    • Bank the cheque.  No doubt it will bounce - but you never know. When it bounces - that is when you are meant to access their website link and enter your personal details - but of course - DON'T.
    • Wayne Ting, chief executive of e-scooter firm Lime, says there's room for improvement. View the full article
    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Posting this with thanks to madpriest

 

I don't know whether anyone else has posted this - I couldn't see it - This information supercedes all information regarding county courtlink3.gif Actions etc.

 

(1) You can no longer take your completed N1 to the local county court.

 

You either have to do it online as MCOL or you have to send your N1 in to a central processing office. Note well that MCOL only allows around 1500 characters so if you have a long Particulars of Claim (POClink3.gif) then you will need to send it in. (I personally think this is a better idea as a completed blue N1 naming the bank as a 'defendent; is a thing of great beauty !!)

 

(2) Your N1 should not state a county court in the top right hand corner but it should contain "CC MCC NORTHAMPTON". All Money claims are now nominally issues from Northampton

 

(3) On the new N1 there are the words "You must indicate preferred court for hearings here" ---- At this point insert the name of your local county court. What happens is that the case gets formally 'transferred' from Northampton to your local county court.

 

(4) You can get the most up to date N1 here

http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.u...s/n001-eng.pdf

 

(6) Payment - You either have to send a cheque for the fees, or a postal order. If you want to pay by card, you need to send a covering letter, in LARGE TYPE, asking them to contact you and give them a phone number. (This if course is the governments very well thought out plan !)

 

(7) Allocation. I haven't got here yet. My understanding is that you get a communication from the County Court Money Claims Centre telling you about allocation and where you can get the form. They no longer send the allocation questionnaire to you.

 

(8) Addresses as follows:

 

(8.1) ENGLAND

County Court Money Claims Centre

POBOX 527

Salford M5 0BY

 

(8.2) WALES

POBox 552

SALFORD M5 0EG

 

(8.3) SCOTLAND

(Totally foreign country - I have no idea)

 

PHONE for both 0300 123 1372

 

(9) Now there is an e-filing email ccmcce-filing@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk

but this is not to be used for filing money claims. I've got no idea what its for but it could be for filing your allocation questionnaires.

 

(10) Upon allocation, the case is then 'transferred' to your local court.

 

Good Luck everybody - I hope this has been helpful

This is how it has worked for a good few months now (although previously it was rolled out and not officially started), apart from 'starting' the claim (which many did on MCOL anyway) it works as normal, as soon as its allocated you can send/hand in docs to your local (assuming thats where its allocated to) court.

My brother in law is a claimant in a case where he sent the claim to salford. After defence was received he was sent an aq from salford and he returned it to them. The case has now been allocated to his local court. He isn't represented but still received an aq so not sure if point 7 is correct.

And the very best of luck to those who are eligible to claim fee remission on any court fees because the documentation has to be originals (including bank statements) and I could write a book on the errors they (CCMCC & local courts) have done with my various claims which includes losing financial information!

 

I don't wish to be the bearer of bad news but the plans by the government to centralise everything has experienced more than teething problems.

 

If anyone would like assistance on this area I am happy to provide information via this thread.
