I will be assisting you today.
OK, so from what I have read, do you dispute this?
I note you have made a Phone Call request but the payment has failed for some reason. You can try again and follow the on screen instructions.
Unfortunately I cannot see what is happening on your end. Would you like to try again? Alternatively, we can continue through this chat at no extra cost.
Yes, no problem at all.
So do you dispute this matter with your ex-Landlord? What happened?
I'm sorry to hear that. OK, were there any provisions in the tenancy referring to works to the property?
I see. Just to confirm that the Landlord is claiming for this as a debt from 8 years ago?
Yes, ok so the work was all done 8 years ago and your ex-Landlord is only just now claiming for such things which were taken away?
As a claim has been issued by your ex-Landlord, you must respond to it. Please do not ignore this claim as it could result in a CCJ being issued against you.
Hello, sorry I am just typing a response for you now.
You can defend the claim by either disputing it in full or partially. You should have received a reply form along with the Court papers?
You must respond to the claim within 14 days of service of the Court papers.
You can ask the Court for extra time should you wish to consult with a solicitor.
I wouldn't be able to say for certain without knowing the full facts. Although not necessary, I would advise a personal appointment with a solicitor, hence, why a local solicitor is ideal, to allow you to see the solicitor in person and to explain all the intricacies of your case. I would ask for a free interview with your local solicitor and also to see if they are prepared to work on a "fixed fee basis" to help you. Fixed Fees we will at least give you certainty in terms of cost and also allow you to budget for the litigation.
It's a pleasure.
