Thanks for the info about how site works.
I am in Ontario but the matter is in the UK. I thought I was in the UK site
You have assisted me before and were very helpful. I have been told by my uk lawyer that it will cost 35,000.00 pounds to sue my ex-friend to get $270,000. 00 I lent her back. So we are opting for striking out her defense and placing a charging order on her property. Does this seem like a fair assessment of costs and a good idea to you. I already told her it seemed like the best way to proceed.
My lawyer said she has no defense. but that didnt stop her from filing one that is full of lies. She is saying because she offered me a repayment plan I have to accept it since I should have known she could not pay the $270,000.00 back in two years. But she promoised to sell her property and then changed her mine when the money was due. I have asked that she put a charge on the property but she has refused. She continues to push me to accept her repayment plan. My lawyer seems confident that strking out her defense and asking for a summary judgement is the best way to go. It is certainly more affordable. I did call the uk police to tell them this was fraud but they just thought it was a breach of contract.
I have read about prommisory estoppel. It is a remedy in equity courts. Is this something I can do?
k. thanks for the reply.
