Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
You cannot stop him doing it to others but you can sue him for the money you lent him
You can warn others about him so they do not fall into his trap.
The following link will give you the process to try and get your money back.
By warning others you must be careful and simply tell them that you lent him money and he is not paying you back. That is the true position and you do not want him to sue you for defamation.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. 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.
It is not alot of money asing a solicitor will cost you more.
You can sue yourself and being over $1,000.00 you can charge interests.
The link is alot to read but it is detailed about the process.
It is enough for your to sue him.
He would not use a lawyer as it would cost him more than he borrowed.
They can be your witnesses and give evidence.
The link I have sent you sets it out very well.
You first send then letter of demand
If he refuses to pay then you commence the action in the local court
The court then sets a date you you both give evidence.
My apology Internet went down.
You send a letter. You write it and post it to him.
You would not use a lawyer. If you use a lawyer it is going to cost you more than $2,000.00
Send him a letter as evidence that you have demanded it.
Once the time passes then sue him.
If you can show that is the money you gave him then yes that will assist.
You can ask him to provide his bank statements and then you can identify the deposit.
You issue a subpoeana on the bank as well as him. This is a court order and he has to comply.
All the best and good luck
All the best
