So therefore "btwn" £450-650.

On this basis would it be correct to say there offer of £315 was unreasonable.
If I submit a claim with the Simple Procedure (Scotland) can I expect them to pay associated fees of £100.

We are now told this is a Scottish law question. Everything said so far may be regarded as unreliable.

An oversight on my part, apologies if this has been a waste of your time.

Dinna fash - but Atti is correct. Scots law is often similar to E&W, but is unpredictably different. It is what keeps Scots lawyers in their Ferraris.

Split the difference and assume £550. You can accept the offer and be sure of £315. If you sue you may not get more than that, so is it worth risking £100 to get £235?

I considered this, difficult one as I rejected there offer. I let anger get in the way because of the venue's "attitude" and wanted to pursue for as much as possible and the fact the jacket value had risen.

I shall do some thinking, thanks.

Your last post is good. One advaantage of having a lawyer is that a cool head isavailable to look at teh botto line without becoming caught up in the emotional burdens suffered by a party.

Yes, take a deep breath, look again and settle. You might try for just a little more.

I agree it is important not to get too worked up. This type of problem needs to be assessed as if it were a business decision. Just as a good businessman knows when it is time to write off bad debts, so he knows when it is time to settle a claim and move on.
