How to go down the le­gal route

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

You must prove that you’ve tried all rea­son­able means to re­solve the dis­pute be­fore con­sid­er­ing an ap­proach to the courts. If you bought a car from a trader, com­mu­ni­cate as much as pos­si­ble and give ad­e­quate op­por­tu­ni­ties for the is­sues to be rec­ti­fied. Your lo­cal Cit­i­zens Ad­vice Cen­tre will be able to pro­vide gen­eral guid­ance about statu­tory rights in re­la­tion to your dis­pute.

Your next stage may be to take in­de­pen­dent le­gal ad­vice. You can also pur­sue a claim via the small claims track (for claims up to £10,000 in value) of your County Court; do­ing so is a far more straight­for­ward and in­ex­pen­sive process than many peo­ple imag­ine. Re­gard­less of how you wish to re­solve the dis­pute, be rea­son­able and clear about where you want to be at the end of it.
