Thanks for the advice so far. I've defended the issue on line and now have received 'notice of proposed allocation to the small claims track'

 

I'll return this and hope that VCS doesn't pursue the case. As a worse case scenario and assuming that I am taken to court and lose, I'm currently liable for £185 and presumably the cost of VCS taking me to court - c. £65? Total: £245.

 

Is this correct?

 

In retrospect the hassle and time taken fighting this, I can see why people pay the £60

One last question - is it worth going through mediation?

3 copies of the blank n180...

as long as the one sent to you is from the court.?? not vcs's copy?

 

whilst reading those threads earlier [and what defence did you file please??]

you'll see its no to mediation.

 

don't give the fleecers your email/phone/sig on your copy to them [vcs] but do so on the court one

Thanks, I send one copy of n180 to the courts, one to Simon and keep one?

 

Defence was on the lines of:

 

1. It is admitted that Defendant is the recorded keeper of [motor vehicle].

 

2. It is denied that the Claimant has complied with Schedule 4, Protection of Freedoms Act 2012; see paragraph 5.1a. The car park signs are owned by Excel parking. Under CPR 31.14 I have requested evidence of the claimants contract between VCS and the landowner that assigns the right to enter into contracts with the public and make claims in their own name, and proof of planning permission granted for signage etc under the Town and Country Planning Act 2007.

 

3. It is denied that the Claimant entered into a contract with the Defendant. As held by the Upper Tax Tribunal in Vehicle Control Services Limited v HMRC [2012] UKUT 129 (TCC), any contract requires offer and acceptance. The Claimant was not contracted by the landowner to provide car-park management services and is not capable of entering into a contract with the Defendant on its own account, as the carpark is owned by and the terms of entry set by the landowner. Accordingly, it is denied that the Claimant has authority to bring this claim. The proper Claimant is the landowner.

 

4. The Particulars of Claim is denied in its entirety. It is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief at all."

This is all still dragging on

 

I've received a mediation email today, which I'm going to ignore.

The odd thing is that the email states that all parties have agreed to mediation

- I have not agreed to this at all.

Any idea why this is?

 

Interestingly this is the first reference to excel who are responsible for the car park.

Everything previous to this has been from VCS, I assume Simon has finally realised his error but has still yet to provide me with any information that I have requested or a copy of his N180.

This is still dragging on.

 

Last month I received a letter from the courts setting a date in January, but that they had still not received information from VCS who had until mid December to comply.

 

This weekend I received a letter from VCS offering a reduction in fine to £125 rather than £185 and pointing out that the court would look favourably on their gesture as per the Civil Procedure Rules.

 

I have still not received any evidence requested from VCS and suspect that this is a final bluff before the court case is dropped.

 

I won't be paying the reduced sum but should I respond to or ignore the letter?

 

Thanks

well get your head around these speculative invoice and court claims

you've been here since april and have or should be reading up

 

making a very basic mistake like calling it a fine, shows things aren't sinking in

and if this ever gets to the witness statement stage and or you being infront of a judge

silly mistakes like this can be fatal to the way you conduct your case

I think I would have been better paying the initial £60 'charge'. A lot of hassle, a lot of worry, a lot of time and a lot of recorded delivery letters. Would have been galling but for peace of mind I know what I'd do next time

Which is exactly how these **** work, badgering and harrassing so that people pay up to avoid the hassle.

My time as a Police Officer and subsequently time working within the Motor Trade gives me certain insights into the problems that consumers may encounter.

not sure where anyone advised wasting money on recorded delivery?

2nd class stamp with free proof of posting is all that was needed

in law you only have to prove a letter was sent.

Seems a very logical approach to me - to make sure that my case is as good as it can be in court I can demonstrate that not only that I sent all relative documents to the claimant, but that they also received them. Not quite a fatal mistake but its best to cover all corners. They on the other hand have sent me nothing.

 

To be fair, with or without recorded delivery, I haven't included the cost of half a day's leave to attend court in my calculations, which along with the above headaches would definitely make initial payment of the 'charge' the best option in this case, and would now be my advise to anyone else in this situation. Here's hoping that it doesn't get to that stage.
