  1. Thanks DX, going through now, apologies. C1. Do I state No, that the Claim is unjustified, or state yes? D - Local court to me, obv no experts and only me as witness. Thanks again!
  2. Hi all, the ball keeps rolling, and unfortunately arrived home to this after a week away, so have a quick turn around to get this back to them. There was also included a mediation info sheet, which I assume you've all seen before. Should I go this route and try to get them to drop it for nothing or just go with the below form? Not entirely sure why it's coming from Northhampton, as I live in London near the car park, also in London. So assume this form is to get the case assigned to London? Thanks again for your help.

  3. Thanks dx100uk, Reading through the prior art, am I correct to think these are the points you recommend in the defence. Glad I have a bit of time to get this right, but hope to get it sorted so I can get on with my life. 1. The Defendant is the recorded keeper of [motor vehicle]. 2. It is denied that the Defendant entered into a contract with the Claimant. 3. In any case it is denied that the Defendant broke the terms of a contract with the Claimant. 4. The Claimant is attempting double recovery by adding an additional sum not included in the original offer. 5. The Particulars of Claim is denied in its entirety. It is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief at all. Original point 3 is interesting: 3. As held by the Upper Tax Tribunal in Vehicle Control Services Limited v HMRC [2012] UKUT 129 (TCC), any contract requires offer and acceptance. The Claimant was simply contracted by the landowner to provide car-park management services and is not capable of entering into a contract with the Defendant on its own account, as the car park is owned by and the terms of entry set by the landowner. Accordingly, it is denied that the Claimant has authority to bring this claim. But from what I've seen they are licensed to pursue people with PCNs. So assume it's a null point. Also, on my point 3, should I mention that I contend that I did purchase and display a valid ticket, it was the fault of a broken ticket machine (which has since been fixed) that allowed me to purchase a ticket without entering my registration details. This machine also did not have any of their 'contract details' displayed on it. Thus meaning I had no information on said contract at point of purchase, extending to point 2. Thanks all!
  4. CPR Sent yesterday, Should I get on writing up defence? Is it best to writ up briefly, focusing on main points of defence, and should I leave factors such as no 'car park rules shown on point of purchase' out for the time being? Cheers
  5. AOS is sorted, Just working through the CPR form letter now. Besides the 3 doc types the template is there anything else worth adding to this request? Realise the CCTV is likely a lost cause, but Is this the place to request it anyway?
  6. Well speaking with Morrisons last year, they essentially said all CCTV and transaction data is only kept for a month. On finding out that the PPC owned the CCTV, I thought it would be a good point if going to court that they will obviously have footage of me purchasing a ticket then displaying it in my car. My worry is that they have deleted their footage, but I could also use this as a point, if you were attempting to prove someone didn't purchase a ticket surely they should have retained that footage to show wrongdoing. At the moment I need to know if I should write to the carpark, requesting the footage of the day, under ICO guidelines. It's just going to a problem if they revert to a 'we only hold our CCTV footage on file for 1 month' response. Thanks
  7. ANPR Camera on the way in/out, Then 2 or 3 CCTV cameras in the car park, checked with the Morrisons who do not have access to the footage. All cameras owned and operated by the carpark.
  8. Thanks very much indeed dx100uk. Some great information in there, will have a thorough read, but definitely the information I need right now! I'm keen to request the car parks CCTV footage of the day, should I hold off until it's confirmed we're going to court, or is now the right time to request it?

  9. Right last version before I throw it in the Post. Dear Civil Enforcement Limited (CEL) I write in response to your Letter Before Action - Claim for Debt , which I have received in relation to PCN Number: xxx I am writing to notify you that I have no intention of paying these ridiculous invented penaltys, for allegedly breaking an imaginary contract with yourselves. Muddied misplaced signage does not magically create a contract, that after having paid for a ticket, of which you are well aware, allow you to harass and extort me for money. Especially in the current climate, bombarding me with invented penaltys has cast a dark cloud over an already incredibly difficult year. You have also put yourselves in a poor standing moving forward, aside harrassing me with threats of bailiffs being sent to my house without due process, but illegally adding a £82 administration fee, presumably as some sort of unicorn food tax. I suggest that you look at DDJ Harvey’s judgement at Lewes County Court on 05/02/2020 (Claim number F0HM9E9Z). He was not very happy with these made-up amounts. You can either drop this foolishness now or I will instruct legal council, compile my case against your dispicible company, and look forward to walking over you in court. I hope we can call this matter over with, and that to that end I will never have to suffer another one of your pointless letters again.
