no, not necessary for live discussion. If I picked that option it was in error.

You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.

If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: or by completing form N1 and take it to your local County Court.

The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.

If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Nope, thats clear.
Please confirm that I have not been charged any more for this question, this was 'advertised' as a free question based on the payment for the Q, I asked you about the 'removal of a stubborn tenant'
Thanks and regards
