How can I help with this please?
Are you prepared to risk being sued?
Ok. So are you prepared to risk being sued?
Well, the only other option is to pay in full. That is the only way to ensure there will be no possible action.
If you are not prepared to do that then you are running the risk of being sued.
Don't waste your time with their appeal structure. It is pointless.
It isn't the appeal hierarchy that decides whether you will pay. It is the court.
In fact, all the appeal has done is tell them that you are worth chasing. If you are prepared to be sued it is best to ignore them.
If they do sue then this comes down to a dispute over fact.
Then they will instruct debt collectors to write and phone and ultimately may sue.
They do sue far more than they used to now basically because they had lost control of the industry.
It was always a myth that these things were not enforceable. It was just not particularly cost effective to enforce them.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, if they sue.
You can do that but it will rack up the cost and you won't be able to recover it as it is a small claims court sum.
I can't accept instructions directly under the rules of this site.
It isn't worth instructing anybody though. It would cost £500 - £1000 and there will be no way of recovering it.
Yes, the small claims court is usually for unrepresented defendants.
This comes down to a dispute over fact.
it depends really on how you give evidence and how they do.
If this was detected by attendant rather than by camera then you do have a reasonable challenge.
They do. They want to claim from you. They will have to do so at court.
