So have they started court proceedings, and if so have you seen a copy?
The terms of your agreement with Auxillis will state that you have to cooperate with their nominated lawyers (Principia) and will inevitably reserve a right to pursue you for hire charges if you don’t cooperate.
Principia will plough on regardless and I suggest that you don’t voluntarily keep yourself in the dark as to what they’re up to and what they’re saying on your behalf (if they have issued proceedings it will be in your name and you will be the Claimant in the case!). The last thing you want is to suddenly find you’re being asked to sign a witness statement - likely full of incorrect information - with a court hearing scheduled 3 weeks down the line.
Now as to the question of the disputed timeline, you are absolutely correct not to sign anything that is incorrect/false. Presumably you have this CCTV which shows the correct date? I would send a copy to Principia (or at least a few stills from it) which shows them collecting the car on the date you said.
As DX said the court will be your local court. They need your availability information to put on the Directions Questionnaire. I would take this opportunity to tell them your nearest / preferred court.
Coronavirus: Nurses' Wetherspoon's parking fines overturned
Cancelled by Wetherspoon's – not Euro Car Parks, it seems.
A big round of applause to another bounty hunter from the private parking industry. In times of crisis – you know who your friends are.
Is the £8,000 in his savings account his only asset?
If not then I don't think you can insist that the Funeral costs have priority for payment from the funds held by Barclays. Funeral costs are a priority debt for payment from the Estate as a whole. Not from a specific bank account. I'd think if there are assets in the Estate outside Barclays will say use those.
