    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Hello,

 

My dog was in the car and think he may have knocked ticket off the dash as it wasn't a sticky one...dog not in any pictures taken so cannot prove he was there, however you only need to smell my car to know : )

 

I still have the ticket which was 50p and fine is now £100! I sent a picture of ticket the same day but was rejected, applied to POPLA who also rejected it...I am now on second or third threatening court letter...this ones says unless I pay by 23rd June it goes to their solicitors : (

 

Don't mind going to court but have no idea how much this would cost if I have to pay for the fine and their and mine court fees etc...not sure if I should cough up rather than fork out a grand???

 

How likely is it they will take me to court, is my case a tomato, and if I end up with egg on my face will I need to rob a bank?

Simple. Tell them you welcome court with open arms where you will show the original ticket by the judge to prove they are abusing the court process.

 

And 2nd or 3rd court letter? Nope they're just threatograms.

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..

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I expect the forum regulars will be along later with advice for you. These companies threaten court a lot and usually don't go ahead. Even if they do, there's lots of advice here to help you defend robustly if it gets that far.

 

My understanding is that it would be small claims court, so costs are very limited, someone will tell you more about that. It isn't a fine, it a speculative invoice from a private company. Have they used the word 'fine'?

 

My best, HB

so, we know you have a dof and for some reason horizon parking didnt want to photograph it but to help you we really need to knwo about the parking event, so tell us when it was, where it was and what correspondence you have.

as you have already appealed the PoFa isnt going to help you so it will be down to any contractual obligations that may exist. To help us here we need to knwo what the supposed breach was and what the sign on the land you were parked on said about things. A photo of the sign at the entrance to the land or par park is best. Also, if there are different signs in the par park then picture of those as well (plus conditions on machine if different).

Usually the deciding factor is the exact wording so are you supposed to pay for a breach of contract or is it a contractual charge ( again wording will determine) You ight have a demand for the wrong sort of payment and then they can go whistle
