Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist you with this today.
Please bear with me as I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed getting back to you.
Sometimes I will get back to you very quickly, other times it's going to be longer and possibly hours or overnight
Please bear in mind that it takes me time to type answers and I also have clients and sometimes have to attend court so I may not get back to you immediately.
Who is the issuer?
Are you asking if you are liable?
But this is private land?
You can do that but it really doesn't matter.
They are entitled to do this. They always did have a perfectly valid breach of contract claim. The issue was that they went around impersonating the local council and they don't do that anymore. What they have sent you as a letter before action which they are entitled to do and in fact under an obligation to do. If you are liable for these tickets then you should probably be trying to settle the claim unless you want to run the risk that they won't sue which they might not
I am sorry but I have to tell you the truth.
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting to lose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even though they have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a good chance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court.
The ultimate decision comes from a county court judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in a criminal case heard in the magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
It doesn't matter. This is private land. The test is entirely different.
The only letter they have to send is the letter before action.
At court it would be about £250
But they may accept less at this stage.
If you are liable for these tickets then you should probably be trying to settle the claim unless you want to run the risk that they won't sue which they might not
Well it might not be. Save for the breach originally. sometimes life is unfair. It might just be that you've had bad luck.
It was my pleasure to assist you. Please come back if anything else crops up and needs clarification.
