Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Thanks Mr Sheen and Coggy, It takes a bit of getting used to the fact , you life is your own not owned by someone else all your waking hours. If someone is reading this and in the same position , check with your agent what are they for , I asked the judge that question when he said why do you think ...

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Hi Coggy, No monthly statements were sent out ,when put in the complaint they eventually sent out a spreadsheet over the 2 and a half year rental ,on this they charged full 10% plus vat every time.The only time we knew they held the deposit was when we queried why they allowed a tenant to move out o...

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Hi Coggy,
That is the only thing they did to the book every time ,they collected their 10% plus vat like the taxman.
If i lose this my faith in justice will go down the pan,
Thanks,
Victor.

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Hi MR Sheen, Thanks for that advice , i am finding it difficult to find the limitations act in plain english ,see the one below , do you think that could be taken to court as it does not involve the FCA , on most of these helpsites they say the same thing "no acknowledgment or payment for 6 yrs" is ...

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Hi Mr Sheen, you said No. 2 - they have a cheque but you have burden of proof so they don't have to prove it, you have to prove you didn't receive the money and this is where time may be against you. i can't get my head around that way of thinking. The only proof with cash is a receipt with a signat...

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.

Hi Coggy, I have presented a large file of all relevant documents,letters etc at the court and to the defendant. the defendant has presented nothing. They returned the bond to me as part payment of money they deny owing. It is like a nightmare. This is the fourth set of tenants but the first where p...

Re: When does the 6 yr rule on claiming debts start.
