so just follow the advice given in the other threads and if they are stupid enough to threaten court action you respond to that but nothing before that.
The barriers might have been removed due to a loack of planning permission so chack with the council. If they know nothing about any of it then enquiries to the land agnets/management co would be in order.
"Dear Simple simon" as Simon Renshaw Smith owns the company
drop the reference to your lawyer. if you had one he would be writing this letter
dont ask for an explanation, it only repeats what you say 2 lines later anyway
you ignore this begging letter.
Also yu check with the council about planning permission, if you cnat find it on the planning portal you ask the council planning dept about any applicatiosn for that address.
You cnat assume things but you can state that you do not belive they have the necessary contracts/permissions/consents because they have failed to provide them when requested under CPR 31.14
now there is a thing called Standard Disclosure for all civil proceedings (CPR 31.6) so they cant wriggle out of it so easily as that includes anything that adversely affects their case so if they wont produce their contract with the LL then you can say that you believe they have failed to do so because it aversely affects their case. they are then caught by the "when did you stop beating your wife" impossibility.
make sure that you have all documents you need to avoid them throwing it back at you but generally there wont be an equivalent if you arent the driver!
Here is the section which applies. Internal VAT Guidance.
The Sheriff’s Officer organises the activities of the bailiffs and, where necessary, the sale of the debtor’s goods. In some areas, they are a salaried employee of the Under-Sheriff. In others they are a self-employed sole proprietor or partner working either full- time as a Sheriff’s Officer or part-time as a Sheriff’s Officer with other business activities such as an auctioneer.
If they are not an employee their services are taxable. The position of bailiffs is similar to this.
The other people involved in High Court debt recovery work, for example locksmiths, auctioneers or removal men are also regarded as making taxable supplies in the course of their businesses.
(b) Nature and value of supply
The total fees and allowable expenses payable in respect of services provided by the different people involved are set out in the relevant Sheriff’s Fees Order. The value for VAT purposes is the amount each person gets as their share of the statutory fee and any expenses charged. The full amount charged, including tax, is recoverable from the debtor.
so you print off the POFA and add that to your bundle and then show in clear detail as to why their NTK is defective becasue of the different timescales required under S4, 5, 8 and 9.
The "disappearing ticket" problem means that they have to show evidenec that it was correctly issued to the driver and their NTK was issued in the correct time.
Knowing when they got your keeper details from the DVLA would assist you in knocking this back but it is undoubtedly too late to get this data from the DVLA hence using the parkingn prankster's commentary as heresay evidence that this is a common problem amongst certai parking co's and invite the judge to belive you when you say one wasnt attached to the vahicle and your dog didnt eat it.
