Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.
You need to write a letter, set out your losses and request compensation within 30 days or say you will go to Court. This is called a pre-action protocol letter of claim. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy. You must give 30 days warning before going to Court.
If they do not compensate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n1-claim-form-cpr-part-7 and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value, you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
I was just following up to see if there is anything else I can assist you with today? If so, just let me know.
If not, then I am happy to have been able to assist you.
You can issue proceedings now.
Then if successful, you can get a charge on assets, including the hotels.
Does that assist?
No, I would do it now.
No, you can't sue for comment.
Issue proceedings now.
No, you won't have better position until you have a Court Judgment and have secured it on property.
If you have a Court Judgment that is not enough. You need to apply to secure it on property.
Does that clarify?
No. That is a separate method of enforcement.
You can do that at the same time
You can do this yourself.
I hope that helps
Yes that is correct you can just issue a claim now. If the asset is leased then you can or charge it as they do not own it. You can only do it if it is owned
I hope that clarifies
It makes no difference and sadly you can't speak to me directly, only through the site or request a callback
If you sue now and get a charge on assets, on that way protects you. I hope that helps
3. You can ask questions on new threads throughout the process
I hope that helps.
Yes emails are letter before action too
