Hi all,


I submitted a claim through moneyclaim online and clicked the option for sending detailed particulars direct to the defendant. What I'd like to know is, what do I include in the detailed particulars, do they have to follow some kind of standard format and lastly, can I send them via email or do I have to post them out?


I'd certainly appreciate any advice, thanks!

Impossible to give any advice until you tell us what your claim is all about.


As for service, you should really post the Particulars or at least fax them. Email generally isn't sufficient.

Okay thanks, I'll make sure to post it out. I'll just give you a quick outline of the case, I don't think it's very complex to be honest:


I'm a self-employed freelancer and was contacted by a company asking me to design a new website for them. A price, timescale, design etc was agreed, the site was completed and I invoiced them. Since finishing it, I didn't hear from them at all - no calls emails anything. After many emails and phonecalls I eventually spoke to the main guy at the company and he came up with some rubbish excuse for not getting back to me. Anyway, time goes on and still no payment (the site was finished last June!) so I got tired of waiting and began proceedings against them. Basically, I carried out a service which I haven't been paid for.That pretty much sums it up anyway!

Did you follow the pre action protocols including issuing a LBA?

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Don't forget to print and enclose a response pack with your particulars, retain proof of service just in case this is ever brought into question. You only have 14 days in total after the court serve the claim form. Also ensure you file your N215 with the court within time.

Make sure you file your N215 in time, you can find the correct form at post #8


If its within the threshold for small claims it may take a punt on defending if there's a limited risk to costs exposure

Hi, just thought I'd give a bit of an update to my case. I proceeded with the claim and got a judgement by default and received a cheque from the defendants a few days after that! Thanks for the help here anyway!
