  1. Hi All, Need a little advice as to where i stand and how to proceed. Myself and my partner moved into a new flat in July 2018 where the car park is managed by these clowns. We are one of about 10 who are fortunate enough to have a very big parking space where two cars can be parked back to back. We questioned this in the viewing and was told this was acceptable. The issues with countrywide parking started about a month after we moved in where we got a ticket on one of our cars for being parked incorrectly. This was appealed and of course, lost. It was then appealed to IAS and of course, lost. Since then we have taken the advice on here and i'm hoping that the letter received yesterday from BW legal titled Letter before claim is now the last from these cowboys The main issue i have is that since then, we have received multiple tickets on our vehicles (about 5 i believe) for the reason of "double parking". Thankfully, i have a copy of a letter from these cowboys that was sent to all residents before we moved in specifically highlighting that double parking was allowed in these spaces. This was thrown back at them during one of the appeals and yesterday we have received the appeal rejection saying that the block management have changed their mind, only single vehicles can now park in these spaces and that my appeal has been rejected on this matter (first i knew of this change of ruling). Firstly, where do i stand with appealing these and going forwards? One of the main reasons we moved in here was because it had the benefit of space to park two vehicles. There is no road parking around here that isn't charged so thats not really an option. I don't want to keep getting these PCNs. i know that CPM have never taken someone to court but i do not want to end up in a situation where they take us to court to make an example seeing as we will probably have a substantial amount of these by the time our lease is up! As expected, the appeal responses from them are pathetic, don't actually address the points i'm making and are going against their own signage and terms but i'm now starting to use a substantial amount of time dealing with these and whilst i'm taking great pleasure in wasting their time and money, id rather not have to!
  2. Good morning. Unfortunately, on 03/10/2015 i was issued a Parking Charge Notice by Parking Control Management (UK) Limited for the sum of £60.00 whilst I was parked on a private car park. I had appealed on the grounds that the signs had been vandalised which of course was rejected by PCM and decided to follow it through with another appeal to The Independent Appeals Service and also this was dismissed. I have left it whilst seeking advice but PCM have now referred it over to Debt Recovery Plus Limited who are chasing me for the amount of £160.00 I'm not the best when it comes to this sort of stuff, and hope someone would be able to advise me further about the whole situation and where I stand. I have linked in an album as there are too many images to display on here of my PCN, Evidence and also the appeal that i submitted to TheIAS which can be viewed here: http://imgur.com/a/Eld1V Any help would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to pay these people a penny as they do not deserve it.
  3. Good afternoon First of all I thank everyone for any advice you may be able to offer. On the 24th March 2016 at 19:14 I was parked at the rear of some shops on Slough High Street. I visited a Supermarket (one of those shops) and was in there no longer than 20min. On my return I discovered a parking ticket from Parking and Property Management Ltd with the issue reason 'Not displaying a valid permit'. It was dark so I obviously didn't see the sign post which outlined the conditions of parking there. The following day I went away for work and totally forgot about the ticket. Almost 3 months later I have recieved a 'LETTER BEFORE CLAIM' from Gladstones Solicitors. This letter is dated 7th June, was sent 2nd class and I recieved it a week later?? Having done extensive Googling online I read there should have been a NTK before this? I cannot recall having received one of these. I will be trawling through all my post again just to make sure. They are asking for a payment of £150 or they will take legal action? The easy option would be to pay the fine, however the bay I had parked in was for a Carpet Shop, which was way past closing time at the time I got the ticket! Where do I stand with contesting the ticket? Looking forward to the advice and I appreciate it!
