you shoulod have acknowledged the claim a fortnight ago so you need to create an account on moneyclaimonline NOW and both acknowledge and submit a skeleton defence. this should be as follows.

 

1. the claimant has failed to show a cause for action against the defendant as they have not stated in what capacity they are suing him, as driver fo the vehicle who ebtered a contract with them or as keeper under the protocols of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. the defendant denies being the driver at the time.

 

2 the claimants has failed to provide a breakdonw of the claim as required under CPR 16.4. the claim for brach of contract totaks £100 and there is no explanationas to why this has now been inflated to £236 as the POFA limits anty clim to the sum set out in the Notice to Keeper.

 

3. In any case, the defendant denies that any contract exists between the claimant and himself.

 

get this submitted NOW and you may be OK but in reality you are already subject to a default judgement.

Why on earth didnt you post this up when you got it

Hi everyone,

I have done as recommended and things are progressing.

 

I have received a letter from he County Court requesting that I complete a N180 form.

 

It looks simple enough, but is there anything specfic that I should or shouldn't be saying on the form?

 

...further update, I haven't received anything back from CEL in respect to the requests made in the above template.

good, that means you can put in your defence that you do not believe they have the authorisations as they have failed to produce them as a response to your CPR 31.14.

 

 

Also means that you can argue later that their actions are unreasonable and thus claim a full costs recovery which will include money for your research time.

 

 

Once CEL see this in your defence they tend to try and badger you into settling for a lesser amount and then either drop the claim or just fail to turn up

...another update.

Yes, you were right again. They did badger me to settle this at a reduced cost, which I have ignored and they haven't replied to my previous correspondence (template by dx100uk, above). I have now received a Small Claims Hearing.

 

I would appreciate some advice on preparing for this as I've never been in to a Small Claims Court before (I'm a good boy).

this means you do nothing,

their bluff has been called by the court process and they now have to either pay up the allocation fee or the claim is dead.

This is not a hearing, it is an instruction to them to put up or shut up.

 

Even if they pay htis I would happily take a bet that they will drop the matter before it gets to a hearing. So prepare your defence so you can exchange documents a fortnight before the january date.

 

Also take down this attachment as it has your name and the court left on it.

they identify you and may convince CEL to try and apply pressure on you by telling you they know you are taking advice on a forum and that is somehow wrong.

 

It isnt but they will use anything to get you to waver and settle before the hearing because they know they dont have a case.

so make a note on your calendar and as soon as they fail to pay the fee you get on to the court.

 

If they do pay the fee them you work on your witness statement and other evidence and show us what you intend to go with.

 

This is still a long way away but get your pictures and other evidence prepared, they will produce false images of signage and claim that is what is there.

I have finally had a response from CEL.

 

They have provided the information that I was recommended to request (photos/all correspondance etc) in April/May.

 

As well as this, I haven't received any more concerning the court action and the deadline of 21 Dec has passed.

 

How do I find out if they paid the fees?

check on your moneyclaim online console or phone the court.

If you quote the case ref any court can tell you but as your local court will have the paperwork best ask them and then you can request they ask the judge to stay the claim.

 

Court officers can do quite a lot on their own initiative and some are good at helping people making enquiries and some are obstructive and may demand you use a N244 and pay £255 for what should be an automatic thing.

 

you will find out soon enough when you ask about the stay.

After what must be over 100 attempts, spread over several days, I have finally got through - CEL DID pay the fees, so the case is on.

 

Being that I'm not the most organised person in the world,

I did not submit my witness statement prior to the required 14 days (the case is to be heard on the 18th Jan).

This was because the deadline for paying the court fees was just a few days before Christmas, so I had other things on my mind.

So, What can I do?

 

On 4th Jan, I received the CEL's pack with all of their evidence,

but haven't put together a pack of my open because I completely forgot about it until theirs arrived;

 

I appreciate that this is no defence.

 

That’s exactly 14 days before the hearing.

I wasn’t home, s

assume that the postman signed for it.

Is this legal?

 

When I checked the Royal Mail website, there’s a scrawl that obviously isn’t mine, so can this be considered inadmissible?

 

Without going in to too much detail,

from what I can see,

in my opinion their witness statement is flawed

- the sign I saw stating that there was 3 hours parking belonged to another parking company, not CEL.

