  1. Sorry, there's just so much to read through and I can never seem to find stuff that's specifically relevant to me. If it's any consolation, I now know what it's like to be on the other end of inane and repetitive questions, from the forum that I frequent regularly, in my own field!
  2. Ok, I filed the short defence and have received a Notice of Proposed Allocation to the small claims track, along with a N180 Directions Questionnaire. I presume this is standard procedure, but what do I put? Do I agree to the case being referred to Mediation? What about the questions referring to the potential court hearing etc?
  3. Ok, thanks, you've both helped to put my mind at ease, I'll let you know how it goes.
  4. Surely it will help if I explain the ticket was purchased and I still have it etc? They don't know the details as yet.
  5. Thanks for that, appreciate it. I've not had chance yet to have a good read through those links etc, I've got another couple of weeks yet I think. Should that be enough then, along with a brief explanation of what actually happened on the day?
  6. Ok, I'll take a look at those, thanks. I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned my wife was driving, but haven't they covered themselves with 'At all material times the Defendant was the registered keeper and/or driver'. It was my car. No, I've not found out about the land, where would I find this?
  7. Hi, I'm struggling to find the 3-5 line simple defence mentioned that would be appropriate for my case. I'm either getting old or stupid or both, but I seem to get word blindness when it comes to legalese. Could some kind person take a few minutes to spell out what I need to put as my defence please, if I have any? I'd be quite happy to make another donation, would rather it go to you guys than them!
  8. Ok, the CPR has been sent and I filed the AOS today. Sorry, I can't find the actual wording for the 3-5 line simple defence , is it on a sticky somewhere?
  9. I'm struggling with how to actually word my defence, I need to 'state which allegations in the particulars of the claim I deny and my reasons for doing so'. The claim form says that 'if you fail to deny an allegation it may taken that you admit it'. Here is their claim in full: 1. The claim is for a breach of contract for breaching the terms and conditions set on private land. 2.The defendant's vehicle was identified in the Brewery St car park on 2.7.18 in breach of the advertised terms and conditions; namely parked without clearly displaying a valid ticket/permit. 3.At all material times the Defendant was the registered keeper and/or driver. 4.The terms and conditions upon entering private land were clearly displayed at the entrance and in prominent locations. The sign was the offer and the act of entering private land was the acceptance of the offer hereby entering into a contract by conduct. 5.The signs specifically detail the terms and conditions and the consequences of failure to comply, namely a parking charge notice will be issued, and the defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability. 6.The claimant seeks recovery of the parking charge notice, contractual costs and interest. All I can really dispute is that it WAS 'parked clearly displaying a ticket', albeit only for a minute or two before it was blown off, due to no self adhesive part to it.
  10. Hey, thanks for that. Yes, the wife had borrowed the car that day, definitely, but I don't think it was clear on the photos on their site, so I'm not sure how I can prove that I wasn't driving. I'll definitely try and check out that beta, what do they make it so difficult just to register.
  11. Just checked, yes I did receive a Letter Before Claim, I put it aside just thinking it was another threat without looking at it properly. I presume there's no point answering it now, does this change things?
  12. It takes a few days to sort out the Gateway details if you've lost them apparently. I'll look in to the CPR. I don't know what you mean about the letter of claim. I did receive something from about Excel a few months ago maybe, is that what you mean? I just thought it was the usual empty threats, I'm not even sure if I keep it.
  13. I'm having problems on the MCOL site, I tried to register but it sends me to Gov Gateway sign in and I can't remember my details, it's ages since I used it. Am I doing something wrong, is there a workaround or do I have to post it?
  14. Thanks dx, The claim form only arrived yesterday, I wasn't even sure it was an official document as it has photocopied logos/crests etc. Yes, I still have the ticket. Do you think I have a decent defence or will it just blow over anyway?
  15. Hi All, newbie here, hope I'm doing this correctly. Two years ago the wife was using my car and bought a ticket in a train station car park and displayed it on the dashboard. She returned to find a parking charge notice from Excel. It was a very windy day and it had evidently been blown on the the floor of the car as she left. It did not have a self adhesive part to stick to the window. I subsequently followed their online claim procedure and sent a copy of the ticket but the claim was refused. A couple of days ago I received the County Court Business Centre claim form in the post after presuming it would go away after not hearing from them for about a year (the usual threatening letters from debt recovery companies etc). I wish I had paid the original £20 as this has been a big worry and hassle, but I just ignored most of the letters after reading stuff online. Obviously I want to dispute the whole of the claim but do I have a decent defence? I would cite the fact that the only reason the ticket was not displayed was that it could not be stuck to the window. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Name of the Claimant : Excel Parking Services Claimants Solicitors: Unknown Date of issue – 08 July 2020 Date for AOS - 27 July 2020? Date to submit Defence - 07 august - corrected DX What is the claim for – 1. The claim is for a breach of contract for breaching the terms and conditions set on private land. 2.The defendant's vehicle was identified in the Brewery St car park on 2.7.18 in breach of the advertised terms and conditions; namely parked without clearly displaying a valid ticket/permit. 3.At all material times the Defendant was the registered keeper and/or driver. 4.The terms and conditions upon entering private land were clearly displayed at the entrance and in prominent locations. The sign was the offer and the act of entering private land was the acceptance of the offer hereby entering into a contract by conduct. 5.The signs specifically detail the terms and conditions and the consequences of failure to comply, namely a parking charge notice will be issued, and the defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability. 6.The claimant seeks recovery of the parking charge notice, contractual costs and interest. What is the value of the claim? £185.00
