I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

What is it you want to achieve please?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I want to find if there is a time limit after a contract has finished that the main contractor can sue for LADs. I have instructed a debt collection company to collect a debt from a company I used to work for and in response they have threatened to sue for LADs on a job that I finished in July 2018 until now there has been no mention of their intention to do this either verbally or by post or email.

6 years under the limitation act 1980 from date of breach.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
