Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
Have you considered issuing a claim against both Local Authorities?
they are public bodies so would be excluded - you would need to deal with it via the paper method, form N1 (attached).
Before issuing court proceedings though a letter before claim is required. Was one sent? If not, this need to be done - pre-action conduct is taken seriously by the courts given that litigation is seen as a last resort by the court.
It looks like you clicked the call button - apologies I can’t take a call at the moment. If no one calls you then you will not be charged for it - an "authorisation" has been made for payment, that's all. However, the call request is open to all experts - if you want to cancel the call then please send an email to *****@******.***. I can continue with the question online if that suits?