  4. Hi to all. I am going to try and keep this very simple and brief. I was sent a package/gift by my relative. So it was not a online purchase or any of that sort The item was delivered to my apartment complex via Royal Mail signed for service and was received by the concierge who signed for the item and made a log of my parcel and put in a delivery note via my letter box. However when I went to collect my parcel it had disappeared from a secure parcel room. I am not here blaming the concierge stealing the package all I am saying it just disappeared. I spoke to the building management and put in a formal complaint. I contacted the police also who could not do much at this point as no proof of who took the parcel. I wrote endless letters of complaint to the building management company of my apartment complex. Who ignored my complaint s and never responded. I then did a subject access request for the office log sheets containing the acceptance and delivery of my parcel even then they ignored and after my letter to management stating I will make a complaint to the ICO they sent me the documents. I then wrote to the CEO of the company and yet received no response. I had no choice other than to seek financial claim of my missing item via the small claims court. £ under 5000 claim. So The Small Claims court acknowledges my claim and gave until 1st of October for the defender the building management company to acknowledge and put in a defence to my claim. I rang the small courts/money claim centre on the 2nd of October who said they have received no information from the defendant however they are 5 days behind. i had to wait until 7th to find out if they had received any correspondence. I ring up on the 7th and yes they have not received any information. I sent in via email a request for judgment by default on 7th October, received the confirmation email, but again it takes 5 days for it to go through. The judgment by default was sent as the courts had not received any information from the defendant at this point of time. On the 8th of October I received an email from the defendants solicitor stating that there is no contractual relationship between me and the building management, and my particulars of claim are not clear, (I have been extremely clearly in my claim form) and that the claim is misconstrued and vicarious and that the concierge company is separated and are hired separately and in so many words saying it’s not them and trying to shift blame, followed by giving me 2 options, A)discontinue the claim B) agree to an an extension for the defence to allow them a extra 1 month to put in a defence C) And if I do not agree to a or B the building management company would file for a summary judgment strike out as the claim is vicarious. And giving me a 23 hour notice to respond via email only and to seek legal advice. Note I received the email on the 8th at 9pm and was given less than 24 hours to respond via email only by 3pm on the 9th of October. And the defendant will claim between £2500-£3000 In court costs and legal charges etc In a panic and surprise that having not any response up to date and all of a sudden a letter from a solicitor o sort legal advice and was told by my legal team to continue with the judgment by default. On the 14th of October I rang the court and was told the defendant on the 6th of October put in an acknowledgment of service but have until the 15th to put in the defence. So the judgment by default is not valid. But can put in another judgment by default if they don’t receive a defence. That’s the basic of what is going on. Now my question is can the defence claim legal costs via small claims? What advice and help would you suggest. What steps could you suggest I take as I am getting stressed out. Thank you and all response will be appreciated.
  5. Hi, I entered the Damside Street Car Park in Lancaster on 09/09 2018 at 11:57:47 with a 5 years old daughter in distress. While my partner took care of her I had to go around to find a place where to change money because I didn't have enough loose change to pay for a parking ticket at the ticket machine. Therefore I bought a parking ticket valid for 1 hour at 12:10 (just over two minutes after the 10 minute grace period finished). I left the car park at 12:13:02. In total, I stayed there for less than 16 minutes but purchased a ticket allowing me to stay for 1 hour (plus the 10 minutes grace period). A few days later I received a Parking Charge for £125. I tried to appeal with the HX Car Management and with the Independent Appeal Service but with no success. A few days ago, I received a Letter Before Claim from Gladstones solicitors threatening with a legal action if I don't pay £160. I'm not sure what to do. Shall I pay or shall I go to the court? Do I have any chance in the court with no legal experience? Thank you for your help Miroslav
  6. Hi all, I have recently moved to the Winterthur Way development in Basingstoke. I rent a property which includes a parking space. It wasn't until I moved into the flat that I was given a parking permit and told to use it when parking in my allocated space (This was something that was not mentioned in my tenancy agreement!). After moving in I received 2 x £60 parking charge notices for using visitors spaces (Returning within a 48 hour period) to drop off my furniture. I used the visitors space as I had to use a different car of a suitable size to drop the furniture off. Also my space isn't near my flat its further up the road. I kind of understood as I could have possibly been using a space that someone else could have been using, all be it for a very short period of time. After paying these two charges from PPM I thought it was over ! Two weeks later as a result of having to pay £120 to PPM straight after moving in I had to do overtime at a weekend so I was able to pay next months rent. The overtime meant staying away with work from the 8/07/2017 and returned on the 11/07/2017. When I returned on the evening of the 11th I have been met with 2x PCN from PPM on my windscreen whilst I was parked in my own space. Straight away as I approached the car I have seen my permit was not stuck to the top of my windscreen where it was before I left. Both PCN's are for 'Not displaying a valid permit' one for 09/07/2017 & 10/07/2017. I thought this surely wont be an issue I will just send them evidence of where the permit had fallen (A video from my phone was sent) also a picture of my valid permit. After all it is my space and unlike the visitors spaces I could not have inconvenienced anyone as it is 'MY SPACE'. They should just accept that and cancel the charges. To my surprise I have an email from PPM stating my appeal has been rejected ! PPM is now giving me the option to appeal to the IAS but from my understanding I don't stand a chance appealing to them either? I don't really have the cash to pay the 2 x £60 at a reduced rate. Let alone £200 if the appeal to the IAS fails. However I really do feel they can't do this. Any help is greatly appreciated. I understand I probably haven't included all the information you guys need to help but I am also not sure where to start. I have included the response from PPM in a ZIP file with my name and REG edited out. Just let me know what you need and I will post it up ! Regards, tissot docs1.pdf
