    Mediation or Court?

    Hi
    Tenant (limited company) moved out, repair cost is more than deposit, I am claiming around £4k, he refuses to pay. I have sent all documents and to the letter before taking legal action.

    I have spoken to mediation firm, willing to take the case. But they rely on negotiation between me and my tenant, mediation don't decide on an outcome. I am not sure if this going to work and if I should go to claims courts?

    I don't think a mediator will achieve anything you can't yourself.

    What I used to do, was offer a maybe a 30% discount if they paid up without hassle, or I would sue for the whole amount. Maybe worth a try?
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

      That's my feeling when talked to a mediator, they won't achieve anything.

      Do you offer 30% discount in writing or verbally?

      When suing for full amount, is online claim court the best way?

        Oh, in writing.

        I think I'd do the claim on paper.

                Ain't you ever ignored an email you did not want to act on?

                  It's a governmental court claim online in a way similar to paying bills online and online banking.

                      He? Surely the Ltd co, unless you have a personal guarantee.
                      I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

                        I don't understand, what's your question?
                        It's a limited company has one director whom am claiming from and he's refusing to pay.
                        The limited company is still around healthy and trading and he's still the director. Have I said the limited company is dissolved?

                          If you do claim through the court can you put : Fred Blogs Trading/As Fred Blogs Limited, so you are including the name of the person who originally contacted you to rent your business premises then said it was through his Limited Company, and have you done a Company Cheque of somewhere like Endole to see if they have other Limited Companies and other addresses.
                          Good Luck.

                            There is the limited company name, company registration and the director who signed the lease, all same to present no changes. These are required by law. The director only has this limited company and it's not part of group and there is no trading as.
                            I don't understand why people complicate things or assume when is so straight forward.
