  1. Hi All, An update on the progress of this.... They are pursuing the claim and will be taking me to court I have no details of dates etc, just letter of their intent to progress the claim.
  2. Hi Ericsbrother, thank you for your message. No skeleton defense has been submitted as yet, i was told by DX to not submit anything at all until i was told what to say so it would be great if someone could advise what the skeleton defense should say?
  3. Hi Team, Just wondering if there is any update or if you need anything from me at all?
  4. thanks i have put that in my diary. should i just wait for Eric et al to message? Thank you again for your time and help it is very much appreciated
  5. Thank you, i will acknowledge now. The claimant is Excel, with documents going to BW Legal The issue date is the 26/05/2016 PoC The Claimant's Claim is for the sum of £100.00 being monies due from the Defendant to the Claimant in respect of a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) issued on the 14/08/2015 (issue Date) at 14.17.09 at the Peel Centre - Stockport Anpr Charging Scheme std (60-100) The PCN relates to Kia under the Registration XXX XXXX. The terms of the PCN allowed the Defendant 28 days from the issue date to pay the PCN, but the defendant failed to do so. Despite demand having been made, the Defendant has failed to settle their outstanding liability. The claim also includes Statuary interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8% pr annum a daily rate of 0.02 from 14/08/2015 to 25/5/2016 being an amount of £5.72. The claimant also claims £54.00 contractual costs pursuant to PCN Terms and Conditions . ok all acknowledged with MCOL
  6. DX100uk whilst I appreciate your stance hind site will not help now, and I had already submitted the appeal before seeking help. Advise was requested when I had been contacted by debt collection agencies for the already appealed case. So whilst my post clearly irritates you, it was not meant to do so and it was not in the ignorance that you assumed. You say write nothing, do nothing unless told by the experts but i am yet to be advised what my next step should be? i now have a Court Claim that i need to respond to, and advise on how to progress and defed this would be much appreciated (minus the judgement.)
  7. They responded to say that whilst they appreciated my time to appeal that the original charge was still to be upheld. It was then sent to two debt collectors where the amount being sought has changed with each letter that has been received. I have received a number of phone calls, all of which i have maintained the same response. is there any justification in the amount going form £60 to £100 as well as the solicitors costs at £104?
  8. Thanks Guys, so the breakdown is Principal Debt £100 Interest £5.72 Court Fees £25.00 Solicitors costs £104 Outstanding balance £234.72 My letter said the following To whom it may concern I wish to appeal PCN no: ...... under the grounds the 1999 Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations. The penalty charge that has been issued is massively disproportionate to the effect that this instance has had on the car park owner, and under the above act, any compensation sum demanded must be ‘fair and reasonable.’ The cost to park for up to 3 hours in this car park is £1.30 for up to 3 hours. It has been shown that I entered the car park at 13.36 and left at 14.17. This is less than one hour and the penalty charge of £60 is massively disproportionate to the time that I was actually in the car park for, and works out as a charge of £1.30 per MINUTE to park! Whilst I accept that I was parked without a ticket, this was for the sole purpose of finding a toilet for my small child. The only toilets on the Peel centre were in Hobby Craft, and these were closed. This then meant that we had to go over to Costa Coffee and wait in a large line to use the facilities. To settle this issue I believe that a fair charge is £5, this compensates Excel for the space that I took for the 40 minutes that we were in the car park, and £3.70 in compensation, this also equates to TWO further cars parking for up to three hours, and is fair to both parties. I will not pay anything over and above this amount. Kind regards
  9. Hi all, A few months ago i posted asking for advice between BW legal and excel parking, i followed the advice to not pay, and now i have received a County Court Claim form to the sum of £234.72..... Going back to my original post, i do accept liability for parking without a ticket....This was not to go shopping or because i ran out of time but because my daughter needed the loo and i had no means to pay, as card was not accepted and i had no cash or change, and there are no cash points. I appealed to Excel and offered £5 to settle which was rejected. My theory behind £5 was that it covered the £1.50 parking sum for up to two hours (no where near the time we ere there!), then compensation for the time that i was there. Can anyone please advise what the best argument is for not paying the full fine? I initially didn't pay because of the disproportionate charge but don't know if this is the best argument to use? Also will i be expected to go to Northampton to defend this? as this is where the County Court is that they have used? Any advice is much appreciated
  10. thank you and the figure was me exaggerating my panic lol!! they have discussed the charges of £100 and legal fees £54 and any other fees that will be incurred by going to court i just dont want those fees to be astronomical should i ignore it and it come back to bite me in the bum!! I have seen a number of excel posts and their illegitimacy but i have also seen instances where it has ended up in court so i am just being cautious!
  11. Thanks dx100uk, i did look at that thread and i know there are loads of people asking the same question, and wanting the same reassurance!! My main worry was that if it goes to court was that i will be hit with their cost's and legal fees and what is currently £154 will escalate to £3154 etc!! Much appreciate your time and response!
  12. Hi, I was wondering if you could offer some advice around Excel parking and BW legal? On the 14/08/2015 I parked in Stockport Peal Center car park without a ticket as my youngest (4 years old) of three children needed the toilet ,i had no change and there was no pay by phone or card option. As i had all three children and the first toilet we tried was out of working order it took around 35 minutes between entering and leaving the car park. I received a penalty charge from excel, which i disputed due to the inflated charges (£1.30 for 3 hours to park), but offered £5 as a form of settlement. Excel refused this settlement and demanded full charge. I have ignored all communication since then which has included an number of communications from a debt collection agency with rising and falling offers. Excel have now passed the debt on to BW Legal that are threatening court and CCJ action if i dont pay the now £100 charge and £54 legal costs that have now been incurred. can you please advise how i should progress?
