    • Hi everyone. Just a quick update. I followed the advice and tried calling DCB Legal, however they are still not answering their phones, nor have they responded to the emails I've sent, the last one being a request to Consent to a Set Aside.    I am posting all the SAR's tonight, special delivery signed for etc and keeping receipts for costs.   I started panicking on Monday as the CCJ is now preventing me from finding a new rental and I  am due out in 4 weeks. So I contacted a solicitor who said, as you all have thanks, that they think I stand a good chance of a Set Aside for all the reason mentioned in this thread and even more so because DCBL aren't even answering their phones or replying to emails. To save money the solicitor suggested I apply for the N244 myself as it is straight forward, and to only use them when the case returns to court to ensure a better chance of success and recovering all my costs and legal expenses. I'm wondering if it would be better just to let them get on with it, as I really need to get the Set Aside done ASAP, or my landlord will begin eviction proceedings. I know my rights, but I don;t want to overstay as a bad reference will also get in the way.   On another note, other solicitors have been operating for weeks, I wonder if DCBL are using this time as a tactic and not responding to peoples emails, hoping they will just pay on their website.  I read about the OBS Legal case in 2011, why are these dodgy outfits allowed to continue operating? I notice countless pensioners complaining about being fined at St Johns Retail Park, how do OBS & DCB sleep at night? There must be better ways of making money than scamming people? At the very least, putting up Substantial signage would go a good way to warn people and show they are not out to scam.    Thanks for everyone's help so far.    
    • Brillianty, keep that email safe and print a hard copy, the PPC should tell you its dead, but keep that email, as its not unknown for a PPC to revive it 6 months or a year later.
    • Ill just copy bulk of doc:   "Our solicitors were instructed as a result of legal action that took place in respect of outstanding arrears on your account.  In accordance with the terms and conditions of your loan agreement, the legal costs incurred below have been applied to your account.    This fee will not attract interest and will not affect your current arrears balance.  This will remain on your account until you pay the fee or when your account is settled."
    • 2 weeks ago a car went into the back of me when i was stationary.   All OK and despite a massive shunt into the back of us, only one visible neck injury.   I had only had the car for 1 week therefore the policy for 1 week..  I called my new insurer Hastings Insurance and asked them what the process was as it was not my fault.  They said you need to log it online.   I did that - the only method was by submitting a claim, Called and ask them if that was correct as I didn't want to make a claim, it was not my fault.  They said this was the way to go so I logged all the details online as instructed.   At the moment I have a hire car which was delivered the next day via Enterprise.   Hastings called and advised that CoPart would collect my Micra on Monday (Monday just gone).    I asked Hastings if at any point i wanted the car back I could do that they said that would be fine.  (My plan was to have the car assessed and 'buy it back; and get it repaired)  Received a text from Hastings saying my car was assessed and marked as Grade B, no longer road worthy, and no i cant buy it back. They have offered £675 for my Nissan Micra.   My Micra was extremely clean, 61K Miles, Full Service history had been in our family for years and taken good care of.   Hastings advised that out of that money unless I have a new car to go onto the policy they will have to deduct the £450 for the rest of the year outstanding on the policy meaning that from this I would end with about £275 and no car.   So to get a new car I will have to ask my parents to borrow some money to buy a new car to get it on to the policy (which Hastings have given me 2 weeks to do!)    I asked Hastings what was happening as this felt like I was claiming on my own policy but it was not my fault, they explained that the other driver had not admitted liability (although it was certain they would have to) and that until the claim was settled with a final cost they would not be able to claim these costs back from the other drivers insurance company.   Also can anyone recommend a good lawyer to help me with legal costs?   Sorry that this is a long post I just get the feeling that something is out of sorts here.

Our date is court with P.E. has been 'stuck' due to them not paying the hearing fees on time. The hearing date has now been vacated.

 

Thanks for help/info and advice from this (and other Social Media) info pages.

glad to be of help.

However by keeping us informed of everything that is going on we can also build up a picture of how the parking bandits change their tactics and are thus able to help others. Knowing more about this will enable us to continue doing this.

OK. Here's the story.

 

We received the PCN and someone put together an appeal for us.

That appeal (to POPLA) failed.

I then started asking for help on several sites, including this one.

 

The first response i received, and it turned out to be good, was from the other site so that's where i based my defence from. I came on here looking for reference info to similar cases so that i could build as strong a defence as possible.

 

P.E. did the expected and sent loads of 'scary' documents but i was prepared to take a stand against them. Like I've said i wanted (and found), lots of reference info on this and other sites before i submitted my 'Defence Pack'

 

I sincerely hope I've not upset anyone with asking a few questions on here because i really respect and appreciate what you guys do.

 

So, hopefully, you guys will now be able to add to your ref material on P.E. that they do take people to the door step of the courts and then don't pay the court fees.

I'd not come across that scenario before.

If you think i may have info useful to you please let me know and i'd be happy to share.

Whilst this could be a deliberate move from ParkingLie, it would be unusual for someone there to actually realise that they're about to lose another load of cash. They aren't usually that intelligent.

 

I'm wondering if this might be more likely to be some kind of 'Schoolboy error' by this weeks YTS kid at ParkingLie. If it is, they may be likely to either try it on or try again. :|

Had nothing off P.E. but wouldn't expect anything either as it would cost them at least the cost of a stamp. My letter came off the court. I believe it will cost them even more to go back to court with the case.

Nothing really usual we have it all the time from DCA issued court claim...they issue claims on mass....if defended on mass they dont know where they are up to and forget to follow the process...hence struck out.

You're not going to like the answer :lol:

 

When... To be absolutely 100% sure. 6 years from the day after the ticket! Stick any paperwork that you've had up in the loft and forget about it. But at least you've got everything if ParkingLie do try to be silly.

 

How... Nothing you can do now.
