Yes print 3 copies......Claimant Solicitor not the claimant....the address will be the same as your Proposed Notice of Allocation. CCMC Salford.
This is to allocate the claim to track...the next stage of the claim process.....as for if you have to pay .....who knows until it actually gets to a hearing and you win or lose.
now I notice 2 things,
1 they have failed so say who the creditor is so they have failed to create ANY liability
2 thay have failed to indicate the location of the alleged incident, Chalon way industrial estate? housing? multistorey car park? the POFA is clear on this, no correct location, no charge.
3 in the second NTK the image of the car leaving appears to be an image of a car entering the car park on the wrong side of the road ( I do this a lot)
As the cameras they use are at best 95% accurate this leaves room for doubt that they have actually captured your vehicle in both pictures as entry and leaving for the same parking event.
E&W=England and Wales
for correct sign see TSRGD paper on disabled parking and within that fig 6. note layout and size
Whilst you are at it look at all of the suggested floor markings and bay sizes. The ones shown dont pass the regulations. That means they have fiale to meet planning regs.
So then we look at intent- now they will argue that the intent is clear but then as the layout, markings and signage fail to follow the code of practice they will be considered advisory (as they should be on private land). Can it be true that you can be sued for ignoring someones advice, esp when there isnt a contractual term that says anything about it in the first place?
In the fullness of time you will be copying this pdf and using it as evidence.
In the meanwhile you stick to the deadlines imposed by the court procedure and if they fail to pay the allocation fee in tiem you ask for the case to be chucked out.
At near the end of thsi month you post your outline defence via the moneyclaim portal and state that
(1) the claim is denied as there was no offer of a contractual term to breach in such a manner
(2) the claimant has failed to show a cause for action against the defendant, being the keeper of the vehicle because they have failed to follow the protocols of the POFA so cannot create a keeper liability in this matter. The claimant has failed to identify the driver at the time
(3) the Particulars of claim are so vague it is impossible to determine what the claimant is actually relying upon to show a cause for action in terms of the location, date of event and how the the amount of the claim (sum of £160) was arrived at and particulary the signage they rely on to form a contract with the public. The defendant invites the court to issue a Case management Order under CPR3.3 to instruct the claimant provide evidence that signage that expressly offers a contract exists as claimed and that this contract was then breached as the defendant believes that the claim has no reasonable grounds and is a waste of the courts resources and should be dismissed if such evidence is not produced.
the last point may well be ignored whislt the paperwork is processed at Northampton as they dont read much of it and it will only be read once it gets allocated to your local court so prepare to get as far as a hearing in any case.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
