  1. Hi, I'm currently buying a house and my solicitors and the vendors solicitors have reached a disagreement over the validity of the contents of the root document needed to register the property once I've bought it. Neither are happy to budge on their opinion and my mortgage offer runs out in 2 months - I've reached a stalemate and am running out of time. I don't suppose anyone on here knows any solicitors that deal with this kind of thing and are able to confirm whether or not the information on the root document is sufficient? If it is, I am able to switch solicitors and continue with the purchase with the current documents. Many, many thanks in advance.
  2. Thanks Honeybee13 - is this who I need to speak with then - are all planning apps different - there's no difinitive yay or nay?
  3. Hi, I'm just about to buy a house that has an old covenant stating that I can't build or obstruct a boundary wall of more than 3ft high along the norther part of the site. However, I'm planning on building an extension along this boundary - will this be allowed? My solicitor has told me that if I breach the covenant, all I will have to do is pay an indemnity, but I've read elsewhere that I might need to pull the extension down. Can anyone give any advice regarding this? Thanks.
  4. Thanks BF - just a note - I've been at the receiving end of physical threats during my time on this planet because I asserted myself. Although it was some time ago - that kind of experience sticks with you and makes you nervous of standing up for yourself - not everything is black and white. Anyhow - thanks again for your help - and you too - have a good festive period.
  5. Hi both - in answer to your questions Manxman - the watch has great sentimental value - and I am the daughter, I don't know why he thought I was the mother...it's been a string of incompetences on his part. And I did argue the cost. I was willing to pay for the parts he *said* he'd used, but I demanded £134 in the end, which was the total cost, minus parts used and minus the watch strap which I'd specifically asked him not to replace, plus court fees. AMAZINGLY - I received an email from him and because 'he was getting bored of all this' - I received a cheque for that amount, which has just cleared into my account, and so I've cancelled any further proceedings. I can hear my Dad saying "You go girl!" Thanks for all your help with this - I'm hoping not to wake up one morning with slashed tyres...and hoping to ultimately get the watch working again, but will wait a while. Thanks again.
  6. I'm just worried about having to foot the bill of escalating costs.....and it's also a matter of principle. He's in Essex - I'm in Gloucestershire. Why? Do you think I'm at risk here?
  7. Yes - my last correspondence with him was offering to pay for the parts (£101) but for him to reimburse me the remaining £99 plus £25 court costs. I wish I hadn't started this - it's incredibly stressful. But in the meantime - thanks for sticking with me.
  8. Hi - OK, so I feel sick. I wrote to him as you suggested - asking him to cover costs - and have now received this. We are now writing via email. "On return of these parts ( 1x Balance Staff, 1x Glass, 1x Strap, 1x mainspring and 2x Endstones) I will consider the reimbursement of your monies. As of the 20th November 2020 I am in receipt of your Court papers and will be submitting a counterclaim , plus expenses, should you choose to continue. Please advise as to how you wish to proceed in these matters." Basically, he wants me to take out all of the parts that he's fitted, and return them for a full refund (I'm assuming) Or to accept the original offer (I'm assuming) of £101 excluding court costs of £25.
  9. That's really helpful BF - thanks so much - I'll get that printed and send it recorded. Thanks again.
  10. I did have ample time yes - but it's him who's been stalling (he had the watch for over two months with no correspondence) - I also asked specifically to keep the old strap - and he's billed me for a new one - but maybe that's being picky....
  11. Please see attached Claim Form sent yesterday and Letter received this morning with cheque...
  12. Do you mean attach the claim that was sent to him here for you? In the meantime, I have received - today - a cheque of partial refund - £101.00 - which I'm 'happy' to accept just to end the stress of all this. However, I've now paid the £25 to issue the claim against him - is there any chance of getting this back - or shall I not accept his cheque and proceed on chasing the full amount?
  13. OK - feedback received. I've just issued a claim form via MoneyClaim. Thanks for your help - sorry I didn't read up on it all.
  14. Thanks Bankfodder - I thought I had to wait until now before registering with MoneyClaim which is what I'll do today. But just to go back to my previous message - what's to stop him from just refusing to pay?
  15. OK - Help please! It's now been 14 days since he received my letter of intent - it was signed for with his name - the 14 days have passed that I gave him to refund me - I included my bank details - so now I take him to court *gulp* Can I ask - before I fork out more money - what's to stop him from just not paying and ignoring everything I throw at him? Thanks.
