  1. That's a very good point, I was err shall we say a bit trusting. because of the relationship I "thought" I had with them I trusted their word, they told me that it wasn't going to be a problem because the new place would cost less than the old one. Looks now that I will just have to suck it up, I know that there is some extra cash in hand income sometimes but that isn't going to help as it would just be denied. I think I am answering my own questions here. The saying about "No good dead goes unpunished" is remarkably accurate.
  2. Well it's come to the time to the time to do something about this and I have been giving this a lot of thought particularly what BazzaS has said. So, I have no experience in these matters and while it really ticks me off, what is the likelihood of a satisfactory result ? I don't doubt that there is a very good chance of a successful court finding but if the chance of payment is very slim then there is little point in wasting more money. They are on benefits and have nothing of any real value so sending bailiffs in would be pointless. the only other possibility as far as I see woul
  3. Thanks all for your help so far, letter before action sent by normal mail and recorded. I have the delivery signature and posting proof so I think that angle is covered. Now I will wait a bit, I really don't expect a reply but I always hope for the best. Thanks
  4. Just one quick point before I send this, Andy you said 14 days but the pre-action protocol mentions 30, is there a change somewhere ?
  5. Or this one which isn't a template and I think much simpler. I will put the relevant dates in. Simple LBA redacted.pdf
  6. Ok guys, I found the letter template on the "Which" website so I hope its the right sort of thing and would appreciate any advise / corrections on this draft. Thanks. IMG.pdf
  7. Thank you all, I use Ebay a lot so am familiar with the proof of posting, I like the idea of doubling up for the sake of a bit of postage so thanks for that idea. I will get on to this this afternoon.
  8. Thank you, I will get onto that this afternoon and post up before I send. What sort of proof do I need that the letter has been sent ? I dont imagine they would sign for anything recorded delivery and with it being a flat the post box is remote from the flat.
  9. That is a very good point,when we first talked about this they were told, we don't care how long it takes to pay it back, if you can't manage to pay what you think, just talk to us because we know things don't always go to plan. I have helped this couple with LOTS of things , from shopping trips when they were broke , cash when thy needed help, thats just the tip of the iceberg. I'm really ticked off about it, I am aware that it is a possibility that I won't get anything but I can't just leave it without trying. I provided these people with a complete new start in life that
  10. Thanks Stu, I realise that this is full of holes. as is, I guess, often the case this is an unexpected situation and because of this the agreement was never meant to be a contract but rather a note of intent. Ironically the borrowers were quite firm on having something in writing to do it the right way !! Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
  11. Thanks for that, Do I know their address ? Yes, I moved all their furniture in for them, not to mention supplying a lot of it in the first place !! The agreement is attached with the names changed, the second note which in retrospect I should have dated was in a letter I personally put in their postbox along with most of the guide from the Gov.uk website about making a court claim for money, just to hopefully nudge them to contacting me. I posted this on 23/10/19 at about 11 pm and then sent a text to their phones ( they have 2 each) and got delivery reports to say they had
