Please let me know what you need to know about the small claims process.
Understood. It really depends. You can get a solicitor who can draft a witness statement for you - but it seems to me like a straightforward case so you may not need one. Whats the amount in question here?
I see. I would personally get a lawyer involved. All you need to do is to get a witness statement from your neighbour / possibly partner, and make sure that in your defence you mention the receipt and no warranty point.
This is nothing unusual. The judge will hear the case and will decide on balance on probabilities who is right here. As long as what you have set out above is correct, I see no reason why the judge would agree with the claimant.
Pleasure. Best of luck and many thanks for using our service.
