I have received statutory demand from my ex boyfriend who 4 years ago lend money to my father. We didn't have any agreement and money were transferred to my father bank account, not mine. Does he have rights to make me liable for my fathers dead and how can I despite statutory demand?

No he does not. You can apply to set aside the statutory demand.

You need to complete forms 6.4

And 6.5

Submit them to court who will list the matter for hearing. All you need to show is that there is a genuine dispute or defence, then it will be set aside.

But from what you have said, you do. It's not your debt.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?

Thanks for your feedback.
Is there any way to resolve the dispute without court hearing ? And would you advise me to get a lawyer assistance in this process or it this straight forward process that I could handle myself?Thank you

No Agi, if you dont set aside the statutory demand the next stage is bankruptcy.

So you need to apply to set aside.

Does that clarify?
