Hi from a newbie in need of advice


As a result of a dispute with a car dealership relating to the miss-selling of a particular vehicle model (used) I have been offered a settlement. The letter from the companies solicitor is stating that payment will be made upon receipt of an acceptance letter and a copy of a letter to the court withdrawing my civil claim. The letter also states at the top 'Without Prejudice Save as to Costs'


Can anyone help me with these two questions please


1, If I choose to accept thier offer should I send them a copy of any letter sent to the court or should I request payment before I withdraw the civil claim?

2, What does 'Without Prejudice Save as to Costs'actually mean?


Many thanks

1. Yes - do not withdraw the claim until you receive the money - you can write a letter stating you will accept their offer and will withdraw your claim upon receipt of cleared funds.


2. It basically means that this is a negotiating letter that can't be used within a court room as proof (although I believe this can be overturned by a judge, but don't quote me on this). I ahven't got a clue what "save as to costs" means - hopefully a legal bod will see this thread.

All help is merely my opinion only - please seek legal advice if you need to as I am only qualified in SEN law.
