  1. Hi All, I am not sure if it was simply acknowledging the case on Money Claim and stating I intend to defend, or the lets say firm pressure I have been applying to my management company who employed these clowns but I did this morning receive a notice of discontinuance for all of this claim. I believe this means they have withdrawn their case and I no longer have to worry! Thanks for all your advice up until this point, it's a joke that these companies get by simply by trying to scare people into paying!
  2. They have already got rid of them after I brought their many dubious activities (banned by DVLA etc) to their attention. I would love to counter claim against them to teach them a lesson but don't have the skills or inclination!
  3. Thanks all, Claim has been acknowledged as advised and ensure "defend All" is ticked! I have emails to and from the management company. One stating that they allow my bay to be exempt, as well as a number of previous tickets that have been cancelled. There will also be e-mails of them successfully cancelling other tickets.
  4. Checking my Lease in the second schedule: i) The exclusive right to park a private motor vehicle in the parking space shown shaded yellow and numbered 24 on Plan 1 annexed - The car was parking in this very space. I can't find anything about variations in my lease though, I don't really know what I am looking for though?!
  5. Name of the Claimant: UK Parking Control Ltd claimants Solicitors: SCS Law Date of issue – 06/09/2018 Date of issue 06/09/2018 + 19 days ( 5 day for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 25/09/2018 + 14 days to submit defence = 09/10/2018 (33 days in total) - What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim? Please type out their particulars of claim (verbatim) less any identifiable data and round the amounts up/down. The Claimant claims from the defendant the sum of £800 in respect of unpaid parking noticed issued as a result of the defendants breach of terms and conditions of parking at a site managed by the claiment. I will provide the defendant with seperate detailed particulars within 14 days after service of the claim form. **IMPORTANT** WE NEED TO SEE THE FULL POCicon MINUS YOUR PERS DETAILS>> NOT AN ABRIDGED VERSION**THIS MUST INCLUDE THE LOCATION What is the value of the claim? £800 Has the claim been issued by the Private parking Company or was the PCN assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim ? PPC Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?
  6. Hi all, Have utilised many a thread from these sites over the years with great success. Quick summary: Usual residential gated car park, management company bought in PPC - I actually from told the management company from the get go that I did not want my bay covered by the scheme because I knew the calibre of companies they would use and being a gated car park with fobs to get in, it doesn't happen that often and if someone was to park in my space although a tad inconvenient my world would not end. My management company actually agreed to this, not before however I had received a number of fake parking tickets! Have continued to receive the occasional ticket from the same UKPC lot and my management company just has them canceled. However, there were a number of tickets they originally issued that they refused to cancel. Fast forward 6 months or so and last week I received a claim letter of them trying to claim £800 for parking in my own space! I have read many many posts and useful guides on defending, however it is still fairly daunting. I am a lease holder, in my lease I have the right to use that bay to the extent that there is even a car park diagram A3 fold out sheet with my bay highlighted. I haven't read the lease with a fine tooth comb to check if it can be varied however. The claim form claims "I will provide the defendant with separate detailed particulars within 14 days after the service of the claim form". From reading the many guides & advice they say I have to acknowledge the claim. However some guides I have read say that if they are providing particulars seperately I have to wait until they arrive and if they don't to complain to the court. My first question I guess is, do I complain to the court after acknowledging or before? If before how do I do it and ensure it is received?
  7. Hi All, Over the last year my car has twice been towed away by a 'Parking enforcement company' when it was parked in my own space. This was because the permit issued to me was the first time covered & the second time had fallen into the foot well of my car. To date if have paid almost up to £1000 to park in my own space! Obviously I argued at the time but they hold you to ransom by charging you on a daily basis if you do not collect your car. Also to the letter of the signs posted in my car park there was no permit so they towed me. I put it down to me being and idiot and not fastening my permit to the screen etc. Its only in the past few weeks talking with various friends I would like to challenge these extortionate fines! I have extremely limited legal knowledge but I think the grounds in which I want to do this revolve around my lease. In my lease it states I have the right to park in the space provided (the lease even includes a drawn map of the car park with my space highlighted) and mentions absolutely nothing about parking permits. After reading various different bits about leases etc as I understand it, for them to enforce a permit scheme, that constitutes varying the terms of my lease, something that I believe has to be legally agreed by me!? The management company claim that it is the 'freeholders' decision but from what I have read they could be wrong. I suppose my questions are; do I actually have a case? If so, who do I pursue to try and reclaim my money (Management company, freeholder or parking scumbags?) Also I have absolutely no idea how to go about it. Do i need some form of legal representation? Are there no win no fee type companies that can help me? Thanks in advance for any assistance!
  8. Hi The Slithy Tove, It has taken me a while to reply. Your PM has been strpped of any links for some reason? Could you possibly resend the link through somehow? If i get there quick enough they might not strip it? Cheers Dan
  9. OK, so the management company are not budging and are claiming that the 'freeholder' agreed to the parking scheme. But as previously mentioned in the lease agreement I have in my possession no mention of permits and the distinct term that I have the right to park in the exact space I was parked in. To make things a little more confusing I purchased a % of the flat under a shared ownership scheme, does this more than likely mean I don't then have that right or mean they can change it without my consent? I am for the sake of the cost mounting and because I need it collecting my car tonight to the tune of £507!!! I really am keen to follow this up but even after reading through the kindly offered advice on here and the suggested stickie’s none the wiser as to how I should go about claiming some or all of the money back? Under what grounds would I have the best argument?
  10. Hi All, I am looking for some advice with regards to a predicament I have found myself in. Last night I went to use my car only to find it was not in my designated parking bay! I live in a block of flats, the management company of which have hired a typical ****** parking enforcement 'company'. I correctly guessed that my car had been removed by this company. They said there was no permit visible but to my knowledge the permit is in the car and I genuinely thought on the Windscreen. The company want £280 + £100 + £40 because they stored it over night due to the fact that they can’t release cars after the hours of 9 and 5! After some searching on the internet and general reading of this forum I need to know if I have any sort of leg to stand on! I think it will be difficult to dispute the fact that the permit may not be fully displayed, I am certain that it was in the windscreen but there is the possibility that it slipped under my tax disc or was in-avertedly covered with some foreign object?! I don't check this every time I get out! I think my strongest case could be related to the fact that I am a lease holder and when I couldn't sleep at 3am last night I managed to find the actual lease document that states I have the right to park in the space I was in and there is even a map included with my car parking space shaded. Also I have never signed anything from the management company to essentially agree to the permit scheme? Does this mean they trespassed into my space? Does this mean they don't have the right to enforce parking permits as I own the space? Further more there is the option of the fee being reasonable? From what I have read I have interpreted it should be a fee to cover losses or damages incurred by the land owner (me surely?). Thanks in advance for any input!