  7. Hi, new to the forum, thanks in advance. The PCN came though the post, ANPR capture, no ticket. Date of infringement 08/12/2018. NTK was issued on 12/12/2019 for £60. I've been working away, so effectively ignored it. I received a Keeper Liability Notice on 16/01/2019 but I was still away and have just returned and opened it (28/01/2019). Schedule 4 Protections of freedoms Act is mentioned. I have made no contact with them. The parking company is HX Carpark Management Ltd The car park address is Vulcans Lane Car Park, Vulcans Lane, Workington, Cumbria CA14 2BP They operate under the Independent Appeals Service. The charge is for failing to purchase a ticket within 10 minutes of arriving at the car park. I was working at the theatre near by and went to get change from the theatre shop. It took longer than 10 minutes. I'm trying to find the payment ticket. I think my employer has it. I'm chasing him now. Any advice on the best course of action would be appreciated. Today 28/01/19 is the deadline for the £100 payment, according to their rules. Thanks.
  8. I’m looking someone who can help relating to Reeds Rains, a property management company based in Halifax, yorkshire that I used up until October last year and who now appear to have sent me a claims letter demanding £633.90 I realise this is a relatively small sum but i'd like to see if i have any options and not panic and just pay. I left because when i signed with them the contract stated 4 inspections a year, i asked them not to do 4 inspections per year, 1 a year was enough as they're my existing tenants, i've had them a while they'd been great and i trusted them to look after my house. Roll forward 2 years i find out from my tenant that she'd been having to take time off work for 4 inspections every year and was being harassed by reed rains if she didn't reply when they were wanting to arrange them. She doesn't earn a huge amount so taking time off work was difficult and she worked at a hospital so having to sort out cover on shifts. Understandably she was frustrated and got in touch with me They also issued my tenant with a new AST and charged them a fee (which i hadn't realised) so on the 2nd year of being with them, i told reed rains i'd pay the fee for my tenant, count many many emails later from me to them to several people telling them over and over again that i was paying it, they were still harassing my tenants to pay the fee so again, my tenants is left frustrated and upset Responding to their emails and trying clear up their confusion was taking up so much time (and becoming stressful and frustrating for me too), I gave reeds rains 3 months notice (by email and i got a response back from them) and i thought that was that A week ago i found a brown envelope through my letterbox, i was a county claims letter All it says is i owe them £633.90 for a 'withdrawal fee' which i know nothing about, i can't find the contract i signed as remember scanning it and emailing it back to them but i can't find the hard copy Prior to this i don't think i've had any communication (I did have block their emails as kept sending me marketing information (gdpr?) Has anyone been through anything like this or offer any advise at all?
  9. nhs contracts? Hi all, i am now working in the nhs as part of the theatre department and in doing so signed the usual contract agreeing to working on calls, late shifts and weekends etc, the problem is that some staff are not taking part in this arrangement because of various reasons ( my cats scared of the dark or little johnny wets the bed) sanctioned by the managers and therefore the remaining staff are having to work extra shifts to compensate. My question is, are we all being treated equally and do we have any basis for taking action against the management. Any help would be great. Cheers.
  10. My son visits a local car park to pick up a manager of a local business adjacent to the car park, takes her to Bookers Cash & Carry and then brings her back to the same car park with the few items she has purchased for the business. The car park backs on to the rear entrance of her business and there is an HX Car Parking notice there which says it is OK to stay for up to 10 mins without a requirement to pay for a ticket. After one of these occasions he received a parking charge notice from HX accompanied by a photo of his car entering the car park on his first vist and another of his car leaving the car park on his second visit, total duration 79 minutes. He was only there for a few mins on the first visit and the same on the second which is within the rules stated. The charge was £120 or pay now for £60. We thought this was a simple ANPR technical error and wrote to HX stating this and advised them to re-examine their photos and find the two missing pictures of him leaving and returning which would be the solution to the issue - no response except for another letter stating that the charge had gone up to £125 (not the £120 stated?). We wrote again with the same explanation with no response except for a further letter from their solicitors (Gladstones) giving one last chance to pay the full charge. Upon research I find that HX, Gladstones and their arbitration service are all part of the same group and operating a cash generating machine. We ignored that letter and have now received a county court claim form inviting him to give a response before being taken to court. Any advice appreciated on how to proceed with this. Do I need to get him a solicitor and if so can I counter-claim for the expense? Is there any way of derailing this procedure before it reaches court?
