You say that you cannot get any legal help, but have you contacted the people suggested earlier i.e. NAMV, The Mary Ward Legal Centre, Legal Services Commission etc ? You can also go to your local advice centre or CAB, have you tried? I've sent you an example of a settlement letter I've got. You could try offering between 5 & 10% of the alleged shortfall. Make sure you remember to put "Without prejudice" on the letter and state that it's an ex gratia payment, although this is already in the example I will send you.
