    Thank you. A trip to Manchester it is! (If we have to go court).

    Can't you use your local court?

    As you are a consumer and he is a business he will have to travel to your local court if it gets that far.

    In fact the claimant gets choice of court anyway, don't they? It's only if the defendant is a consumer that the defendant gets the option to choose the court - a business defendant doesn't get such a choice.
  • So when I filled out the on line application, I had to list him as an individual but T/A. This is taken from the website "Once parties have filed their questionnaire the case may be referred to a mediator if the parties
    agree, alternatively it will be transferred to the local County Court Hearing Centre to continue. If mediation is unsuccessful, your claim will also be transferred. If you are making a claim against an individual, the claim will be transferred to their local court. If you are making a claim against a company, the claim will be transferred to your local court, or to your solicitor’s local court. You can search for your local county court using the following website:
    https://courttribunalfinder.service.gov.uk/search/ If you have good reason for the claim to be dealt with at a different court, you can explain this on the questionnaire. Your request will be considered by the District Judge or court appointed Legal Advisor when they are deciding what should happen next (please be aware that the defendant can also make such a request)."
