I appreciate that many people on this forum are in search of answers to the problem of them owing money however I am on the opposite side of the fence!
In 2005 I was unlawfully evicted from my flat by my landlord who changed the locks on me without good reason or notice. I took the matter through the courts and was awarded a sum of money for damages. The sum was awarded to me in 2006. Since then I have taken steps to recover this money which include:
Order for questioning whereby landlord is to declare assets to the courts (he did not turn up)
Third party order (bank said he had no money to give)
Baillifs (was told he kept avoiding them)
I am now 6 years down the line and am no closer to getting what im owed! I have googled him and I know he is a property investor who has various properties in the docklands. He is able to pay me however he is an arrogant indidvidual who does not believe he did wrong or is liable for the damage he caused!
I am now considering filing a statutory demand against him and following through with a bankruptcy however i do not want to waste money on this route if the debt has now become statute barred!
Can anybody tell me if the debt is statute barred? He has never acknowledged the debt he just keeps giving me the run around but its not like im just popping up from nowhere i have TRIED in the last six years to recover what im owed.
Am I flogging a dead horse here?
Thanks in advance!
