Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer. Is there a written contract between you and the builder?
How was the contract duration agreed?
Thanks. In that case there is on the face of it a breach of contact. If you can prove the loss of rental income by getting evidence from an agent that that is what you have lost then you can raise a simple procedure action in the sheriff court. This is done online from this link:https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/taking-action/civil-online-gateway/welcome2 and you do not need to go through a solicitor. I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
Who was your contract with?
I see no reference to a limited company on his website. The correct designation would be David Brown trading as Ashton Developments.
You’re welcome. I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything, I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question.
