HiWelcome to Just Answer!! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you.
Who did you have a contract with, the mechanical or the electrical company?
Hi, my contract is with the electrical company.
Your claim is against the electrical company and not against the mechanical company. The fact that they are liquidated should not affect you. You should let the electrical company know, who you are contracted to, to pay the outstanding amount before a certain date or you will have to take legal action.
If they off course refuse, it will then mean that you will have to get a summons issued in this regard.
Please ask more if not clear.
Would 1 month be a reasonable time to arrive at a due date?
I assume I would need a lawyer to get a summons issued?
14 days are more than enough.
You will need a lawyer to get a summons issued.
I would need a lawyer in Rivonia that could help me with this problem, but I am not sure if you can answer that.
