1: Yes, and if so, is it worth fighting as also:
2: Can we appeal it owing to the fact that the reason we left later than usual from the car park was my partner's ill health? I am aware that we missed the 14 day appeals deadline as we were not physically in our home to receive it. Is this worth fighting?
Many thanks- a final note. So, just to be clear, before the company can send debt collectors, etc, you have to have a court summons? I.e. the last thing I want is for my partner (who is struggling at the moment), is to have to face bailiffs on the door step. It is only once the court summons is issued that I should act?
Apologies for probably repetition, just want to be sure! I really appreciate the service you offer and the time you are taking.
