What I was trying to say is that in many cases here you win but do not get any money awarded or if you do they do not pay up.

Don’t know if I read it on here but in a recent case on the CDS a community of town houses lost its pool through bad construction, they went to court and won but were not awarded enough money to rebuild the pool.

A friend sued a developer for some serious defects…they won (legal fees 25000) the developer appealed, that was two years ago and nothing has been put right. By the time you get a final judgement many of the companies do not exist.

I agree that it is sometimes necessary to go to court but the system is crazy here and it seems to me that the only winners are the scammers and fraudsters and of course, the lawyers.
