  • Hi all - can I hold this company responsible for my increased Air B N B costs?

    Hi all,
    Basically, a company was sending me a refund of 200 and confirmed this in writing. I have two bank accounts and arranged a transfer of funds from account A to account B for a set date, after these funds were scheduled to arrive. Account B was being used to pay the balance on a booking with Air B N B, and I arranged in advance as I was going on holiday.

    Then two weeks later Air B N B tell me the booking was cancelled due to non-payment. The company sent only half the 200 and the transfer of funds failed, so there was no money in account B to make payment.

    All other accommodations I am looking for through Air B N B have now increased in price greatly.

    Can I hold this company responsible for this mess? I relied on the information they gave me and I see this as a Loss of Chance Small Claims case?

    Thank you.***

    Nope. They were unaware of your arrangements. You can sue them for the money they owe you.

      Thank you 2222

      My understanding is that the consequences do not need to be in their contemplation (indeed they were not even in mine) - I only need to show that I relied upon their information?

        I think your understanding is misplaced.

        When a tort has been committed the test for remoteness of damage is whether the kind of damage suffered was reasonably foreseeable by the defendant at the time of the breach of duty
