  1. Actually can’t believe I’m back here doing this again but here we are! in 2018 I started the following thread based on Countrywide Parking Management issuing me multiple tickets in my own parking space in the flats I used to live in. Long story short, it dragged on for a long time and eventually I had a phone hearing at our local court where I won against them and was awarded costs. fast forward to now and They have found me at my new address and have started chasing me for what I am sure is the final ticket that was issued through this laughable timeline of events. These have been ignored however today I have come home to a letter of claim from BW stating they have been instructed to issue court proceedings should I not respond or pay. I have no issues taking these clowns to court again but in all honestly, I can’t be bothered nor have I got the time. I am going to write my response to their LBC however I would like to ask, is it worth bringing their attention to my previous court case with solid evidence of them having to pay me costs? I am assuming they have an automated system for chasing these and there is no joined up thinking so maybe it would be a good idea to bring to their attention that we have done this once before and it didn’t end well for them!
  2. So who wants a laugh? Following on from my win against CPM in court with costs awarded against 3 tickets issued over a 5 day period, they are now chasing me again. they originally gave me about 6 tickets for the same thing over a period of about 6 months however only took me to court for the 3 that were close together. I have come home today to a letter from BW legal chasing one of the remaining tickets threatening court action. You can’t make this up!! im not expecting them to take this to court considering the low value but if they do, I intend on having some real fun with this!
  3. Thank you Dave, I suspected as much but just wanted clarity! I’ll file with the rest…
  4. Thank you Bankfodder! just when I was thinking whatever happened with this, it rears its head again! today I received the letter attached. I’m confident it’s a case of ignore at the moment but what I’m conscious of is if they decide to go to court and I don’t respond to this letter, will they do it to my new address (which PE were aware of) or if they don’t get a response from this one, will they go to my old address? or shall I just stop worrying and wait and see? 05-06-2019, 19:43 Office Lens(2).pdf
  5. out of interest, how would they have breached GDPR in my case? The tickets were windscreen tickets and I approached them with my details so they would have no reason to go to DVLA (which I believe they didn’t as the lease company would have charged me as they are the RK of the vehicle) however...in their WS (incorrectly) they did say they contacted DVLA...
  6. No there wasnt. The judge did make a point that my extract from my lease agreement did not cover if a parking space was included however dismissed that point later on based on the fact that the claimant wasn't claiming on the basis of not parking in the correct space but double parking.
  7. Claim Dismissed! The hearing lasted for about 45 minutes on the phone. As expected, the claimant did not attend. The judge was very helpful and considering it was my first time in a court setting, assisted with the process. The case was dismissed on the basis that the claimant had provided no evidence that the signage forbid double parking at the time (even though on multiple occasions she argued it did with no evidence!). The court have also awarded £95 costs. The claimant asked for the case to be appealed on the basis that the signage was correct. The judge did not allow it for the simple fact that my evidence showed a picture of the sign the day before the final PCN. Also, the judge made a point of mentioning just how clear and precise the WS was so to all of you that have helped me with this case, my sincerest thanks!
  8. thanks! I will be sure to do so. I’m assuming as they aren’t present, it leaves them in a position where they can only recite the WS and no more? Wouldn’t be able to answer any questioning from myself or the judge? Sorry if these are stupid questions, my first time in a court situation!
  9. Thanks DX. I have just re read the 90 page bundle and have remembered a fair few points on this now so feel armed for the call tomorrow. I have never done anything like this before so not really sure what to expect. The case has been allocated 1hr30. I assume like all court cases despite being on the phone it will be a very formal event
  10. Hi all, this hearing is tomorrow at 11:30 on the phone so I am just revising the whole situation as it’s been going on for over a year now. One thing I have noticed in the claimants pack is a letter to the courts stating pursuant to CPR 27.9 the client will not be in attendance and they will be represented by an advocate. what impact if any does this have? Am I correct in thinking the advocate has no position to argue the case?
  11. I have received an email letter from the court stating I have a court date of 2nd Nov. Couple of questions around this... 1. The letter states; ”TAKE NOTICE that this case has been listed in a list with two other cases and therefore the fixture is not guaranteed but until you hear otherwise please work to the final hearing date” do we think this is two other cases regarding Countrywide parking or just two other cases in general? 2. the letter states l should contact the claimant and try to agree a bundle. We have already done this and I agreed it when it was supposed to be heard on the papers earlier in the year before the courts closed. Do I have to do this again? I assume it is a generic letter
  12. last I have heard from them was a letter saying as I have not responded, they are referring the case back to PE and suggesting court action. This was about 3-4 weeks ago. Will keep you updated if I hear anymore
  13. Oh, now I feel like a tit. so not even worth the paper it’s written on...
  14. Confident I know the answer to this one but do o need to do anything with the letter attached? (DCBL DCA Threat-o-gram) also, I have let PE know about my address change (as above) but do I need to do the same with these clowns?
  15. Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
  16. i have chased the court today as everything has gone quiet. They have confirmed that the case in May was vacated due to COVID and as per the letter back in April, requested permission from both parties for a hearing on the papers. They have had my response, i have had a copy of BW/CPM's bundle which i assume was also sent to the court however the court have had no communication at all from CPM or BW. At this point, they have just sat on it. My question to the advisor at the court was would this justify a request for the hearing to be struck out as they have not responded before the date set out in the last letter and he has advised email in and they will pass it up to the judge. What would be advisable for my next steps? I dont know if BW have slipped on this due to COVID or they have just given up but is there a way i can take advantage of their lack of comms?
  17. Right you are, I will respond to the court tomorrow and tell them I wish for this to be heard by phone/video call i have attached the contract. Note, I have queried in my WS that there is no evidence that the contract is still in effect. Photo.pdf
  18. Right I have received the hearing bundle from BW legal (100 pages of wasted tree!) and having looked through it, all looks ok (I wouldn’t put it past them to alter it!) considering my WS has directly countered all of their points in theirs, is there any need for this to be heard on a phone call or can I just agree to let it be heard on the papers? Whilst I want to waste their money, I also don’t want to waste my time but I’m not sure how much of an influence I would have if I was able to cross examine?
  19. Thanks DX, so i assume going down the paper hearing route is acceptable and i do not need to submit anything additional? BW have emailed me this afternoon to say the claimant is happy with this and they are also happy to compile the hearing bundle. Do i need to compile anything for my bundle or literally just resubmit my WS?
  20. Hi All, Have received this letter today from my local court. I think what it is basically saying is that due to the COVID situation, they want to do a on the papers hearing but could someone confirm? What action should i take from here? court_letter_30042020.pdf
