I received a letter from "The Miah Solicitors" debt recovery team about their client UKCPS.

 

The details are:

 

I parked out of a marked bay in a when visiting a friend who lives in a zone controlled by UKCPS, they put a ticket which I picked up on the windscreen. I parked in early 2015.

 

The charge is £100, £25 UKCPS administration fee, and £150 legal costs.

 

They also state in the letter "The supreme court ruled on 4th November 2015 that charges for parking on private land are enforceable,

you should therefore arrange to make payment..."

 

I have the following to say in my defence, which although waffley might contain something useful.

 

I am unemployed. I was visiting a friend.

There was no-where else to park, he directed me where to leave my car, which was on the "double yellow" lines,

and agreed to park there as he said everyone ignores their tickets.

 

 

I was not blocking anyone from moving through the car park, getting in our out of their space,

or taking up a residents space so it was actually the least obstructive place to park.

 

 

Outside the residents compound the nearest parking was over a mile away,

so where do they expect visitors to go?

 

 

My friend didn't have any visitor tickets, and I'm not sure if they provide them.

 

I have ignored all letters up to this point and am considering talking to a solicitor about it.

 

 

I have a few days to make contact before they send more threatening letters about me visiting a friend who is surrounded by their enforcers.

 

Do you have any advice?

Well you could try and airlift some food and water to him if he can't get out... madgrin.gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'll pre-empt your response by guessing that you haven't kept the NTD or NTK, and can't tell us the exact dates of these... ( You can prove me wrong and post up redacted copies!)

 

 

This is just another debt collector letter, but UKCPS do issue small amounts of court papers.

Are Miah claiming this is a LBA?

You could write to Miah, as RK, and deny the debt if they are. And then suggest that they/you use a recognised ADR service. They will say you are to late for this but that is not true...

Parking Eye v Barry Beavis [2015] EWCA Civ 402.

 

MOORE-BICK LJ

 

If so, whether that caused a significant imbalance in the parties’ rights and obligations under the contract to the detriment of the motorist

 

The test for good faith was found at paragraph 17 of Lord Bingham’s judgment in Director General of Fair Trading v First National Bank Plc [2002] 1 AC 481

as:

“One of fair and open dealing.

Openness requires that the terms should be expressed fully, clearly and legibly, containing no concealed pitfalls or traps…

 

 

Fair dealing requires that a supplier should not, whether deliberately or unconsciously,

take advantage of the consumer’s necessity, indigence, lack of experience, unfamiliarity with the subject matter of the contract,

weak bargaining position or any other factor listed in or analogous to those listed in Schedule 2 to the Regulations.

 

FAIR and open dealing !!!

who owns the development where you parked? HA or provate developer.

If the latter I would bet a penny to a pound that the contract with the parking co was signed by the management co of the block and therefore not worth a light.

 

 

If you can give us some more information like when and how you got the first ticket/demand,

the dates of the letters since and an idea of the wording of the signage at the site

and where it is placed we can formulate a suitable one line response.

 

Miah's are acting as debt collectors at the moment so unless it says letter before action or letter befoes claim

and mentions the Civil Procedures Regs then it isnt an lba but a begging letter.

 

 

However, it is advisable to respond robustly to such letters as they think you are a soft target if you dont reply

or give a response that is all wishy washy.

 

 

What you say in your defence id in the latter category and wonty do you any favours, either with them or a court so dont use it,

it is aclled mitigation and isnt worth a bean in this circumstance.

 

If you are pushed for time a short letter saying that

"you do not believe that UKPCS has the authority of the freeholder to make contracts and start civil claims in their own name

and put it to strict proof that such authority exists and not just a contract with a third party such as the managing agents which as you well know has no standing."

 

I bet they will go quiet then as they wont want to show you anything

UKCPS ALWAYS make mistakes on every single ticket they give out. No exceptions.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
