1 pointYou should go ahead and defend the claim saying that you deny that any money is owed and that a settlement was agreed on X X X date and that the claimant has agreed not to continue. It is essential that you put in a defence if it has not been withdrawn. Otherwise you lay yourself open to a default judgement – unlikely – but possible.
1 pointmany years ago I took a picture of a Croydon Council Civl Enforcement van parked up on DYL's in south Norwood whist waiting for the merry ticketers to return an be transported to the next stop. This was published in local paper and council claimed that they were entitled to break the law. That went down so badly that they eventually cancelled every ticket issued that day by the photographed team as thye had to admit that like with any other contract, criminality voids it.
