? small claim for loss of money
Topic: ? small claim for loss of money
Posted: 29/August/2015 at 20:47
I’m just enquiring for a friend whom is seeking to start a minor case claim.
He paid a guy some money to restore a vintage car. The restorer of the business doesn’t have an ABN and is a retired person seemingly doing this for a bit of extra income.
My friend purchased and supplied the parts, to which the restorer then on-sold online. My friend now has recovered some of the remainder parts, but is now out of pocket. The workmanship that was done is considered sub-standard and incomplete. The modifications that were done by the restorer would not meet the requirements to make the vehicle road legal.
In total, my friend considers himself approximately $9000 out of pocket, from parts that were supplied and not retrieved and work that was not carried out.
Should this be lodged as a small claim (form 4) or a consumer trader small claim (form 6)?
He plans to self represent so any advice is much appreciated.