  10. Using miley_b ob 's great letter as a template, is the below along the right lines: Dear Civil Enforcement (CEL) Limited I write in response to your Letter Before Action - Claim for Debt , which I have received in relation to PCN Number: ?????, you have issued in response to a case I have explained is baseless. I am writing to notify you that I have no intention of paying these ridiculous and made-up sums of money, for allegedly breaking some imaginary contract with yourselves. Expecting me to pay you a baseless fine for not entering my cars registration details amounts to extortion. You already have my £2 for parking in your car park, a fact I'm sure you realise due to the fact you own all CCTV in the carpark. I would also reference the fact that the parking meter that issued me a ticket without entering my registration has since been fixed, which shows that you are fully aware of the problems it has caused. You have also scored a big own goal by adding a £82 admin fee. Presumably, this admin fee is some sort of unicorn food tax. I suggest that you look at DDJ Harvey’s judgement at Lewes County Court on 05/02/2020 (Claim number F0HM9E9Z). He was not very happy with these made-up amounts, was he? You can either drop this foolishness now or get a good spanking in court. The choice is yours. Hopefully we will not be speaking again, xxxx
  11. Thanks DX100uk, Will dig in. If there's a specific article to look at I'd appreciate the link. I assume I write them a letter stating that the claim is unjustified etc. Will look for templates on the forum. Thanks for all your on going help. Obviously don't want to give these buggers anything if I don't have to.
  12. Right, A big boy come this time, Should I be getting my ducks in a row now? I assume I can use the included form to request their cctv records of the day, and their planning permission for signage and ANPR cameras in the car park? Or is it time to suck it up, pay them a stupid amount of money and save myself from having my credit score buggered? Cheers all Y PCN-250321s.pdf
  13. Just to keep things updated, Just received the below, it appears a debt collection group have taken over the case and will be the ones to take me to court. Also very useful that I received the letter on Sunday, missing the payment date stated in the letter. Just wondering if now is a good time to contact Civil Enforcement Limited regarding the CCTV footage of the Carpark, as if it does go to court this will be the best piece of evidence in my defence? Will have a look for a letter template for requesting this in the forums, but if someone has a direct link I'd appreciate it. As always thanks for advice in advance. All the best, Yewneik IMG_9500.pdf
  14. Hi all, Just wanted to check in with the latest nonsense from these guys. They say the debt will be passed to a collection agency, is that even possible with out going to court? Their threats seem to just skip this part of the process out? Should I be responding to them that I will happily discuss the case in court. Just getting wary of sitting on an ever mounting, if total tosh, bill. All the best, David final reminder.pdf
  15. ...no, but I guess I am pre-empting. If I do receive a 'letter of claim', this is the information I have on my side. If I do receive a Letter of Claim, will I be liable for the Unicorn Tax, as a previous poster so wonderfully put it. Or will I only be held for the £100 fine? I'm just getting the fear I guess, while I know that I am in the right, I'm just getting worried they will hit me with a whopping bill for making them escalate it to court, then that I don't have enough on my side in defence. I realise this may be the result of watching far too many crime dramas. Again, thanks everyone for their patience and help.
  16. Morrisons want nothing to do with it, literally washing their hands of the entire thing. The only thing I have in defence of my claim, is my bank statement showing an £8 transaction in that Morrisons with no further details. Morrisons now have no record of their CCTV or the transaction, as it was too late when I requested it. All the CCTV in the Car Park is owned by the car park. So when claiming in previous appeals the CCTV would show I paid, they know that I don't have that footage, I could request the footage, but will involve getting backing in touch with CEL. Getting a bit antsy as of what to do next. Would rather this whole thing would go away, but it from other forums it does sound like CEL are cantankerous. And it would go to a game of who would show up in court. I'm just not sure a bank statement is enough? All the best, DM
  17. Update with the notice from the DVLA, The signage in the Car Park states that all claims will be followed up by CEL, am I right in thinking that it's against DVLA rules because CEL are not the Carpark Owner and it's illegal to apply for records for a non member. IE CEL were allowed to get my data, but not to chase it on behalf of the car park? I guess this is the tricky bit, I am up against CEL, and they were wrong to obtain my information as they are not the owner of the carpark? Thanks all! David CEL_DVLA.pdf
  18. Also, revisited the carpark today and it appears they have fixed the machine. So you can no longer purchase a ticket without entering a reg number. Very infuriating. But we shall see what comes next. Cheers all.
