Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know how much is being claimed please?
'Debt amount' now £170
Debt amount £170
Alex Watts : Ok, don't worry even if they do issue it's a small claim.
Alex Watts : they would have to show there was a contract, you agreed to their terms and they suffered a loss.
Alex Watts : Bearing in mind the signage and the fact they offer free parking, I can't see that there is a contract.
Alex Watts : Therefore even if they did go to court they would only recover £5
Alex Watts : You can contest it and do not be bullied into paying bearing in mind the deficiency of their parking signs etc
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please ?
would you recommend representation by a solicitor? particularly as I would want to recover costs which they would claim if they took it to court (court costs and solicitor fee bringing potential up to £255)? except I would want to claim more to cover the bother in defending this.
should I respond or ignore the 'Final reminder'?
Alex Watts : No you won't need it, it's a small claim
Thanks, ***** ***** excellent particularly if it works
