    Thanks for your reply Bel, i am well aware that i can get paid legal advise, but i thought as everyone does i'd ask on this forum first.

    Is this statement valid?

    Surely there is no contract between your T and your property management company PMC. Each has a separate contract with you only. Consequently, T cannot sue PMC and vice-versa.

    Today i had my property mangment company that i used to redecorate & re furnish my property contact me. He told me that the director of the company (my T) phoned him & was asking questions like:

    When did you carry out the works?
    Do you have recipts for the materials used & for fittings replaced?
    Will you be prepared to testifiy in court that you carried out the works?
    When did you do the works?

    & also told him (property mangment company) that i will pass your details onto my solicitors & they will be in contact with you. He (the director) even said he was pat of the authorities.

    My question here is as this is a small claims court can the property mangment company be forced to go to court as he does not want anything to do with it?

    I hope the above is understandable. Any advise would be very helpfull.

    If you have any letters that you have sent the tenant or any person representing the tenant concerning the condition of the property or their failure to observe the terms of the tenancy agreement, add those too to the list.
    I have sort of, at the end of the term when i conducted check out with a rep for the T(the company) i made a list of all that was missing & damaged for each room & posted it with a covering letter but did not get a reply. I will be submitting a copy of this.

    I think the above are excellent documents plus the signed tenancy agreement with pertinent highlights.

    Good luck.
    I have never had such a terrible tenant, etc., but I hope its your last experience like this.

    I have redecorated the flat & replaced missing items. Will the documents below be sufficient enough?

    1:My statement of events from the beginning of the term to the end of the term.
    2:Check in report.
    3:Inventory.
    4:Photos of points 2 & 3.
    5:Mid-term inspection report.
    6:Photos of point 5.
    7:Check out report.
    8:Photos of point 7.
    9:Letters sent to the T(the company) with signed proof of delivery.
    10:Invoices of works carried out & for items replaced.

    Would it be an idea to send a copy of the AST highlighting the section;THE TENANT AGREES WITH THE LANDLORD?

    P.S: Thanks to whoever reworded my title in the thread & also thanks to all that have replied. I now am feeling a little less nervous as i have started to put all my facts together.

    Yes, you need to write a witness statement and to submit it to the court and the other parties. It's your version of events. You shoudn't be nervous about attending a court; the judge will direct you and you should just tell it as it is.

    All info regarding court claims can be found at www.courtservice.gov.uk

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm getting back on this as i have received an hearing date & i need further advise please as i have never been to court before i am very nervous & don't know what to expect.

    As written on the hearing letter are the two things that I'm not sure on:

    1)The documents & information sent to the court & each party should,where available, include:
    a)the letter making the claim & any reply
    What letter are they referring to?

    2)The documents to be sent to the parties & the court must include the statements of all witnesses(including the parties themselves).
    Does this meant i now need to write a statement & if so why?

    Thanks for any advise you can give.
