WOULD YOU SELL YOUR CLAIM ON THE CHEAP?
very interesting blog from Mark. Worth a read.
We’ve had a lot of discussion about this in the claimant group. Our view that their unilateral promise to settle by Xmas (which as usual they didn’t discuss with us) is leading some officers to consider proposing a ‘crap’ offer and when we reject it, going over our heads and sending offers direct just before Xmas.
Many folk on here have immediately declared ‘they won’t get fooled again’. But would they? Would you?
What if they offered a years salary tax free?
How about 2 years?
What if they offered £40000 ? Would you wait for our valuation? If we said your claim was worth £100000 but it might take another 3 years?
The general view was lots of folk would be too desperate for the money.
We think the council know this and it would be rank exploitation- but they ve been exploiting you for years. Would they stop now.
We think the leader should promise not to do this.
What do you think?