  11. Having received a parking invoice for parking on private land from UK Parking Management LTD, I failed to respond or appeal. As I am unlucky enough to be subject to another private parking charge , I had confused the two and thought I had appealed but it seems I did not..... ..I have now had a letter from Debt Recovery Plus asking for £160. I called them upon receipt and asked for copies of the original invoice and some other information (such as the address of the parking company - so I could write to them directly). All of my requests were (quite rudely) refused and I have now received a letter from them saying as it's at the debt recovery stage they are unable to consider any appeals. Where do I stand? (please)
  12. Hi, I've read through a lot of posts, but can't find one that directly deals with my issue. Please find attached the notice & pics sent to me. I live in Scotland, so can't get any pics of any signage before the 14 days. I don't remember there being any notices except for the usual pay and display notices, The problem with the parking bay was that if I had moved forward I would have had the front of the car over and I thought this would have made it more awkward for the cars next to me. 1 Date of the infringement 07/08/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 13/08/2018 3 Date received 16/08/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? {y/n?] post up your appeal] Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up No 7 Who is the parking company? Northwest Parking Management Ltd 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] Central Car Park, Peter Street. Carlisle (stated on letter - I cannot confirm as I am not local to the area) For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. BPA I'd really appreciate it for someone to take the time to read and offer some advice. PNCharge.pdf
  13. I own an apartment which I used to live in around 5 years ago before I moved into a house with my girlfriend, since then it has been let out and I have been paying all of the annual maintenance fees. I gave them my new correspondence address and they have been sending letters for the annual maintenance fees since then. In January 2012 the current management company took over from the previous management company. In May 2012 they applied a £114 late payment fee to my account. I disputed this, didn’t pay the fee and asked them to waive it. They did not respond and they have not chased me for this £114 since then. As the years went by I continued paying the annual maintenance to the present day, I am up to date with this and they have not sent me any letters until I received a letter dated 27 September 2016 where they state that I owe them £978.04 and they will shortly be commencing legal proceedings. I emailed them asking for an explanation and they have emailed over a sheet which explains how they have come to the £978.04: Extracts from their document: 28 May 12 – late payment fee £114 01 Jul 15 – general maintenance reserves including section 20 works £208.38 - paid 10/10/16 01 Jul 15 – insurance excess reserve £67.66 - paid 10/10/16 18 Feb 16 – legal fees re section 146 procedure £450 27 Sep 16 – administration fee £138 Total: £978.04 of which £702 is fees/charges I paid the one-off ‘general maintenance reserve’ and the ‘insurance excess reserve’ today as these seem to be acceptable charges relating to running the building. However, it seems they have added fees/charges/fines to the ‘reserves’ costs which they believe I have deliberately not paid but in reality I didn’t even know about the charges as they did not send me any letters about them. So I supposedly now owe them £114 late payment fee from 2012, £450 section 146 charge from Feb 2016 and £138 admin fee from Sep 2016. Total of £702 in charges which seems extortionate. I must stress they have not been sending me letters in regards to any of these ‘charges/administrative fees’ or the ‘reserves’ charges from 2015. I am totally up to date with all of my management fees and I would have paid the ‘reserves’ from 2015 if they had sent me a letter. I have told them that they have not sent me letters and they said they have. I have checked the address they sent them to and it is correct. I cannot believe they are threatening me with legal action – had I known about the 2015 ‘reserves’ charges I would have paid them just like I always pay my annual maintenance charge, and now they have added so many costs. How can I stop them taking this to court?
