    Legal Help Needed - Scotland 29th Nov 17 at 8:19 PM
    Hi, I paid for my jacket to be held within a venues cloakroom, when I went to collect it was gone. The venue have admitted full liability and offered to pay me the full amount I paid for the jacket in 2014.
    The jacket is considered a collectors item, as such has increased considerably in value both used and new as per ebay - I have provided this information to the venue.
    I always maintained I wanted my own jacket back or an identical replacement.
    The amount they offer will not pay for a replacement.
    I have engaged extensively in dialog by email with the venue and they will not budge re there offer.
    I am seriously considering pursuing through the Simple Procedure at court in Scotland.
    What am I entitled to, is it the amount I paid for the jacket OR its current value ???

    How much did you pay for it back in 2014? Did you buy it new or second hand? What conditions was it in? I’d imagine a 3+ year old leather jacket if worn regularly would have at minimum a few scuffs by now even if we’ll looked after, if not looked after possibly worse.
