Yes, you can make a court claim, however, a more simpler process and effective method to solve a dispute would be to send a legal demand letter to your daughter's boyfriend, unless you have already.
Please let me know if you have sent a legal demand letter to her boyfriend as a preliminary court procedure.
The costs for a legal demand letter is generally in the sum of £500 and most disputes are solved at that particular stage.
However, the costs, even in small claims procedure, can easily exceed such amounts.
In case of need, the law firm that I am part of can send the legal demand letter and solve the dispute.
Alternatively, you can make a court claim for money online here:
If he has sold it, same principle applies, you make a claim for the value of the ring.
During the online process, you specify the amount that the ring was/is valued at.
If the value is £4200, you specify that amount plus all the court fees you will incur.
Thus, your court claim would be around in the sum of £4400-£4500.
I understand completely.
Don't worry, the matter will be resolved, you can make the court claim and you will win.
Yes, you will get the ring amount, the awarding of costs is at the court discretion, however, based on my legal experience, there is a high chance that the court might award you all further costs.