  14. Ok, so this is a bit of a long story so I'll try and keep it as short as possible, I'm no legal expert at all. I moved into my new property August 2017, I moved from a previous address which everyone involved knew about. Now where I live is Freehold, but I have a management company who cut the grass etc in the local park, which I have to pay for yearly......I had not received an invoice at all, so I just presumed I would get one yearly one. Now I was in the area of my previous property and it turns out the management company have been invoicing my previous address to demand payment, but obviously as they demand payment every 6 months, it has now created arrears and they have now appointed solicitors to collect payment . I have contacted solicitors and explained everything, they're not interested, just demand money! They told me to speak to my solicitors who assisted with the purchase of the property as they should have informed the maintenance company of change of address. I have contacted them, which they sent me the letter which was sent to the management company, I then forwarded this to the solicitors and they have said this isn't good enough and are going to pursue payment. which I should pay £120 a year to the management company now with arrears and solicitors fees they want nearly £550. They have said I have 7 days to pay the full amount or they will proceed with an Section 121 notice which will add significant charges. My point is, surely it is an administration error on the part of the management company or the solicitors who assisted with the purchase of the house. I was never told anywhere I have to contact the management company to change my address!? All of the solicitors involved knew it was my main residence. What can I do going forward?? As debt collecting solicitors just don't listen and all they do is demand payment. Management company won't talk to me and just say "its in solicitors hands now" Any advice would be great, I'm speaking to my solicitor tomorrow to see where I stand on this, as out of principle I don't think this is my fault at all!
  15. Ive received a letter before action from Gladstones re an alleged parking violation on private land there aren't any signs at the entrance barrier stating the land is private and subject to a fine for illegal parking. Although there are some within the car park, these are placed in such a way that tree branches etc obscure them. Is the alleged violation enforceable if there weren't any noticed placed at the barrier entrance to the car park? Thank you.
  16. Frankly I feel that it's probably a bot.

  17. Hello Everyone. I visited a friend on 29/04/17 in the early evening. Today, 20/05/17 I received a letter from CPM UK Car Park Management that a PCN was issued on 16/05/17 in relation to my visit on 29/04/17. An operative did not attend to see the apparent parking, a tennant at the flats takes photos of cars, sends them to CPM who then issue PCN's The area is split into two parking areas, one on the left, one on the right, with main entry driveway down the middle. I have attached 11 photos for you to look at. The block of flats is owned by a social housing association that has its head office in Newbury, West Berkshire. As you can see from the photos there is : 1 - no mention of permits being needed on any of the signs, 2 - only a couple of the bays have numbers which I think relates to flat number 3 - there are no designated visitor parking bays 4 - even though its private land, surely visitors are allowed to drive to the site and park up to visit a tennant. CPM001 - Location of Parking sign nearest to where my car was parked CPM002 - Close up picture of the sign CPM003 - The bay my car was parked in when receiving the PCN CPM004 - A parking bay with a designated flat number CPM005 - Majority of the bays do not have designated flat numbers, or visitor parking signs CPM006 - Sign on entry stating it is private parking CPM007 - Parking sign in right hand side car park CPM008 - Cars parked in bays with no designated flat numbers, or visitor parking CPM009 - Vehicles park on the main entry road / pavement CPM010 - Vehicles park on the main entry road / pavement CPM011 - Vehicles park on the main entry road / pavement I read that as its private land, then the PCN is actually an invoice (contract law), and that by appealing you are agreeing that the invoice is valid. I have also emailed DVLA today to see if CPM are legally allowed to get driver vehicle details from DVLA. But Im bothered by the fact that the "Offence" took place on 29/04, The offence wasnt recorded at CPM for 17 days, and then it took fours days for the letter to arrive. I wanted to know if there is a nice letter to send, which doesnt accept liability, but tells CPM they're talking rubbish and Im not paying. Sorry trying to upload photos, whats the spec needed ? Thanks Phillip
  18. Hello Caggers I surely can't be alone in being in this position, but I can't find any other threads on the subject. I was rear-ended by a third party (very little damage to my vehicle, but her's was a real mess), and I foolishly followed Admiral's advice in using their recommended Claims Management Company (Albany Assistance - I use the term advisedly!). Long story short, they took five working days (spanning a weekend) to do a whole load of unnecessary investigation, and gave me a credit hire vehicle for the duration (nine days total). Given that they were holding my car hostage, this was all outside my control. However, the third party's insurers are refusing to pay up for the excessive car hire charges, so Albany (through one of their partner companies) have issued a county court claim against the third party herself, but as I have incurred the charges, I have ended up as the claimant. Does anyone have any experience of this type of case, and can give me any advice as to what line to take in court (Monday 12th). Maybe transcripts of any case you might have been involved with or know of??? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

  20. This 3rd party mobile provider contacted me (Unsolicited) around Feb 2017 telling me that my small business contract with o2 was coming to an end. As an O2 "Partner" they had all my information and could provide me with a great deal. I stupidly signed a 3year contract with a "Deal Incentive" whereby they would pay a sum to me to reduce my line rental to £25 a month, I got 1 payment in April then nothing until in Jan 2018 I sent them a letter of contract cancellation due to "Material Breach of Contract". My bill rose from £35 to £92 for 3gb of data and no phone !! Despite several letters and calls to o2 to cancel this contract I am still waiting. Beware of this company please, I will keep you updated !!