 

Their signs state 2 hours,

but I did not pass one on the way to my parking space.

 

How was I supposed to know the difference?

I know that I was parked for 3h 7m, but isn't that within the 10min grace period that parking attendants give (or have I imagined that?).

you had better learn to read properly and byn that I mean read things thoroughly. CEL havent submitted a DEFENCE, that is for you to do.

 

As for NOT writing an submitting your defence you should have read the court paperwork and other threads so you would know that you stick to the timetable regardless of what the other side does. If they say tey are drodping their claim you still attend court unless the COURT has told you otherwise.

 

Get your defnce writtne tonight, post it here for peopel to comment on and then get it sent to court by both letter mail and email attachment.

 

You neerd pictures of the signs, you need pland of the car park suitably anotated, you need to tell us whether they have planning and if they dont you use the document linked in the parking pranksters blogspot of dec 2017 to show why they need it and wehy thier signs are ILLEGAL and thus no contract can be formed.

 

You have had over a year to get a grip of this and still you havent doen a thing about it that can be said to be decisive so time to put it all together and produce soemthing that will knock them over.

 

Are the images in their WS the same as at the actual site or just computer mock ups? Thye usually use the latter so compare whrit evidence with the reality.

@dx100uk

 

I'm afraid so.

 

@ericsbrother

Having not been through anything like this before;

I admit that I have been a little ignorant to what is required.

 

I have had parking tickets before that I have contested successfully,

but they have never got this far and I was expecting this to be the same.

My bad.

 

They've sent a massive pack of info.

I'll scan it all and get it up on here ASAP.

Is it acceptable to copies of their defence as my defence?

 

Attached is the CEL pack of information.

I have broken it up in to 5 sections because it was over 22mb.

I will post that up if that is prefered.

 

I will work on my pack and upload it as soon as I have completed it.

claimant WS in post 46 sorted.

 

the court cases they mention are not applicable

there is already a WS here that blows them apart.

 

have you gone and got and CHECKED:

 

the planning permission for the signs

 

the planning permission for the cameras.

 

 

the ORIGINAL parking specs in the planning permission when the estate was granted permission...typically free parking is 3 hours, no-one can change that.

 

have they sent a copy of the current and PAID UP contract with the land owner?

 

 

whomever turns up for cohen

you check they are a registered solicitor or they cant say a word!!

Those cases have been rebutted before as DX indicates, and Beavis is only relevant to it;s own facts, so not applicable here,

 

Amazed they didn't trot out some other old discredited chestnuts with no relevance like Elliott v Loake and CPS v AJH Films. as Belt & Braces

We could do with some help from you.

well, their sign is as said a computer mock up so you had bertter takle some pictures of th real signs with you.

 

no mention of any futher costs beinmg claimed as part of that cpontract so they cant and in any case when they are claiming from the keeper under the POFA the amount is limited to what is demanded on the invoice so there usurious debt decovery fees and admin arent legal. Drive this point home so that if for some reason you do lose then they will only get the £100.

 

The plan isnt a plan so use a grab from google earth to show what it really looks like from above. Even small differences will make the rest of their evidence unrelaible. Their signs arent compliant with their Accredited Trade Association and therefore the signs dont comply with para 12 of the POFA

 

the signage piccy on page 16 of their WS clearly cant be read from a passing car and there is no evidence that the core terms they rely on are visible and as they say 2 hours maximum feee parking this indicates there is an offer to park for longer than 2 hours under other conditions. No offer for an extended period appears or any explanation as to how you pay for stopping beyond 2 hours is indicated so it isnt a fair contract.

 

clearly the actual 3 hours permitted parking period renders their contract void. The terms on that sign are totally different to the other signs so there is confusionas to what is being offered. This means that s62 of the consumer rights act applies and the whole lot are not binding. Same goes with the sign at entrance, different so the others arent a binding contract but at best an invitation to treat

 

you take copies of the POFA and the CRA 2015 with you as the judge wont be digging them out just to make you happy

 

I am not happy that you still refer to their defence when it is a plaintiff's witness statement. This is what I mena about reading things properly, you still arent doing this so you may well miss a lot of important things because you answer what you think has beed said rather than what is actually there. Pay attention and you wont drop yourself in it.
