He wants paying after 15years?
how has this been presented to you?
Under the Limitation Act 1980, he only has 6 years to pursue a debt from the time when the debt was last acknowledged. That 6 years would be either when the money was due to be paid or if you had made payments or agreed that you would pay, when the last payment or last suggestion that you agreed to pay was. If you haven’t paid anything for a long time and more than 6 years, then if he does issue legal proceedings you have a defence that “the debt is statute barred as it is over 6 years old, under the provisions of the Limitation Act 1980.
