  1. I'm just writing my WS now so will post shortly. I've replied to the email from BW instructing them not to use my email or telephone number. I did not respond to their question. I'd appreciate the opinions of members, how likely do you feel BW are to pay the £25 court fee?
  2. It’s more than likely I included it on the N180, Dx. However, I only returned that to the court.
  3. Hi Dave, I’ll get back to you with that asap. Regarding suing NCP for ignoring the SAR, isn’t my case rather weak unless I find the proof of postage? I’ve just received an email direct from BWLegal: —————————— Dear Sir Claim number: *claim number* Hearing on: 29 November 2021 We refer to the above matter. As per the court order dated 09 August 2021 the Claimant is to arrange the telephone hearing. Please can you confirm that the telephone number of *My mobile number* is the correct number to use for the purposes of the hearing. Yours faithfully Nabeela Ahmed Paralegal bwlegal® —————————— Is this normal? It has also come to my work email, I have no idea how they would have my work email address!
  4. Hi FTMDave, Thanks so much for taking the time to write all that. Apologies for the delayed reply, the email notifications have started landing in my junk for some reason. 1. I really cannot remember. The car I was in was hired from Thrifty and it was so long ago I can't be sure. They may have written me in as I was the 'lead' hirer in the company or I may have to dodge Thrifty's administration cost charges. I did do a SAR to NCP and they never responded. I've put the postage receipt somewhere safe and not cannot find it. 2. Yes you do have to put your reg in.
  5. I had Friday 29th in my mind so that I would get it and not miss the Monday deadline. Is that the best course of action? Any thoughts from the forum on my plan of 'prove I'm the driver' idea? Is this silly or worth doing?
  6. Apologies, i accidentally wrote 'defense' instead of witness statement. N157 is attached in it's entirety. N157.pdf
  7. I'm writing my defense before the submission deadline of the 29th and after pouring through these forums my gut feeling is to go down the 'prove it was me' because the car was a company pool car, similar to this thread: I'd greatly appreciate the groups views on this please?
  8. Hi Guys, I've just noticed: I've had nothing in the way of response from the SAR I sent to NCP on the 19th August. Should I do something about this?
  9. Minor update: There was no form to return, just the address and an email address by which I had to say if i agreed to a paper hearing or not. I have emailed (and received an auto reply) to confirm that I do not agree to a paper hearing.
  10. Been trying to log in all weekend but it didn't seem to like my mobile so sorry for not responding sooner guys and thank you for your replies. I assume this is something that has been coming up since covid struck? Am I able to fire back a 1 line rejected or will they need something more? There's no further guidance in the court documents. Off to scour other forums too!
  11. "By 4pm on 6 September 2021 must notify the court in writing or by email whether they agree to the small claim being determined by a judge on the basis of their documentary evidence and written submissions, without attending a hearing at court. If both parties agree, the court will then notify the parties that the small claim is to be determined on the papers and give further discussions" - BW Have written to say they agree to a paper hearing. The claimant must pay the fee by 1st Nov. Witness statements and documents to the court and each other 28 days before final hearing - so 1st Nov.
  12. I had been through a similar process with a catalogue debt and was sure that mediation looked better in the eyes of the court, I guess the whole 'I tried' attitude.
  13. So firstly I must explain, that i believe I failed to send off a SAR to NCP when I was dealing with BW before. In the time between now and the previous postings: The mediation call took place. I stated in the mediation that I did not believe I filled in the paperwork to name myself as the driver and that the hire company that own the car did that (even though its hired by my employer not me personally), nobody in my company would have done this either. However, in the interests of a quick resolution I said I was not admitting anything but I am prepared to pay a reasonable settlement. They only came back with a ridiculous offer and mediation ended with it progressing to court and now the court docs have come from my local court.
  14. So this has reignited after a long period of quiet. It's been allocated to my local court and they are asking if I am ok with a "paper hearing". Any advise on this particular question? I must respond by the 6th Sept.
  15. Here is the response to the CPR. I've had to compress this quite a lot. If not readable I'll try again. CPR Response-compressed.pdf
  16. At present yes. I’m assuming that’s a more recent Covid related thing though. Yes. Defence filled in time Dx
  17. What an idiot I am! I went back to get these images of the sign the very next day but then got caught up in life and forgot to upload them here. I've today also received a response from BWLegal which i will upload too after editing out personal details. 14050A9C-D941-40FB-AFCD-DC98E32A7038-converted-compressed.pdf
  18. Interesting stuff, really good to know. Thank you. I’ll head back tomorrow when it’s clear and bright to get some new up close shots!
  19. I'm not planning on backing out now. Just wanted to be upfront and accurate with members on here. Let's play their game. From reading as much possible so far, am I correct in thinking that with some robust points, even if they were to be victorious in court, it is likely that they would have their frivolous "Unicorn Food Tax" charges reigned in? That's the impression I'm getting from other posts. Again, thank you all so much for your assistance thus far, it's sincerely appreciated!
  20. Around the time I used that carpark quite frequently and would always pay on the App. I don't often carry change and the pay machines there were notorious for not connecting for card payments - NCP always blamed Vodafone's coverage. If my dates are correct, I had a new staff member with me on that day and we were headed for lunch. I was also in a hire car. As the hire car wasn't registered to the parking App I think it's highly likely I intended to pay for the parking when sat down for lunch but ultimately failed to do so.
  21. I haven't submitted yet, following your advice and waiting until 3pm-ish I checked back through my work calendar thoroughly and I believe I remember the day in question and think I'm likely in the wrong. Is it safe/wise to explain here?
  22. Thanks Dave, greatly appreciated! Working on the SAR right now. I've attached my images in a PDF NCP.pdf
