Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Please note there may be delays in responding as I am away helping other customers but I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may also need to ask you some clarifying questions to determine the legal position.
Thanks for your message, I appreciate it is important to you.
To legally get your money back, what you need to do is write him a formal “Letter Before Action”. In this letter you will need to state the amount you are seeking to recover and the reasons why. You will also need to give him a deadline to raise the payment by, usually it is 14 days in which to receive payment.
If payment is not received within 14 days, then you will need to issue a claim against him in the small claims court. You can do this by visiting this site https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim
Or you can do it by post by using form N1 which you can find here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n1-claim-form-cpr-part-7 and posting it to:
County Court Money Claims Centre
PO Box 527
I attach a template letter you can use, you will need to edit it.
I hope this helps. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.
I am glad I was able to help. Have a great day.
