Judges Demand

Be Careful What You Wish For

Published On: 11th August 2014

We can report that we have successfully recovered just over £8,000.00 from a Private Individual on behalf of a Builder in relation to products and services supplied by our Client.

We made direct contact with the debtor and supplied them with full evidence of the claim and outlined our Clients intentions to pursue this matter further if necessary.

The debtor claimed the matter was in dispute and that the work completed by our Client was ‘shoddy’ and ‘a mess’. Our Client strongly refuted these claims and had not received any information or evidence of any dispute prior to our instruction.

We requested the debtors full dispute in writing with supporting evidence however, the debtor advised they would only supply if we issued legal proceedings.

We were instructed to proceed with County Court Proceedings with a view to enforce the Judgment via HCEO if the debtor failed to respond or make payment.

The debtor filed a dispute and refused mediation therefore, a hearing was arranged in order for the matter to go before a Judge.

We arranged for a Solicitor to attend the hearing with our Client, upon attendance the Judge reviewed all paperwork and concluded that our Client was in fact due the total claim amount and awarded our Client a County Court Judgment against the debtor.

Following the hearing and receipt of the Judgment we wrote to the debtor advising that payment must be paid to avoid any legal action.

Shortly after receiving our letter we received full payment including costs direct in to our account.

Our Client is extremely pleased with the outcome and payment has been transferred to them.
