Hi,

 

I am in the same position and have received a 'scary letter' from BW legal.

 

It was alleged at l'pool airport, Vehicle Control Services. I have not acknowledged anything they've sent me so far but now it's with their 'legal team' and the price has gone up to £160 with the threat of county court proceedings etc.

 

Do you have any advice on best course of action please?

 

thanks.

Hi there.

 

I have been issued with a Parking Charge Notice from Vehicle Control Services at John Lennon Airport for allegedly stopping in a no stopping zone.

 

I've read lots about this but have seen some contradictory advice about whether or not to respond to their charges.

 

So far I haven't acknowledged any correspondence from them, most recently a letter from 'BWLegal' stating that they've taken over the debt and that the fine has now gone up to £160 to cover their admin costs.

 

Failure to comply will result in court proceedings, CCJ's legal costs etc. etc.

 

Not sure if they have a case to proceed with against me and I should cut my losses?

 

thanks.

Many Thanks.

 

So it's a 2 liner sent to BW Legal, something along the lines of:

 

"Dear VCS,

 

I reply to your letter sent on .....

there has been no breach of any contractual condition therefore we owe you nothing."

 

Then ignore any more correspondence from them UNTIL (or unless) I get a claim letter from the court...

 

regards,

Phil

airports are covered by byelaws and therefore no POFA so no reason for them to contact keeper.

 

Also no stopping is a false reason to claim,

if you dont stop how are you supposed to read the contract offered to you by their signage?

They always lose any claims on this point and have changed the wording of their signs but that still doesnt change the law

Hi,

 

thanks for your correspondence on this thread.

 

I have since received 3 letters from BW Legal:

 

A response to my letter stating that by entering the site,

I have accepted the 'terms & conditions' operated by 'Our Client' which were clearly visible and by stopping on the roadway I have breached the terms.

 

A "Final Notice" dated 14th November giving me 17 days to pay before county court proceedings commence against me.

 

A "Letter of Claim" dated 13 December sating the BW Legal have been instructed by VCS to commence legal action in the form of issuing a claim against me in the county court.

(Estimated total cost would be £238.42 with court fees, interest and solicitors costs.)

 

I have not responded to these but I expect my next letter to be from the court, in which case I won't be able to ignore?

 

thanks.

Hello there.

 

Yes, if you get a letter from the court you need to come back here for further advice and we'll advise you what to do.. The guys may ask to see the letter of claim, but I'll leave them to ask you if they think it would be helpful. Chances are it's something we've seen before and was harmless. Hang on in there. :)

quite correct

you should never ignore a letter of claim.

nor a court claimform

 

its a shame the letter of claim is so old now

you ideally should have replied to it

 

what did you write before please

as that might well have covered it mind

respond using the same words as I suggested to CW182 in their post. To nt be afraid to be rude, they deserve it and will take you for a mug if you try to be reasonable.

Hi,

 

my letter to them was the 2 liner with no further details contained.

 

Dear VCS,

 

I reply to your letter sent on .....

there has been no breach of any contractual condition therefore 1 owe you nothing.

 

In the letter of claim, the've sent me a reply form giving me 30 days to respond or it 'could' result in court proceedings, but they state they've been instructed to do so.

 

The reply letter is 'tick the box':

 

box a: I agree I owe the debt

box b: I owe some of the debt but not all

box c: I don't know if I owe the debt

box d: I dispute the debt

box e: I will pay what I owe now

box f: I will pay but need time

box g: I intend to get debt advice

box h: I have provided documents

box i: I need more documents or info

 

obviously there is then space to add further detail.

 

I can write my own letter or use theirs to reply?

 

thanks

Great Thanks.

 

One question before I type up - is there a risk that receiving 2 or more identical letters from different people makes it less credible and so would you reword anything?

 

cheers

as said on the other post,

if they got 1000 letters they would then realise the game was up for them.

If 200 of the people sending those identical letters got togehter for a class action they could put VCS out of business ( well, certainly at this site).

 

They make money out of ignorance and the fact that when they tell lies it doesnt impinge on any other claim when they are caught out in a case.

 

If they sued the same person for false reasons 6 times they can be barred from ever suing anyone again but sue 6000 people once for false reasons and nothing can be done
