DCB Legal - question on SAR
I have read as much of the forum as I can so sorry if I've failed to register any simple instructions. None of this is special from what I can see, I just have a question if anyone could help.
Background (probably not necessary but just in case, as there is some comms history with DCB):
I/we stopped at a RoadChef services in 2021 and apparently overstayed. We missed the PCN and therefore appeal period due to being (clears throat) "without fixed abode" for a period.
In August last year we heard from DCB Limited on behalf of CP Plus who wanted £170 (as usual).
I did read the forums here but my other half thought it would be less stressful to settle. I did explain what I had read here, but we had a lot on our plate at the time so I agreed to email them, mention that we'd missed the PCN and ask if we could pay in instalments, the unsurprising response from DCB Limited was simply, cough up.
I decided to wait and see what happened next.
An LOC from DCB Legal has now arrived in the same format as all those shared on the forum recently. I intend to defend if the claim comes through.
Question is only - is an SAR still relevant/useful at this stage? Obviously I don't have the PCN, pictures, times etc.
The reason I ask is that section 2 of the newbie sticky mentions sending a firm rebuttal but doesn't mention making an SAR at LOC stage, if I have read it correctly, but forum helpers in more recent threads e.g. https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6432246/dcb-legal-letter-of-claim/p2 have instructed it.
Thanks in advance
