  1. can you please review below and advise of any changes? Ref PCN: **** VRN: **** PCN Date: 05/12/2019 Issue Date (Posted): 06/01/2020 I write in response to your so-called “Letter Before Claim”, received in relation to PCN Number xxxx, issued by MET Parking Services for alleged parking breaches. I am writing to confirm that I have no intention of paying these ridiculous and made-up sums of money for allegedly breaking some imaginary contract with your client. You also scored a big own goal when you tried to sneak in £70 Unico
  2. Actually the CST has sent me the form to fill in, please see attached. Scan 01 Feb 2021.pdf
  3. No it is linked to the thread about electric bay parking notice. I am receiving the letters for that one.
  4. I had below post created almost a year ago and now I have received Letter Before Claim from CST Law Firm who has been instructed by MET Parking Services to commence legal action against me. For below post I can not reply as no help will be available hence creating this new one. The reason I didn't reply to below post for long time because last year I sopped receiving letters from CST and now since last one or two months I have started receiving letters again. Not sure if the gap between two letters is more than a month than case is still valid but looking forward to get some hel
  5. @Will Goodfellow you didn't make any clarification on they not responding to my letter. I think if they respond means what I said can also be looked at as right argument. If they think person has lied then they also must respond to prove it. is that not the case?
  6. @Will Goodfellow what do you define as a grace period? 10 minutes, 30 minutes or 1 hour? remember they haven't responded to my letter either. I don't think this is anything about lie. While they haven't followed POFA protocol does it matter if I mention about grace period?
  7. same as posted on my another thread shall I go for the option of POPLA appeal in this case as I think there is still time to do it in this case.
  8. I read the below post today where the issue was related to Disabled Bay Parking and person used POPLA to appeal and won successfully. I wonder if I would have gone on the same route there was a chance for me too to get out of this successfully. The basis on which person won the appeal was because Notice to Keeper does not comply with Schedule 4 of the POFA 2012, this also applies in my case. Although in my case I had to first appeal to MET and then POPLA not sure it was applicable in below case where parking company involved was Euro Car Parks.
  9. @ericsbrother - I looked at some of the past threads but those are either incomplete or still on going but for the one you mentioned above is there any chance for you to provide me link please? Many Thanks.
  10. I have got few letters begging for money now but I wonder shall I at least sent them letter acknowledging this and informing that I am not ready to pay or something? as sitting idle doesn't seem like a good idea.
  11. received letter from DR+ again today but this time they mentioned that they have advised MET to now take court action against me to recover the amount outstanding. They also mentioned that to avoid the cost and inconvenience of court MET has proposed to extend the payment deadline for a further 14 days means I should pay the outstanding amount by 05/02/2020 or can set up three months instalment plan before this date. At this point the only question I have is when this goes to court are all the communications will be through letters or will there be scenario that I may
  12. Today I received NTK from MET with mention of Parking Charge Amount £100 is Due. The date of the issue of the notice is mentioned as 6th Jan 2020 which surprises me as it took almost 7 days to arrive in post. It also mentions that 28 days from the date of the notice, if the amount is unpaid then they have right to recover that from me. @Ericsbrother, Please see attached single image showing where my car was parked and second set of images showing signage. Scan_28_Jul_2019_(1).pdf
  13. I received another letter from DRP (recovery agent) around 10th Jan 2020 with notice of intended court action again, if I don't pay £170 parking charge by 21st Jan 2020. Letter also mentions that if MET takes court action against me and if they win they may ask the court to order that I pay their court fees, solicitor's costs as well as parking charge.
  14. @sparkeyrjp - I have children and all parents and child bays were occupied (unfortunately no body receives ticket on those bays) so I searched for other empty spaces except disabled bays so only option was to park in electric charge point bays and there were plenty of those available if any body needed to use the electric charge point.
  15. 1 The date of infringement? ANS: 5th Dec 2019 2 Have you yet appealed to the parking company yet? [Y/N?] ANS: N have you received a Notice To Keeper? (NTK) [must be received by you between 29-56 days] ANS: N 5 Who is the parking company? ANS: MET Parking Services Limited 6. where exactly [Carpark name and town] did you park? ANS: (840) Arla Old Dairy, Ruislip, HA4 0FY ............................. For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. ANS: BPA.
  16. After shopping at ASDA when I returned to my car in the car park (operated by MET), which was parked in the bay marked for electric vehicles I saw PCN attached to my car's windscreen and it was regarding electric bay abuse. My car is not an electric car but is this PCN fair?
  17. Thank you @ericsbrother for your last response. Just to inform the next event in my case here yesterday I have received the letter from Debt Recovery Plus about paying parking charge of £170.00 and if I don't pay it by 22/11/2019 then they will recommend MET to take court action against me.
  18. @dx100uk - it may be a stupid question from me but does this any way affect the credit history? if not then I take this as safe to ignore. I appreciate your help.
  19. @dx100uk - ok I will ignore this but just a question since the signage at the parking shows £100 can they ever charge beyond that?
  20. Ok so what shall I do at this point, ignore the notice or send some communication? how long do I need to do this? Do I have to keep doing this until this goes to court? and in that scenario how would I defend my self is there any form that I will have to use? also does the fact that they sent me the last communication after 28 days of the previous one can that help here? Will this cost me if the case goes to court?
  21. When I thought that it is almost over today I have got Parking Charge Notice Reminder from MET mentioning the charge of £100 remain outstanding and that the charge needs to be paid within 14 days of the letter (4th Oct 2019) to avoid escalating through the instruction of solicitors/debt recovery agents to secure immediate payment or the issuing of court proceedings. They also mentioned that the independent appeal service, POPLA is no longer available.
  22. If I get offer for the course of course will accept it but I would also like to highlight that the place this happened has the speed sign of 30 on one side and 40 on another side which can be genuine as one side of traffic can go faster then the opposite side but can that help any way in this case?
