Hi thank you for your message, who told you about the deposit?
Hi thank you for your message, I am afraid I shall opt out as I do not feel I can adequately respond to your query.
Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you with this.
You mean to buy?
Yes. I assume you put a deposit down and changed your mind?
Are you asking whether it falls under Consumer law?
You can try and sue for it back. I can tell you how to do that.
But it most certainly is excluded from consumer law.
You need to write a letter, set out your losses and request a refund within 30 days or say you will go to Court. This is called a pre-action protocol letter of claim. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy. You must give 30 days warning before going to Court.
If they do not refund 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 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n1-claim-form-cpr-part-7 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?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer, by clicking the button at the top of the screen. I am not paid for my time unless you rate. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
Well, it would be what is reasonable.
That is the only point you have really.
Does that clarify?
That is the question. One Judge may say one thing, another Judge another.
Its subjective and that is the risk of litigation
Does that assist?
