It's now been 7 weeks since I asked for a judgement, and 11 weeks since I filed a claim, I've had a sum total of 3 letters, 2 saying it's being transferred to Canterbury county court (their home court, normal for small claims) and another today saying it's been transferred back to my home court!
I'm still yet to hear or find out if they've actually filed a defence yet.
I believe the courts will try and offer a mediation service, but it requires both parties to agree to it which they probably will now it's in my home court :)
If nothing can be agreed then we both end up in court!
I'll post as soon as I have any further update.
