Welcome to JA.

I am sorry to hear about situation.

Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.

You are still within the window but only just given the 6 year limit is in 2 months.

Therefore i strongly recommend you instruct a commercial solicitors advice in respect of bringing court action which is very close the limitation.

Do you understand what i have stated so far?

Do you understand

I do but I would prefer to try there a time limit for that,
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
I have had advice from CAB, have filled in most of forms, but have always felt stressed, as the experience 2015/6 was intimidating. I cannot afford a solicitor, so simply wish to know if there is a time limit on trying ADR route?
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** try CAB.
Expert:  Anthony Chendo replied 19 days ago.

Ok, you can try CAB. That said the link below takes you to price comparison for lawyers. Here you can find a solicitor that suits your budget.

There are different types of ADR, and some don't have a time limit but the one time limit you should keep to is the deadline to start court action which is 22.01.2022.
