  2. I have now received a Claim Form from the County Court Business Centre. Can you please advise me on my next steps. Thank you
  3. Just for the sake of clarity, the Notification of Instruction does say will, as in "We look forward to hearing from you before deadline, failing which formal action will commence.......
  4. I responded to the Letter Before Claim with a snotty letter to which I have received no reply. Now I have received a Notification of Instruction from ELMS. The Letter Before Claim contained all the information you mentioned. Just asking whether to reply to ELMS or not.
  5. I have now received a Notification of Instruction from ELMS Legal demanding payment or they will take court action. Any further advice.
  6. I am in a similar position although my letter from ELMS is entitled Notification of Instruction. The time scale is similar from the date of the alleged offence. Should I do anything now? Thank you for your help.
  7. For over 2 years now I have been harassed by Vehicle Control Services Limited for a Parking Charge when my car stopped for under 1 minute at John Lennon Airport on double red lines. I have received multiple letters from VCS and 3 Debt Collection Agencies but as I believe that the vehicle was not parked and that there has been no breach of any contractual agreement, I have not responded to any of them. Their latest communication from VCS Litigation department is a Letter Before Claim and I am asking if now is the time to respond and if so, what I should say? Many thanks
  8. I guess a lot of people, like me, do not know the powers that a dca have and the Agency is using that lack of knowledge as part of their scare tactics. Nice.
  9. Hi Sojacob I have followed the guidance from this group and not replied to any of their letters. They continue to escalate their approach and I am now being written to by a company called Debt Recovery Plus, They have just sent me a Notice of intended court action, whatever that means?! It then states that they will pass my file to their client recommending that they take court action against me. All most confusing, but I am ignoring this one on the assumption that it is not a proper Letter Before Action or from a solicitor and that I am in the right. Hope this helps.
  10. www.supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2015-0116.html does refer to the Beavis case. Thanks for your reply.
  11. I have now received a letter from Debt Recovery Plus who have been asked to collect payment. My crime, they say, is 46) Stopping in a Zone where stopping is prohibited. If I do not pay by 31st July they will recommend to their client "that they take out court action against me". They quote a case in November 2015 where the Supreme Court ruled that the parking charge was lawful. Details are on line at www.supremecourt.uk/cases/uksc-2015-0116.html. This is a very unpleasant technique to extract money from people, like me, who have never had to deal with these kind of people before. I guess the advice still stands not to pay or reply.
  12. Just an update. I have now received a Demand for Payment which says that they may commence legal proceedings if I do not pay, increases the payment to £160 and puts my case in the hands of their Debt Management Team. It also references ParkingEye Limited v Beavis UKSC 67 in the Supreme Court. Thanks for you input and support so far.
  13. Thanks. So you have saved me a letter. As I do not intend to pay there is no value in writing at all!
