered a loss as a result of failing to control his dog. Kind regards AJ
