    • 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!

Hi Guys,

 

Back in 2013 I was being harassed by both NCP and UKPC due to being the registered keeper of a vehicle that they were claiming had had several parking tickets issued against it (3 for each company, 6 in total).

 

Being in Scotland I followed the advice that was applicable at the time and ignored them. The matter was passed between various debt collectors and I haven't heard anything since early 2014.

 

I moved address last year and have had a royal mail redirection in place since then as I didn't want them gaining a default judgement in the event that they issued court proceedings.

 

The redirection is due to finish shortly and I am considering contacting each of them to advise them of my updated address details.

 

Just wondering what peoples thoughts on this are?

If it is advisable to do this what is the best way to approach this?

no such thing as trespass and pofa in Scotland

safe to ignore

 

the ONLY way would be if you identified yourself as the driver to them

 

regardless to the letter writing from them that doesn't change the SB date.

if they were PCN's from prior to 5 yrs then they are extinguished under Scottish law ..

 

bad move if they did issue a degree

 

however..i would suspect these tickets were issued whilst parked in England ,

as I don't think UKPC nor PE have any Scottish carparks?

 

full details please

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi, thanks for the reply.

As far as I'm aware the five years passing to make them SB isn't up until 2018 so there's still a year to go.

 

 

The tickets were issued in 2013.

Both car parks are definitely in Scotland.

Don't really want to go into specifics that could potentially identify myself but both NCP and UKPC have car parks in all four of Scotland's main cities.

I'm on the east coast.

 

The question is,

with them not yet being statute barred

and both of them having my old address

do i update them with my new address details?

 

 

I'm currently saving for a mortgage deposit and really can't afford to have a CCJ on my file if they get a default judgment using my old address.

ah just read you're not quite up to speed with Scottish law as you've mentioned CCJ.

 

a court summons in Scotland HAS to be issued person to person by a messenger-at -arms to YOU

 

so no they cant get default decrees.

 

sleep happy
