Hello all.

On August 12th a charge notice has been issued to my car by Ace Security known as Pace Recovery & Storage. Pleasse have a look at the picture (google street map) how the place looks like:

 

Around October 20th I've got this letter from Gladstones Solicitors:

 

In a heat of changing a job and starting a new one, which is quite demanding, I completely forgot to do anything about this letter.

 

Yesterday I've got another correspondence from Gladstones which is a Claim Form, so they taking me to the court now.

 

There are a couple of more papers attached: response pack, ridiculous Admission(specified amount) and defence and counterclaim(specified amount).

 

I do not have a problem with paying fines if it is legal, which I believe is not the case here. If I was there that day or not, or I borrowed the car it is immaterial.

 

I do understand that I should now go online and tick the box of defending my case fully and not pay anything.

What would be your advice?

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

You're right, it isn't a fine. The guys should be along later to advise on MCOL because you need to defend it, as you say.

 

Is there any chance you could redo your attachment as a pdf file please? Jpegs don't work on the forum software and I can't make the images big enough to read.

 

My best, HB

we need to know exactly where the land is and what correspondence you got from Pace and exactly when you received it.

Also, did you respond to any of it.

 

As for the court form,

you return it with the box ticked saying you intend to defend in full.

 

You then have another fortnight to send a skeleton defence and that means simple bullet point as this stage such as no contract formed between claimant and defendant beacuse no keeper liability.

( example) all detail will be added when you have to exchange documents and that will be months away.

 

Their signage is rubbish anysay but tell us exactly where you parked in relation to this signs.

 

Pace will have got it wrong to create a keeper liability but we need to say why at some point.

 

When we know the answers to the above we can go through the next parts as you will be demanding evidence from Gladstones regarding their client's right to make a claim.

 

BTW this is not a fine,

it is a claim for breach of contract

so we will need to see the sign that they rely on to form a contract.

 

 

The particulars of claim are so vague they are worth a complaint to court on their own but that is again for later,

you have to get the other bits sorted first.

There's quite a few cases being struck out when Gladstones have issued the claim, as they fail to provide detailed particulars of claim, and breach Civil Procedure Rule 16.4.

 

I believe the process for applying for a strike out, is obtaining an N224 form, and asking that the claim be struck out, there's some information on the Parking Pranksters blog on this process, as well as some strike out orders you can print off and attach to the application.

 

I believe a sum of £100 is payable for the application mind. Other's may advise further.

Civil Procedure Rule 16.4. was really helpful, thank you for that.

 

I just understood with a help of my good friend that they claiming parking charges for the period of time from 12/08 to 13/09, as stated in Claim Form "Particulars of Claim":

 

- DATE - DESCRIPTION - AMOUNT - DUE DATE

12/08/16 - RegNumber - £150 - 13/09/16

...Parking charges and indemnity costs if applicable...

 

No place, no time, no evidences.

 

Attached papers above its all I've got.

I did not answer to anything yet.

 

 

It was really confusing as they operating there as Ace Security or something like this and then I've got a letter from Gladstones that Pace Recovery wants some money from me.

 

The signage looks like a rag hanging on the fence, as you can see from first attached picture on post 1.

No pole with signs,

no road marks.

If I would be there I would leave the car just in the middle of the picture.

 

"...The particulars of claim are so vague they are worth a complaint to court on their own..."

- totally agree with that and I will not stop when I'll sort these other bits first.

 

From other things - I deeply appreciate the existence of such a forum and your disinterested, selfless help. Thank you.

Trying to do it now.

On a Claim Form in section 'Importand Note' it is said that I can respond to that claim online on MCOL website with claim number and given password.

On MCOL website there are three options: Login, Register as an Individual, Register as an Organisation.

I tried to login but it failed.

Should I chose the second option - Register as an individual - and go through registration process? name, surname, email, password...
