    • You can draft the letter before action yourself and send it against the individual that's not giving you clear responses. No need to involve solicitors at this stage.   I would recommend you do it today, start maintaining a paper trail. 
    • Obviously the real proof will come when the contract is revealed. In the meantime you could write to the DVLA asking who applied for your data back in 2017. And show them the signage where both companies are listed and ask in view of who asked for your details, did the right one apply and what is their view on both companies showing on the sign. Is this legal and explain that you are in the middle of a Court case and they may be called.
    • dear simple simon. with ref claim xxxxxx on xxxx date you sent me proof of the signs at the time of you issuing the parking charge notices listed in your particulars of claim of the above court claim    these signs are not in the name of the claimant stated on the claimform ref above....   should you wish to continue with the said claim , i give notice this file will form part of my evidence should you wish to proceed and waste court time.   just musing
    • Applications for Summary Judgment are not awarded on who did or didn't do what......they cant get a default judgment on either as you have submitted a defence...they could get Summary Judgment.   Summary judgment is only awarded in the follow circumstances...   ·        A claim or issue or a defence to a claim or issue has no real prospect of success and ·        There is no other compelling reason for a trial.

    • What I’ve read elsewhere (and from being in touch with someone who has won using the above argument - but who also notes that others have lost using the same argument- it seems to be dependent upon the court/judge) is that it is possible to win BUT I’m not entirely certain if it holds actual legal weight.    @dx100uk write a letter you say? To DBL or VCS?   something like this??;   I am writing in respect to the above noted County Court Claim issued by your legal team in connection to three separate Parking Charge Notices (PCNs) issued to vehicle registration mark XXXXXX. I was the named keeper of the vehicle at the time of the PCN issue but do not claim liability.   I wish you to note the following; whilst you may ‘think’ that you have adequate grounds to make this claim, the simple facts are that you have absolutely no right (in law??) and the evidence I have uncovered as a direct result of your claim, along with the evidence and wording contained in the communications you sent to me (dated XX August 2017) irrefutably show that you (Vehicle Control Services) have absolutely no claim in law.   Please be aware that should continue to pursue this claim not only will you incur your own costs but also costs that I will be claiming against you for bringing this unfounded and malicious claim which bears no legal weight whatsoever and is in breach of the IPC Code of Conduct (Versions 5 and 6).  Subsequently, I will be reporting you to the ICO for improper use of KADOE and to the IPC for breach of the Code of Conduct.   Yours faithfully,     Scans coming later....

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

An update of sorts. 

I haven't heard anything since submitting my "Formal Defence" on 12th Dec. 

Logged into MCOL to see if there was any update - nothing showing there. 

 

Is it down to me to ring court (generally 20+ min wait on phone!) or just wait?

Still nothing in the post, over nine weeks now since the deadline for producing my "formal defence".

Getting slightly worried that something's gone amiss and I'm half expecting a CCJ in the post. 

 

I have twice tried to phone the court and have been no.36 in the queue and just now no.44 in the queue. 

I thought contacting the tax office was bad. 

How are we supposed to get help or find out info if this is the way our court system works?

Before Deputy District Judge xxxxx sitting at the County Court at xxxxxx."

 

IT IS ORDERED THAT

 

1. By no later than 4pm on 12th December 2019 the Defendant shall file a formal defence to the claim"

 

Which Court issued the Order above ?

Which court are you trying to ring?

Possibly they have discontinued their claim on receipt of your defence ?

My local court issued the order and that is who I am trying to call. Tried again and I was 68 in the queue!! So still not found out. Obviously normally I'd expect the next step to be witness statements but it would appear we have both more or less done that. Just wondering whether something's got lost in post. Even with Christmas it's been a long time

Thanks for the responses Andy. 

Yes, I was able to call into the court in person - but not overly helpful - first being told to call the number I had been calling (and being an average of no.50 in the queue) and then eventually being given an email address by the court usher - I have emailed them and got an auto response stating a response within 10 working days. 

 

I do consider it quite a long delay since the deadline for providing the "Formal Defence" - but I know that sometimes process can be a bit slow. 

 

Thanks again.

Ridiculous isn't it...so he wasn't able to check the claim number on the courts system to tell you the status ...i suppose that would be too easy.

 

I doesn't take 9 weeks...something is seriously amiss here...hopefully it is discontinuance and they have failed to inform you.

Court usher was a woman and no she said she did not have access to the court system - well actually I think she said she "wasn't able to provide that info to me" - so probably was able to access but advised not to provide this info to public. 

 

I haven't heard anything from the claimant either - so not all bad.

A long awaited update - I assume the courts were closed due to Covid-19 - but my case has now been allocated to my local court for August. 

 

And before I go on, I do hope everyone on here is safe and well (as can be). 

 

This is on the assumption that the claimant pays the court fee before mid-July. 

 

Assumed case will take "no longer than 3 hours". 

 

Each party must deliver to the other party and to the court office copies of all documents on which that party intends to rely on at the hearing no later than 28 May. 

 

From my point of view, I assume that will just be a copy of my witness statement/particularised defence. 

 

Any advice at this stage please?

Is it just a case of sending the copies of the details to date to other party and court? 

Should I be coming up with anything new at this stage?

 

Sorry - I know it's been a while and I'm not expecting the helpful experts on here to remember the details

- the last requirement from my point of view was to send a formal defence to the claim (which more or less took the form of a WS)

 

- the claimant had already produced a WS despite the court not explicitly requiring one

- so that's where we're at

- my formal defence/WS rebutted their "original t&c" partly based on the reference to pin numbers

- which were not a feature of credit cards at the date of the original agreement. 

 

Thanks for reading and any help at this stage greatly appreciated.

Responding to your PM.

 

Yes your standard disclosure will consist of your statement and any document referred to in either your initial defence or statement...CCA request/response CPR 31.14 request /response etc etc......

Just got an email from the solicitors

- not sure whether they will have sent copy in Royal Mail too

- just stating that they will be relying on the evidence in their "premature" WS produced back in October last year. 

 

This is the WS that I based my formal defence/Witness statement on .

 

assuming they pay their fee by July,

and the case goes ahead in August,

it will be a simple case of persuading the judge that their lack of credit agreement and default notice are enough to win me the case?

 

Sit and wait

Update!!! 

 

Email received from solicitors (well I was cc'd in on an email to the Court)

 

Notice of Discontinuance,

 

Does this mean it's a "Success" and no more to be heard?

 

Or potentially they could find the correct paperwork and start a new claim?

 

But, for the moment, I am happy.

 

Thanks for the help and guidance on this thread.

Well done! This is more than likely the end of it, but you should check with the court at some stage that they've officially discontinued.

 

They can still chase you for the debt, and they might, but you can just ignore. If they were to issue proceedings again, you can refer to this case in your submissions - it won't reflect very well on them if their case is similar to this time. The chances of them trying again are probably slim though.

Doing a quick Google search on discontinuance, I note something about "paying the defendant's costs"

 

Am I pushing my luck in chasing this up?

 

As for the contribution - that's a given

The email was to the local court where the claim was to be heard in August; they had until some date in July to pay the fee for continuing with the proceedings.

Great news...thread title amended.

 

CPR 38.6 does not apply to small claims track ...so no you cant claim costs.

Cheers. I thought it might not be relevant. 

I'm glad that they have "seen sense" - but it's still quite stressful that the situation got this far. 

I even offered to "negotiate" with them (as instructed by the court) but heard nothing from them
