Hi Patrick and thank you for your answer. Basically both the hotel and the flights were non refundable. With regards XXXXX XXXXX hotel which I paid for... it was totally all in my name with my credit card so do the small claim courts not worry about that and just rule what they think is fair? Shouldn't it be her responsibility to chase up her money and for me to chase mine up.Technically the hotel money that I managed to get a refund off was mine so does she have rights to my money?
Oh and we were only together for 2 months.
Are there any costs associated with the small claims (minor claims) court? I also understand you cannot get legal representation if under 10K and no magistrate is this correct?
Hi again Patrick, sorry one more thing if I may... will she need proof that I have even got the refund? she said she rang the hotel in indonesia and they said a refund was issued. Can she obtain a written statement from them as proof enough? I have never told her that I have received the refund, I have only said no I haven't.
