I went to county court on Friday and the Judge at first said I had not submitted counter claim and that I would not be able to speak. I then told him where my counterclaim was on the papers submitted by the estate agent with my writing on it.
This is what the Judge had in front of him:
1 Two peices of paper neither with my signatures saying first year 10% second 8% third 7%. I pointed out to the Judge how all other forms had my signatures, but these had non.
2 Sheet of paper with the estate agents name and then in tiny writing two lines saying that I agree to all papers sent before by agent presumably the 2 sheets 10% 8% 7%, but no mention of what these papers were also that you have to have a gas check, EPC, electricity cert etc, with my signature at the bottom.
The Judge looked at the two sheets and the signed sheet and makes the decision that I have to pay the renewal fees.
I protested that I have never seen these and that my signature is everywhere but not on these. The Judge he said I have to pay.
I am thinking of appealing and asking if anyone has had a similar case please?
