The lawyers for our complex took a non payer to court last year and got a judgement for us to receive €50 per month, paying their legal fees first. We got a payment in February last year and in May, minus €5 bank charges. it has just come to light that no money has been received since. On contacting the lawyers their answer is nothing has been paid since August, they cannot clarify why? Is it not up to the lawyers to chase and enforce the payments? They have been totally useless, not honest, and just keep mentioning a yearly retainer (No other lawyer I have spoken to demands this).
I have found another lawyer, who we really liked, he was very upfront and honest about the whole situation. For him to take it on, he needs our file, but he said they wont release it until they have been paid.
My question is how can they be paid if no one is enforcing the payment, and why did we bother going to court in the first place, if they are still not paying?
I am at my wits end with this, and on the verge of saying sod it, close the pool, as I receive no help with any of it.
It seems to be our lawyer just cannot be bothered.
We paid for a yearly retainer the first year, for them to set up the committee etc, (not knowing any better), they asked for a yearly retainer again on the 2nd year which we have refused to do, since then it seems they dont want to bother. Bearing in mind we have been paying out of pocket expenses etc. This is why we have now had enough and want to use a lawyer that may actually do something.
