    • You should read our customer services guide and record all your calls. Secondly, if you have a payment card configured in their system then you should delete it. Keep an eye on your account and also keep an eye on your bank account. If a payment goes through to your bank account then you should challenge immediately – and it would probably be a good idea to phone your bank anyway and to put them on notice that there is a possible fraud. Frankly it would be a good idea to get a new card with a new number from your bank. Please let us know if anything actually happens and if you have any problem dealing with these people
    • if anyone picks this up. The appointed Telephone called at 3.25pm on the due date. Connected  both parties together, then spent another hour trying to connect with the Court/Judge to no avail.   Waiting for another date to be set from the county court.   Thanks   stephenXL
    • oh and expanding on one of the core points:   Corbyn said he regrets it took ‘longer to deliver that change than it should,’ but that… ‘the scale of the problem was also dramatically overstated’. - More Corbyn Johnsonite BS   and the point needs making that despite Corbyn claiming it was 'dramatically' less of a problem than those affected and an independent investigation claimed .. he still; at the very least; failed to address that alleged (by him) 'dramatically' lessor problem   Of course, a more accurate although still generous statement would seem to be that Corbyn took ‘longer to fail to deliver that change' .. although IMO - Corbyn rapidly made it worse and actually empowered certain types of racism would perhaps be MOST accurate     Throw them all out NOW Starmer - it will be more damaging if you don't.
    • Well they have 28 days from the date of deemed service. That means, I think that you have to allow two business days from the date of issue of the claim and then add 28 days. So if you issued on the 27 – let's say 28 October. Service would have occurred – let's say 30 October, to be on the safe side. Count 28 days from then. You should be able to enter judgement today – or maybe tomorrow – although it seems a little bit later than it should be. Keep on checking What time of the day on the 27th did you issue it?
    • Hi, just received this sms out of the blue from CDER Group. No idea what it is for and no idea what to do. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated:   "DO NOT IGNORE THIS MESSAGE. An Enforcement Agent may be allocated to your account and your goods may be removed. You can pay now using this link: https://customer.cdergroup.co.uk/portal/paylink/******** or contact CDER Gruop on 0330 107 0023, Ref ******** Security code. If anyone in your home has symptoms of COVID-19, is self-isolating or has been advised to shield, please contact us on 03301070023 before we visit you at home"   As I said, it came out of the blue. I don't think it is a spam message looking on forums, I don't want to call them as they will ask for phone number and address, so how can I find out what debt I owe?   Many thanks

Hi everybody:) Received a parking ticket at Aintree hospitals a few months ago

- partner recieved notification as he is the registered keeper.

 

Sent a letter to say that he wasn't the driver as he was in work and they sent a letter back to say if he could name the driver they would transfer liability.

 

Sent another letter to say it could have been a number of people who were driving but defo not him!!

 

Received a letter off Trethowans who said the car had a disabled badge displayed in the hopes that this would reveal the actual driver but we just ignored that letter.

 

Received court papers today:!:

POC:- UNPAID BREACH OF PARKING REG. NOTICE

DETAILS- date, ticket number and amount

Then goes on to say about claiming interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984.

 

What do we do

- partner will go mad cos he already has a CCJ from HFC?

Obviously we want to defend this as it wasn't him driving so why should he get penalised??

 

Do we have to fill in the Acknowledgment of service and the defence and counterclaim form?

Please please help as I have to tell my partner when he comes home from work:jaw: and if I have some sort of answers for him it would make it more bearable!!

THANKYOU IN ANTICIPATION!!

I should get over to PePiPoo and flag up this matter there. People on there have experience of previous cases from these solicitors and this hospital.

Yes fill in the acknowledgement of service, and tick the box that says you wish to defend the whole of the claim. This will give you 28 days to submit a full defence, which will obviously be that your partner can prove he was elsewhere at the material time, and couldn't therefore have entered into any contract relating to parking at Aintree.

 

He can only get a CCJ if they a) take the claim all the way to a hearing (unlikely); b) win the case (extremely unlikely); and c) he doesn't pay the judgment within 21 days.

 

There's more chance of Shergar winning next year's Grand National ridden by Lord Lucan.

Aintree tried Court some time ago and lost as the judge said it was a penalty, and private tickets cannot issue penaties

If memory serves papers came to light from the Aintree Hospitals NHS Trust that disclosed that the scheme was intended to penalise drivers.

Either Trethowans are just in it for the cash and not worried about their reputation after the last Aintree cases, or Aintree are putting pressure on them to try again! Madness even if they win its costing them more then they could recover!

Ok- there havin none of it!!! Received allocation questionnaire today! They've also changed to our local court!! Seems pretty much straight forward - just stuck on what to put for G-"other information" Also where it says about witness shall I put in that his boss will sign a statement to say he was in work and driving his van so it couldn't be him driving? Pooping myself now ;-(!!!

In all likelihood nobody's even read it :-)

 

I'd just repeat what you've already said under part G. Save any proof for your full defence later (if it gets that far).

Finally received a letter from court to say they are recommending a mediation service and the claimant wishes to attempt mediation- does he have to go for this- I don't see the point in it as they know he wasn't driving but have still pressed ahead with court proceedings- are they really going to listen now?

Trethowans tried it on with a keeper last week in Liverpool and were sent packing. Tried asking the judge to order the defendant to say who was driving. Judge said he had no authority to do so. Basically if your partner says he wasn't driving and can prove it then its case over!

They also send local agents who dont seem to know too much about what is going on.

Hi Notts_Phil- he's got the hearing date in Feb should it not be resolved by mediation- many people have helped already but I've a feeling I'm going to need a lot more!!

 

Esmerobbo and DBC- just read the post on pepipoo- feel slightly more relieved now!!

 

Just need to start getting everything together- Liverpool CC will be sick of us- 2 tickets from Trethowans!!!

Has anybody got any ideas on what to write in defence? Got some great stuff off Al27 about penalties etc but wanted something relating to them suing the RK and not the driver.

 

Who was it they lost in court with- was it daveyweir?

 

Thanks guys:wink:

Davey Weir won on the penalties factor, but there has been a big one since then.

 

NHS Aintree Foundation Trust v Perera

Case no. 1UD12840

 

£1622.84 costs sought from 25 tickets.

 

Mostly double yellow line parking incidences.

 

• Judge agreed that each amount was a penalty not a pre-estimate of damages

• Agreed that the Circuit Judge's findings in Thurlow v OB were persuasive

• Nobody was obstructed, no spaces were taken and a permit was on display

• Dismissed the notion that parking management was the purpose of the private ticketing regime

 

If you can prove your OH was at work it would be game over.

Does anybody know of any cases where they have sued the Rk instead of the driver that I could write in the defence? Have received their witness statement- ha haha is all I can say- will give more details after hearing!!:madgrin:

They cant, their claim is for breach of an alleged contract which the DRIVER allegedly read on signs and allegedly agreed too by parking. The RK was not party to any contract they can not be held responsible for it.

 

Have you read the freedoms bill? The PPC brigade are asking for RK liability for parking charges, now if they are asking for RK liability then they accept that it does not exist at the moment.

 

PS: Sent you a PM

Thanks esmerobbo- (replied to pm:wink:) They are saying it's not for breach of contract it's for parking in a forbidden bay!! They just contradict themselves over and over again!!

So they're going down the trespass road? The same applies. If the RK wasn't driving and wasn't there then they didn't trespass!! Its even more clear cut than the contract one!
