My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
You can send them a letter of demand.
If they refuse to pay you can then attend and file an application with the Local Court/Magistrates Court.
It is a small amount and you should do this yourself not use a Solicitor.
The court will also allow you to claim the cost of filing the application and serving it on them. You cannot claim your time.
This is your only option. They are assuming that you will not take this action as it will cost you more than the $346.00 if you use a solicitor.
Send the letter of demand and say if it is not paid in 14 days you will sue them and that will cost them further costs in the form of court costs.
If they don't pay then you take the action.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
