  1. Just had an email from these muppets. "We act for the Claimant and have notified the Court of our Client’s intention to proceed with the claim. Please find attached a copy of our Client’s completed Directions Questionnaire, which will be filed with the court upon their request. You will note we intend to request a special direction that the case be dealt with on the papers and without the need for an oral hearing This request is sought simply because the matter is in our Client’s opinion relatively straightforward and the costs incurred by both parties for attending an ora
  2. Hi I've got all the letters and emails all in date order, and the emails from the HA as well all in a nice plastic wallet. Plus the photos that need printing out. So that's nearly all there.
  3. Hello ericsbrother. Yep you're spot on. They believe they are the "Big man" outside of court and that I will bottle out and ask for a payment plan. Unfortunately for them they are assuming wrong. I will have to do a lot of running around, turn up to court, but to kick their butts it will be worth it.
  4. Disclosure stage, is that just before the court date, or what comes out of their mouths on the day ?
  5. Hi Everyone. Just had this email reply from Gladstones: Dear Mr XXXXXXXXX[/FONT] Thank you for your correspondence. We refer you to CPR 31.14 (1) (a) which states that a party may only request a copy of a document which is mentioned in another party’s statement of case. As the documents you have requested are not mentioned within the Claimant’s statement of case, these will not be disclosed. Yours sincerely, Ellie Coughlan Litigation Assistant e : ellie@gladstonessolicitors.co.uk
  6. OK. I will take a couple of days to get the defence letter written and then re-post. Not having been in this position means I have no idea whats expected, or what will happen. Ive been a witness a couple of times, been to a DWP tribunal before. Am I to assume that this case will be sort of like a DWP tribunal, informal, sitting at a table etc ?
  7. Oh Yes, thats the bad boy that got sent. Just working out if I should send a nice sarcastic letter to Gladstones about UK CPM paying me to NOT go to court and cancelling the Parking Charge Notice, due to them not having a contract with the HA, see if it gets sorted without anymore aggro from them.
  8. If thats the letter to Gladstones, then yes I did send, they should have received it this morning.
  9. Hello Everyone. ericsbrother. 15th Aug received the county court claim. Date of issue was 14th Aug. 16th Went online to the court site and entered my details as instructed by dx100uk Im trying to upload a pdf of photos as requested by honybee, but see below as to what my defence will be. 1. It is admitted that Defendant is the recorded keeper of [car reg]. 2. It is denied that the Claimant has complied with Schedule 4, Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. The alledged parking charge offence took place on 29/04/2017, the Notice To Keeper letter was issued by UK C
  10. Thanks to everyone. Im going to get the letter to Gladstones done over the weekend and send it. Ive a sneaky feeling they're not going to back down, maybe expect me to cave in and just pay up, or not attend court and then get judgement against me. Under the circumstances I have to defend this. The whole setup at the address where UK CPM operate, just smacks of an amateur company trying it on. The whole site doesnt look right, the tenant taking the pics has a financial gain and doesnt feel right, it all just stinks. UK CPM may be thinking that I will panic or not be up to a
  11. LiT = Litigation ? For attending court and defending myself ?
  12. Hello dx100uk Hope so.... .. So do I still wait the full time before posting my defence ? Or do I do it early ? Im definitely going to ask for costs. Do I add a request to claim for costs at the court, or online ? Please excuse me asking silly questions, never been in this position before. And Im assuming costs mean travel expenses / parking only, and that asking for extra for harrassment wont wash.
  13. Sorry ericsbrother, but you keep saying my car was at my own home, in a parking space outside my own home. It wasnt. I didnt receive a Parking Charge Notice for parking outside my own home. The Notice To Keeper was sent because the car was parked at another private car park owned by the same HA as I rent my place from. I have now received confirmation from the HA saying that there is no agreement between the HA and UK CPM, so Vehicle Control Services Limited v HMRC [2012] UKUT 129 (TCC) must be relevant. I will also take your advice about the tennat taking piccies etc.
