if you wish to put up everything like
then im sure those here now and future victims will find it of value
if you read upload carefully
you'll see its best to upload each as a separate multipage PDF
but ofcourse you'll have to redact each page as a jpg picture 1st before merging each to the relevant multipage pdf .
Thanks I’m happy to put something back !
I didn’t have the courage of my convictions to counter claim even though I was really quite proud of the thoroughness of my court bundle !
i really wanted the opportunity to get into the detail with the judge and felt quite cheated when it ended, but of course I realised that they had just moved on to their next victim
will watch this space 👍
I have created your own topic for this as its import to have it own one
but placed a link on the thread you posted on.
you should never counterclaim that exposes you to further cost and rarely succeeds esp if they disc' the claim
always best to state in a sep letter you will be seeking costs esp loss of days wages at £90 which most judges allow.
as for an sar, its p'haps always better to issue a cpr 31:14 too or in replacement of, an sar.
well done on your important win
My wife has directed me to post on this thread as I have just successfully won against these charlatans
My hearing date was all set at my local court for 31st October 2019
all defence papers were filed and served and frankly I was really looking forward to it!
This morning I received a letter from BW legal stating in a one line response that I was to take this letter as a notice of discontinuance whereby the claimant KBT (armtrac) discontinues all of the claim.
I am beyond disappointed that I didn’t get my chance to see these idiots across a desk!
And that’s it I don’t appear to be able to take this further?
I now realise I should of had the courage of my convictions and faith in the advice of others to issue a counterclaim!
What I have now in my possession is a file of information which would be Gold-dust to the next person in my position!
I feel like I would be able to get some sort of closure if I could pass some of this wisdom on but there are many posters here already and every case is different in its own way
The key points in my defence were as follows and useful to anyone ‘caught’ at Sandy Acres.
Keep the original parking ticket you purchased and send a copy to KBT with a covering letter ASAP
do not identify the driver at any stage of the process!!!!
The blue sign uses the word penalty which is contrary to the IPC codes of practice
The red and white sign has a café open sign in front of it which obscures it from the drivers view both available to download via Google maps
Check the date you receive NTK mine was 71 days
Do an SAR and you will get back the pictures of the alleged offence
in my case they were of such poor quality you could not tell which way up the ticket was in the photo and in no image they held was there a picture showing the ticket and the vehicle numberplate. They offered no other evidence.
Pretty soon you will see the money is being sought escalate until they no longer match the figure on the NTK even if it is sent within 56 days
When you see a breakdown of costs for the money being sought it will ultimately include legal costs, typically £60 that the solicitor knows cannot be recovered in Small Claims Court.
Personally I am now considering reporting BW legal to the law society or solicitors ombudsman for being party to a process which is fundamentally dishonest, an abuse of process, and a complete waste of court resources?
i am happy to help anyone who needs assistance but rest assured that their case against you relies on you caving in and paying, they have no plan B but will try and make you doubt your ability to defend yourself.
Dont worry about small claims Court, it isn’t crown court, just an office with 3 desks and certainly less stressful than a job interview or meeting with the bank and less at stake.
I got to one week from my court date and they gave up!
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!
