I bought a sofa and pay it in full on one time on Jenuary 2012, the funiture company told me they would manufactured and delivered in 5-6weeks. But they didn't fail to deliver my sofa in time, so in the next few weeks I kept asking them when it was going to be ready, however they just kept telling me my sofa would be ready next week next week next...Then I decided to cancell my order, I told them I want to get my refund back which would less 25% of that full price I have paid. They agreed and gave me the credit note. But I realise there is no due date for this payment on the credit note paper, then I found the director of the company and he wrote the due date on the credit note and signed.However there was nothing I can see when I check my account on the due date. I ask them the reason why fail to make that payment, they said the market is quiet and they couldn't sell my sofa to pay me, the best they can do now is to pay me $500 weekly and going to pay off by August. However, they only pay me in the first week, they again fail to pay me for the second week. right now I totally cannot trust them anymore. Could you tell me what I can do next?
I warn him if he fail to make the payment again he will hear from my lawyer
Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
Thanks for your response, so how can I get my refund back as soon as possible
I am sorry but my internet was very slow and the message disppeared. I can complete this answer or obtain a refund for you.
I posted that the the best way to proceed is to get your lawyer to send the company w a statutory demand under section 289 of the Companies Act. If they do not pay on receiving this then they are an insolvent company and it is therefore very important for them to pay or lose the company. So it is fairly cheap to get done by your lawyer and often very effective.
