Reach Settlement or Pursue Court?
Now they have chased me up over this 6 year old ticket and have taken me to court. In my defence, I mentioned how I had some tickets cancelled but some weren't even though they were all given for the same reason and how debt collection cannot be pursued after 6 years.
Hello, I would like to start off with giving a little context. I am currently in a legal battle between myself and a parking company due to unpaid parking tickets for not displaying a permit even though I hadn't been sent one. I had been sent multiple tickets during the period I didn't have a parking permit and had called back managing to get 1 or 2 of the tickets removed.
Now, the case stay on my court case has been lifted 4 days ago and the claimant submitted a DQ? but I didn't receive one. I have also just received a call from the claimants debt collection agency asking for a settlement (which they haven't told me the details of) between me and them and stop court procedures or carry on the court process. Now, I would like to ask, is this a routine call? Do I accept the settlement? Would they have even asked to pursue a settlement if they knew their claim would hold up in court? Should I carry on through court? Thank you.
