Can I claim for the cost of the car from the council
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Not on this basis I'm afraid. I understand your complaint and I see that you have been put to cost but that doesn't give rise to a claim. There was never any guarantee the Clinton would grant this request and therefore that was the risk you took at your choice I'm afraid. The council are not in breach of contract and have not been negligent. I'm afraid there is no claim. Can I clarify anything for you?
