FAO: Vineet S
Could my previous actions (email complaints etc) not be considered as pre-action protocol?

Hi there,

Your previous email was for them not to proceed with the debt collection.

Pre-action protocol is for trying to resolve the issues out of court , or before approaching the court regarding the dispute.

letter before claim is part of pre-action protocol, where you mention to the other party that you would be constrained to take legal recourse if the requisite action is not taken within the given time.

Understood, thank you. So I will write a Pre action letter and contact the financial ombudsman service. Does it matter what order I do that in?

No, you have to send letter before claim for the small claims court proceedings.

I can do the above letter and use the FOS in parallel?
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Or should I speak to the FOS first?

Try FOS first then take the legal route.

Got it. Thank you very much.

My pleasure, thanks again and all the best.
