Ben, We have just received a statement of claim from a

Customer Question

Hi Ben,
We have just received a statement of claim from a company but the legal entity name they have used is incorrect. I inadvertantly did this once and the next thing I knew I had to pay the other side costs before a hearing was held. Can I do the same in reverse ?

How did you receive the summons?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
By post, I think it gets sent out via the Northampton Bulk Processing Centre and then assigned a local court
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for the delay, but this has only just come to me. I am a little confused as to why it was sent to you if its not correct.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Because the address is correct but the legal entity name they used is incorrect and it is not our legal entity name

OK - what do you want to ask me
