I used the website provided when i started a claim you have to pay a small fee(think around £30)to start it up but you get that back when you get money off other party:thumbsup:

You don't usually get a costs order in SCC, only very rare circumstances. It's to discourage people throwing expensive lawyers at small matters in intimidation.

thats extra costs, court fees are always included in the settlement figure

The fee is dependant on the amount you are claiming.

There will be no court costs if the claim is under £1500.

I'll prefix this with, a mon avis and without prejudice to avoid confusion...

Nope, not a council employee I'm afraid.
Suing is hardly your answer though is it.
And you didn't exactly put your case in a favorable way, what right do you have to white goods on the councils expense?
Why don't you contact the council and agree you'll start your own repairs if it's that bad.
I'm really not trying to pick a fight but sounds like you want everything for free and them some.


Assuming he/she has tried other ways and the council have lost her property, exactly which way would you advise them to get their goods or value back?

As for the repairs, why should he/she have to repair rented property, thats the landlords responsibility.

FWIW I'm not exactly sure what could be claimed for regarding the poor state of repair, but I would start action if they lost my goods and refused to replace them. I think I would be writing to them asking for their return or payment for them within 7 days or legal action will be started.

Please ignore all the threadjacking comments :x

Can anyone tell me if I can put down a works address as the address for the person i am issuing the small claims against?

No, has to be their personal address.

It depends if the person runs their own business.....for example if they sold you software that was used in the nature of their business,then that address would be fine;-)
