Hi, I am looking for some advice.


I moved last week (decided to do it myself) which in hindsight wasn’t the best idea.  

on the day of the move, I was awaiting the completion call (which I didn’t get until 3pm).


We were loading, the movers for my buyer turned up at about 11am and were sat outside the house.

We left with a load and decided to go to the house I had purchased.

Whilst there I received the call that I could collect my keys.

When we got back to my old house at 4pm, my buyers movers had gone. 

Apparently they only work until half four.

we carried on moving, as still had a fair bit to move.

The buyer had moved next door to her son so I handed her a spare key and we carried on.


The buyers movers returned the following morning to deliver her things.

The buyer stated I was in breach of contract etc as wasn’t out of the house on time and would receive a fine.

I said there was no need to involve the solicitors and I would just cover the extra cost for the movers to return the following morning.

She has now sent me a bill for over £1000 and this looks to be the whole of her transport cost. 

I feel this is really excessive and would like some advice on how to go forward with this.

I was going to call the company on Monday and ask exactly what the additional cost was, not sure they will tell me though.


Any help would be much appreciated here...

she certainly hasn't any authority to 'fine' you.

what was in the contract regarding vacating the property by when?


please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