  21. Hi, With ref to : https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?483974-ADVICE-required-Defendant-insurer-refusing-to-pay-for-credit-hire-vehicle I was just reading up on hire company car issues and have found myself in a similar situation described earlier this year in the forum. I had a car accident a few weeks ago and I was not at fault and my insurance company have referred me on to the solicitors and they offered to repair my car and give me a hire car to use, which I accepted as I believed this was something I was entitled to since I was not at fault. I am now being asked to provide all my bank details and find this very bizarre. I have called the solicitors and they say that they plan to get all costs covered by the other person's car insurance, which brings me back to why am I providing my bank details?? I came across this forum and began reading your posts on the forum to get advice and see if other people have been in this situation. May I ask what happened with your situation? Did the solicitors manage to claim back costs from the other insurance company? Did you encounter any other further problems/costs? and were you happy to pass on your bank statements? I have never dealt with an insurance claim before and thought this was going to be a simple to ensure my car is repaired, but have realised there is a lot more to this. I read in the forum that you did pass on you bank details to the solicitors. Did you find this was a safe thing to do or did they make you pay for anything? Is this all a normal process??? Many Thanks.
  22. Hi All Have been paying a small amount to Citroen for a debt from 2007 that now does not appear on my credit file current balance is £2500. Citroen have now sent me a letter saying they have sold the debt to a debt collection company and have closed the account. Interestingly they say i should continue to make payments and should hear from the new debt management company reference payment to them instead. (still waiting after 5 days for letter from debt company) I have still got this debt listed against an address i moved out of 2 years ago and have not been on the electoral role at a rental for the past 2 years. I have now moved in with girlfriend and will eventually end up on the council tax here but address is over 50 miles away. Due to these changes i'm not sure if i should just stop paying Citroen and wait to see if the debt company finds me; any advise would be helpful thanks.

Same experience as above. Where does he (the car owner) stand? It is annoying that someone takes the money for your ticket physically but then you get told you haven't paid. I also have the ticket as evidence. Again, parking attendant said to put on dashboard but no reference to terms and conditions. Interestingly I parked around 7:30am. It was dark so even if the signs were up at the time, they weren't illuminated so would that add weight to the argument? Do I reply or just wait?
  24. Hi all, I been ignoring few letters (stupidly I searched on googles about ignoring private car park parking charge and believed it ) for a parking charge issued on 03/05/17 at location West Gate Plaza West Bromwich, Moor Street, B70 7AD by Parking and Property Management LTD and recently I received Letter before Claim from Gladstones stating I own a debt of £160. First corresponding letter was from Parking and Property Management LTD dated on 07/06/17 and it was already a 'reminder notice letter', however i was not aware and the person who was driving the car at that time are not aware he was charged before this letter was received. The 'so call edvidences images' first picture was taken at 09:02pm and second picture was at 10:14pm, it also stated the they issued the ticket at 10:11pm. However the second picture show the car was turned on with lights on and the driver told me he had a kid in the car at that time and there were some accident, thats why he exceeded the 1 hour maxium time period. The signage for the car park is next to the shop signage above the car and one more signage is nextdoor shop also next to the shop signage on the right hand side. And it was at night time, it wasn't clear enough to read. 2nd letter was from Gladstones as Final reminder letter dated on 17/07/17, asking for £160, stating if I dont pay they are instructed to issue legal proceeding against me in the county court. And the lastest 3rd letter from Gladstones as Letter before Claim with a deadline of 14 days to respond of pay and the letter was dated on 31/07/17, but I was on holiday so I missed their dealine anyway. Stating they act on behalf the claimant and have now been instructed to commence legal action against me to recover the debts i own. But should I response to them now or no? As I feel it might end up bad if I keep ignoring them and I got confused with all those technical wording. I have not contact any of them or reply them so far. Kindly request helps! Thank you. P.S i can't seem to upload any images?
