Thank you for the information and the time.
Iam sorry but I cannot give you good news. I'm afraid you are indifficulty here.
I have to tell you the truth.
I am sorry but it would be wrong of me to avoid givingyou the downside of your position.
This is obviously an arguable point but there are some casesthat deal with the issue of incorrect locations upon a NIP. I have attached the leading case of Walton vHawkins in which it was fairly roundly asserted that an error in location madeno difference as long as nobody was mislead and cites and older case of Pope vClarke in which a mistake as to time was held immaterial.
You could argue this and try to differentiate yourself fromWalton v Hawkins. It was a case where a NIPwas not required under S241 Road Traffic Act 1960 which was the relevant lawthen. It was also a differentallegation. However, that is obviously arisk.
You also do have the option to respond telling them that thelocation is wrong in the hope they issue a new NIP which would waste some oftheir time. All Walton v Hawkins says isthat this error does not invalidate a NIP.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simpleand easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happyto clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using ourservices.
Do remember that I can only give you myopinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion.Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting tolose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even thoughthey have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a goodchance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer toevery legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed tocourt.
The ultimate decisioncomes from a county court judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in acriminal case heard in the magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
