Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How much money do you need to pay?
OK thank you for your response. Leave it with me for now and I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you as soon as I can. Please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you
Many thanks for your patience. Whether you pay or not is up to you to be honest. Refusing to pay them will mean that the ball is now in their court and they can decide whether to take this further or not. They cannot force you to pay unless they go to court and win. There is however no guarantee that they will ever go that far and even if they did – the risks are relatively low for you. That is because any claim would go to the small claims court and even if you lost you would only have to pay the amount they were after, plus court costs which will only be £150-200. You will not have to pay their lawyers fees, which means that worst case you would only pay what you refused to pay, plus a little bit extra on top. You can therefore consider whether to just take the risk and hope they never actually go as far as court and simply continuing making threats and demands until they eventually just give up.
