  1. That's a brilliant idea and definitely worth the trouble. Parking companies should be held accountable for their frivolous claims. I know only too well how much time and effort goes into defending them, especially when you have no relevant experience and are starting from scratch. Even if they decide to withdraw, there's still been massive disruption in your life. Go for it!!
  2. Hi laluna - well done on your draft WS. I noticed on section 4 under Contracts you'd left in the company name VCS - just an oversight. With some reluctance, I actually removed most of the section headed ANPR which you've included at the end of your WS, on erics brother's advice, as he rightly said it was commentary and not directly relevant to our case. The WS that's posted in our thead is not actually the final version, as I tidied it up after that. I did also post up the notes for cross examination (a blow by blow attack on the claimant's statement), whi
  3. Cant help wondering whether SRS is claiming support under the government's generous furlough scheme. It would be ironical if the taxpayer were to be supporting his dodgy outfit to rip the public off!
  4. Honestly EmmaTPockets - this is a "perfect letter" to quote Mr. Trump! It makes the point. I wouldn't agonise further over it.
  5. Emma, you're obviously a very sweet person who finds it difficult to be obstreperous, but you have to remember who you're dealing with and what he plans to try to get out of you, without just cause. You need to be on the offensive right from the start, or he'll think you're a pushover! Remember you're trying to avoid hours and hours of preparation for a court hearing - been there, done that! You'll have to take a deep breath and beef up I'm afraid, to try to make this go away. Try to get yourself in angry mode, feel bitter and resentful for a couple of minutes and vent your wrath! I'm only sor
  6. Attached are photos of the signage at the Berkeley Centre taken last July. You will see that all the signs clearly state that the carpark is managed by Excel and would have been managed by Excel at the time of your alleged breach. In the light of this evidence, I would be inclined to include in your snotty letter, some words to the following effect: You have no idea who this company VCS is, nor why they are asking you to pay them money. Their correspondence refers to the carpark at the Berkeley Precinct, but you know for a fact that this carpark is managed by Excel Services, a
  7. Can you please clarify the current terms and conditions for the carpark? There is now a ticket machine, possibly installed by Excel when they took over the management. Do you have to take a ticket however long you intend to stay, whether you will be in the free parking time or not? Do you have to specify how long you intend to stay at the point of arrival? Are you allowed 1 free hour and then you have to buy a ticket? I presume the maximum period of parking is 2 hours but only 1 hour is free. Is that correct? Do you have a photo of the advertised ter
  8. 21 + 2 = 23. Second thought - I believe this car park has been managed by Excel Services since 2018. Check the signs in the car park. I believe VCS is no longer managing the car park and Excel is a completely separate company, with separate registration at Companies House. Therefore they have no business bringing any claim at all - VCS has no contract with the landowner and cannot offer a contract to the motorist. These are defence points but you need to send the snotty letter and follow the procedures recommended on this site before you get to that stage. Be ultra car
  9. Thank you - yes my garden has never looked so good! I've become a bit fanatical about it. Others working from home, so we're doing OK and so far have managed to get plenty of fresh food. I hope you're coping well too.
  10. First thought is that NTK date is 21/1/20 and date of infringement is 8/1/20. Since 2 days must be allowed for first class mail (assuming it was sent by mail), then it looks like it did not comply with the 14 day delivery requirement, as it would have arrived a day late.
  11. Oh dear sorry to hear that EmmaTPockets, especially at a time like this. Fear not - I'm sure everyone on the site will be glad to help. Go ahead and post up the info.
  12. Good Afternoon, I can confirm that the court has marked this case discontinued, and this matter will not proceed any further as it stands, Kind Regards This was the message today so I think it's safe to say Goodbye Simon. Maybe he can donate his carparks to Covid testing centres! They're not likely to be used much otherwise.
