What to con­sider be­fore the le­gal op­tions

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Be­fore even threat­en­ing le­gal ac­tion, you must prove that you have tried all rea­son­able means to re­solve the dis­pute be­fore ap­proach­ing the courts. Com­mu­ni­cate with the trader 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 might 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 –it’s straight­for­ward and in­ex­pen­sive. Be clear about the con­clu­sion at which you wish to ar­rive, but above all be re­al­is­tic and rea­son­able.
