I've already done the following. pop up on the MCOL website detailed on the claim form. . register as an individual note the long gateway number given then log in . select respond to a claim and select the start AOS box. . then using the details required from the claimform . defend all leave jurisdiction unticked. click thru to the end confirm and exit MCOL. . get a CPR 3114 request running to the solicitors type your name ONLY no need to sign anything. (will be posted to them on monday) Other details: Name of the Claimant ? - Euro parking services limited claimants Solicitors: Gladstone Solicitors Limited Date of issue – 9th Nov 2018 What is the claim for – (to note there is no registration on the letter either) The driver of the vehicle registration (the 'Vehicle') incurred the parking charge(s) on 26/08/2017 for breaching the terms of parking on the land at Lidl & travelodge The Defendant was driving the Vehicle and/or is the Keeper of the Vehicle. AND THE CLAIMANT CLAIMS £160 for Parking Charges / Damages and indemnity costs if applicable, together with interest of £14.25 pursuant to S69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at 8% pa, continuing to Judgement at £0.04 per day.

Euro parking services Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? - Not sure what this is? Other things to note: - There is no pay and display at the car park. There is signage which states customer have "x" amount of time to park as a customer. (Going to check the time on the signage and take photo's) - I have receipt of the driver's purchase at the store - Dated 26/08/2017 with a time of 13:59 - The two photo's in the notice to keeper letter both showing the vehicle moving dated 26/08/2017 and time stamped 14:14 - I no longer own the vehicle - I tried contacting lidl but they basically told me to take it up with euro parking services. What's the best line of defence to take? -Check with the council whether they even have the planning permission? -Check the so called "contract" on the signage and use the receipt to counter the "breach"? -Provide the evidence that car was not parked as per the photos? Thanks in advance
  2. The reason I ask is that firstly I did not expect to have to deal with a Collection firm arriving at my business premises on a Bank Holiday Weekend. Secondly, they had arrived to remove my haulage truck which I rely on for business and thirdly, when I called the police they had no effect and the two men from NCS dictated the entirety of the proceedings that followed and the police were helpless. I concede that I owed money to the finance company on the truck and as a result they instructed NCS, but I had no idea that a Collection firm could simply remove my property and even less idea that they could dictate proceedings so swiftly and with such power over the local police under a repossession order. Is there no patience anymore?
  3. Newcastle Building Society has pulled its three-year fixed rate 95 per cent LTV mortgage having used up the tranche of funds allocated for the product. No further bookings are being accepted for the 6.19 per cent fixed rate from today but the society says existing bookings will be honoured until the close of business on 17 April. The society says there are no other changes to products in its portfolio. Trinity Financial product and communications manager Aaron Strutt says: “It is a shame that Newcastle has elected to pull this popular product. Unfortunately, there are not that many alternative products available to borrowers.” Link: http://www.mortgagestrategy.co.uk/latest-news/newcastle-building-society-withdraws-95-mortgage/1069359.article

  5. So yesterday i took the metro in Newcastle to get to the mainline station to get a connection to edinburgh. However i only had notes in wallet and although with a full intention of buying a ticket i couldnt as the metro only has coin operated ticket machines. i was also travelling at 9.15 in the morning thereofre no shops were open where i could have got change from. subsequently while travelling ont he metro i was asked to show a ticket, obviously i couldnt and was given a £20 penalty notice. this also caused me to miss my connection and fork out £40 for new tickets even though we had set off with loads of time to spare and i got the feeling the attendant was being particularly slow on purpose causing me to miss my train. what are my chance of appeal against the fine and getting any sort of compensation? many thanks
