  1. No they don't waste money on Gladstone's or other Solicitors now. They represent themselves and did so when they recently lost the case for this same location. In fact Gladstones's did do that case up to the LBC, then NPM represented themselves in court. My LBC was direct from NPM, although you could see it was a clone of the Gladstones version.
  2. When you say heard on the papers do you mean no one has to attend court, the Judge just reviews the documents submitted by both parties?
  3. I completed my directions questionnaire & sent a copy to the Claimant as instructed. The Claimant presumably completed the same, but I did not receive a copy of theirs. Wasn't I supposed to? I have now received the Notice of Transfer of Proceedings and await the Judges's directions.
  4. There are charges stated towards the bottom of the sign under the Parking Charge section. £70 reduced to £40 if paid within 14 days.
  5. You certainly are cutting things a bit fine & your friend went over the time by many times the allowed 10 minute grace period. If the signage was in order I would have have just paid the £40!
  6. 3 Copies. One to the court, one to the Claimant and one for myself, correct? And yes I was going to cover up my email address and phone numbers on the Claimants copy, but will do the signature too. After all they didn't even give a name on their Claim form! Can this be emailed or does it need to be sent by post?
  7. He has witnessed the parking company breaking various IPC codes of practice, spoken to the Tesco store Manager and head office at length about complaints/breaches of COP's related to them, he has taken photographic evidence for me at the site, written complaints to Tesco, which lead to their contract being suspended/cancelled and to our local MP and the IPC.
  8. I received the N180 Directions Questionnaire, which I need to post by the weekend. I am going to say no to mediation, because I have tried all that before and it failed. The claimant has made it very clear that will only accept payment in full! I will of course agree that the small claims track is appropriate and is to be heard in the local court to myself and the Claimant. No to seek permission for using expert evidence. I would like to have 1 other person giving evidence on my behalf at the hearing. Someone who has been watching the operator closel
  9. There was no distrust. Just a question requiring an answer and I think I have justified why I asked it. I eventually got an answer and also confirmation that the case I had used as an example was genuine. Now all understood and we can move on. Subject closed.
  10. Good. Quoting a website called Parking PRANKster, with the slogan "putting fun back into parking" is hardly credible to those who are not in the know! Now Martin Lewis and MSE might be considered more credible, but sometimes I would trust PP more.
  11. You missed the point/question I was asking. Would a Judge accept a Pranksters screen dump which does not have a surname, just Mr K and if there is only the court mentioned and no case number. If it doesn't, how is he to know he case is genuine from being on a website? There is a lot of rubbish on the internet (fake news) as well as good! I have all the details of the previous case that was dismissed and yes hopefully I will get the same Judge and he will remember the previous case.
  12. Thanks. This issue was reported in a local newspaper, never got to a national one, nothing changed afterwards, until November 2018, the Tesco landlord/site developer had one too many complaints and had to take action. At the moment to IPC are doing a lot of tweeting saying how wonderful they are and how they are raising the bar. A family member has been critically responding to some of their tweets and they didn't like this, so they have now blocked him! One relevant tweet to this case, but he was blocked before he could comment it.
  13. I have a large folder on my PC, backed up of course, with loads of information, including advice received on this forum and know everything about the case they lost. It was only only a couple of months ago so all still fresh in everyones memory, but all documented in this case takes a long to get to court . My knowledge is growing by the day so the longer it takes the better. If I had done my IAS appeal with what I know now, I might have even won that!
  14. I live in Northampton and the Claimant are here too. If they represent themselves as they did the last time they had a case for this same location dismissed there will be no train fares. If they decide to use Gladstones Solicitors, and NPM stated they don't, but I know they have done in the past, they quote on their website the cost is £25 to 70 plus VAT. Don't know if that includes the return train fare from Cheshire.
  15. Sadly the other woman who recently won her case did not claim any expenses. She was just glad the case was dismissed and wanted to get out of court. I'm sure she could have asked for substantial costs as the first hearing had to be adjourned because the Claimant wasn't prepared, but the defendant was. Can you believe it? Then she had to have a second day off work for the second and final hearing, where the case was dismissed. Yes I am working and I would need to book leave to attend court. What are LiP costs? Loss in Pay and what is the £90?
  16. My Father has been very supportive. If it wasn't for him I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. There certainly have been times when I wished I had just paid the original £60 charge. In fact to encourage me to go all the way with this my Father has pledged to pay any court costs if we loose the case! It is a matter of principle that we win this. If we don't then we will have lost faith in the British justice system.
