  1. As you said, no damage done, but a shame I didn't know this. Pretty much my exact words to the clerk were "I intended to request £95 expenses if I won because I thought the case was unreasonable. Is there any way I can get a judge to rule on that now the case is withdrawn." The answer was no. obviously I was given wrong information. I guess others reading this thread will now know that this is not the case and that they should in fact turn up anyway as you said.
  2. That's interesting to hear about expenses. I asked the court clerk about that and they told me there was nothing I could do. (well I assume court clerk - whoever I spoke to on the phone at the court)
  3. Got it in writing too, with the court also emailed and a phone call from the court confirming it.
  4. Just an update - BW Legal Called me this morning to say they were withdrawing the action. The hearing was supposed to be this afternoon. So I guess that's a win! Something of note. I recently signed up for a credit rating web site and 2 days ago realised that BW legal had requested 3 credit searches on me without my permission. I emailed BW legal and the court with a screen grab and indicated I felt this was a breach of the data protection act and that I would be bringing it up as part of the case. I have no idea if that helped or if it was never their intention to follow through anyway.
  5. Thanks lookinforinfo, but I'm sure a judge won't be interested in a webpage, could be anything, fake or real. Is there a way I can actually properly refer to these cases?
  6. So this case seems destined for court with a court date set. I have recently seen that another person has successfully appealed at the same car park using the same defence as me - i.e. that the signage indicates the operator is Excel, but the claimant is VCS. I'm not permitted to post the link, but you can find it if you search VCS v Ms E at Sheffield. DJ Weir My specific question is, can I refer to this case as precedent and if so, how do I do it properly? Is there somewhere I can get the judges summing statement or similar? Phil
  7. things are moving forward. I put in my defence and I received a letter from BW Legal saying they had been instructed to pursue the case. I have now received a letter indicating the case will be allocated to the small claims track. A couple of questions 1) Should I agree to having the case referred to the small claims mediation service? The only outcome that I'm really interested in is them dropping the case. 2) In terms of days I'm not available - well I have a holiday booked, but I work full time some days are more difficult to take leave than othe
  8. @lookinforinfo I was going to do exactly that, but @ericsbrother suggested not doing so after I said I had done this already 6 months ago (although without the reference to previous claims as I didn't know about those). A little confused, but I think I will write to BW Legal again and say this.
  9. @dx100uk What is the two line defence you refer to? I can only find the multiple paragraph defence in the sticky post at the top of this forum (sorry can't link as I need to have at least 10 posts to post a url) Phil
  10. Thanks @ericsbrother As it happens I am both employed and self employed. If the hearing were a weekday I would have to take leave to attend - but I will read up on this to work out what I can claim. Pointers to anything that summarises this is welcome. I have now read up on what a CPR31.14 is and seen the thread on the legal forum. I've now also worked out the meaning of the acronyms from @dx100uk so it makes more sense. So the documents referred to in the particulars are the PCN and the payment demands. So A few more questions: 1) Should I specifically
  11. Thanks for all the comments - although @dx100uk, I'm afraid I don't really understand your post. Just because I have done research doesn't mean it is correct research! I wrote to BW about 6 months ago and told them I had no contract with VCS based on the signage. I will write again and say that I will request costs. I am self employed so I guess if I won I could be entitled to loss of earnings for attending the hearing? I have only briefly read the acceptable costs document linked above. Are those the only costs I can claim? I will add the other cases to my defence. Thanks a
  12. Hi I have been in dispute over a private parking charge for over a year. I thought they had given up and had not heard from them for 6 months, then I got another demand letter and now a county court claim form. I would welcome some advice. The issue date is 10 March 2017, I have filed an Acknowledgement of service The Particulars of Claim reads 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 17/12/2015 (Issue Date) at 20:41:09 at Smyth Street Anpr Scheme Std (60-100).
