I am sorry, but this is not a chat service. It’s an email reply board and therefore there may be a delay getting back to you because we have clients and travelling and other users to deal with.
Sometimes we will get back to you in minutes, other times it will be longer.
Any consequential loss like this must be “within the contemplation of the parties” and therefore it has to be reasonably foreseeable that these losses will be incurred.
You now need to put him on notice that unless he pays this money, then you will seek to recover the costs that you lose, from him.
BUT you cannot simply do that and let them in Iraq up. You are under a duty to mitigate your loss and I’m sorry to say that would involve putting in a new system. I’m sorry to say that’s the case even if it meant borrowing the money.
Therefore you would not be able to claim the rental of the room in total firstly because he may not be aware that you would lose all that rental and secondly, you cannot just sit by and leave it empty and thirdly, the room hasn’t been rented and it would be unfair for you to get paid in full for something that you had not done.
You need to find whether he owns his house and whether there is a mortgage on it. You need the deeds from the land registry.
You can get the title deed and the plan quickly and easily by using this link:
and you will have to pay 3 pounds for the title deed and 3 pounds for the plan.
You will then have them in minutes if not seconds.
They will show whether he owns it and with anyone else and whether there is a mortgage and how long he has had it and it will also show any other charges against the property. It will not show how much money is outstanding.
Just because you have instructed the sheriffs does not stop you making an application to court for a charging order against the property which will at least get you paid when he tries to remortgage or sell the property.
I believe that his claims are spurious also.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
