A family member is getting married in October of this year.
She has just received a letter stating that the wedding venue has gone into liquidation. The letter also states that the venue has been taken over by another company and that the wedding can go ahead as planned. However it states that all payments made up to 1 February (approx. £3,000, paid by credit card) have been lost and that she will need to claim these from her insurance. All payments made after 1 Feb (approx £2,000) are safe and are held be the new company.
Firstly, would it be better to claim the lost payments from the credit card company? Or would the credit card company expect you to claim from the insurance company? I assume it would be better to claim from the credit card company so as to keep the insurance intact?
Secondly, the whole thing seems far too "neat and clean" to me. Are there any other obvious (to others that is) pitfalls that we should be aware of.
Grateful for any advice.
