    • I am just tidying up the above and noticed something that I'm not sure is important or not. On the claimform they state:- Claimant purchased the balance on the account on 06/10/2016. The letters I received were all dated 24th November 2016   Once I'm ready I assume it's self explanatory entering the information on the moneyclaim site? I've looked around on here and can't see any particular instructions so I'm assuming it's a copy/paste of the defence above?   Thanks
    • Why do you need to write what down please?   AoS is acknowledgement of service via the MCOL website as per dx's instructions. CPR 31:14 is a legal document you need to send to the other side, asking for information.   HB
    • DX - looked back to my old threads on here - the Ordinary Cause was, indeed, thru Nolans, on behalf of Cabot.   Nolan's requested a Joint Motion for the dismissal of this action by way of Decree of Absolvitor, in favour me (Defender), with no expenses due to or by either party   As they couldn't supply any paperwork, my lawyer suggested (I managed to get Legal Aid for this) that unless they dismiss they'd be due me money, and they agreed. This happened around the end of June/beginning of July 2016. What should I do with them now?
    • Hi ok thanks for replies. I had trouble finding how to reply on  my phone and don't have a computer, so am at the library which is pathetic and closes at 5pm so hard to get there   Name of the Claimant ? Excel Parking claimants Solicitors: BW Legal   Date of issue – don't have on me but it was in Sept 2018 (previous claim from 2017 resurrected) * Court date is 17th Dec -Next Tue   Date of issue   ^^^^^ NOTE : WHEN CALCULATING THE TIMELINE - PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DATE ON THE CLAIMFORM IS ONE IN THE COUNT [example: Issue date 01.03.2014 + 19 days (5 days for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 19.03.2014 + 14 days to submit defence = 02.04.2014] = 33 days in total   What is the claim for – PCN Not displaying a valid ticket for the private car park 468 Bury New Road, Prestwich I have copied their WS below with map location, signs, etc     **IMPORTANT** WE NEED TO SEE THE FULL POC MINUS YOUR PERS DETAILS>> NOT AN ABRIDGED VERSION**THIS MUST INCLUDE THE LOCATION   What is the value of the claim? original ticket was £100 plus additional fees so its at £255   Has the claim been issued by the Private parking Company or was the PCN assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim ? Original Excel Parking   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? Not sure what this is?     I WILL TRY TO ATTACH THEIR WS - having trouble Do I just scan it in and attach it?   In the mean time my outline defence is:   No locus standi as have not produce a signed contract Under CPR 31.14 that the claim be struck out on the grounds of no locus   *I requested the contract and they did not provide it initially, however in their WS they have produced a signed contract from the pension fund who own the land    I was not the driver of the car. I have no evidence of the driver's identity. This dates back many years (2015) and difficult to remember who could have been driving  *their WS states I only said I was not the driver at a late stage and when filing an amended defence, and appears I developed a defence to avoid liability. I have stated this from the start.  Also that I alleged no correspondence, and the onus is on the driver to update DVLA. I did update DVLA, but I moved numerous times due to domestic abuse. This was in my set aside Also question how I would be able to comment on the signs if not the driver of the vehicle, as she would not have first hand knowledge, therefore it is the claimants position that she is being disingenuous I put Excel to strict proof that any contract can exist  *Their WS states it falls foul of the unfair terms in consumer contracts regulations 1999(UTCCR 1999). Claims the regulations don't apply? keeper of the vehicle - as the protocols of the POFA have not been followed so no keeper liability created. DVLA data was supplied for the single strict purpose of enquiring who was driving, not for bringing a case against me years later  Signage not a transparent contract insufficient in terms of their distribution  wording and lighting hence incapable of binding the driver, which distinguishes this case from the ParkingEye Ltd v. Beavis case  Sporadic and illegible charge not prominent nor large lettering site/entrance signage breach of the BPA Code of Practice. The entrance sign is on the left side so not the drivers side. The signs have no mention of any debt collection additional charge  The signage was not lit and not transparent contrary to the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.  The entrance sign refers to the terms and conditions on another sign The signs did not have planning permission under the Town and County planning. I have an email stating there was no planning permission from the council. * Their WS says they do not need planning permission by being an approved operator of the trade association, and it is not for the county court to determine planning permission.   The signs do not fall under deemed consent.    * Their WS states my defence appears to be cut and pasted from websites relating to parking whose aim is to assist motorists on contesting PCN's. Large portions are non sensical and irrelevant to the claim   Unacceptable as the defendant has signed a statement of truth whilst clearly not being the defendants knowledge   THANKS FOR YOUR HELP x   You mention I can get it struck out as they haven't sent me a bundle? They have sent me their WS online, no hard copies but I'd prefer not to go if possible  
    • Redacted and merged to one PDF   Attached is my witness statement and supporting evidence that I am going to give to the court, the court have said they will not even look at it until the day of the hearing, so I am OK to send it to them only a few days before the hearing.    Do you think it is worth me sending this to BW Legal, in the hope they will drop the case before it goes to court? Or am I better not showing my hand to them, so they cannot amend their evidence based on what I have stated?   If anyone would be kind enough to read through my statement and give me their thoughts, that would be very much appreciated.  ilovepdf_merged.pdf

i started work as a bus driver in may last year. 3 months ago, i was involved in an accident where i received an injury to my neck. i have been off work ever since with this problem. as the accident was at work, they asked me to visit the company doctor which i did. he was insistent that i was fit to work due to the fact that i had not gone to my doctor for stronger pain relief medication. i was invited to a meeting with the operations manager. she wanted to know exactly when i was going to return to work. i was unable to answer this because i knew that i wasn't fit or safe enough to do my job, and i was still in pain when i tried to turn my head. she asked if i could be bus cleaning instead, but i thought this an unsuitable alternative role due to having to clamber under seats etc to clear away litter. she said she had no option but to give me 7 days notice to terminate my employment, even though i was still on the sick. to be honest, i was happy with that arrangement as it released the stress and pressure to return to work and i could find alternative employment once i had made a full recovery. now this is where the problem lies. i received an invoice from them wanting £1270 for what they claim is owed on an indemnity bond. the next section says "less recovery of wages. please refer to your last wage slip for more details. i had no idea what this was about until my payslip arrived yesterday. on my last pay slip, they have paid me my outstanding ssp, all my holiday pay, and all my lieu days payments totaling £649. then in the deductions side, they have taken off my usual deductions for tax & NI plus £453 for what they call "leaver bond". i have no idea what that is. so now what i have after all the deductions is a weekly wage of just £19. i'm not bothered about losing the job but can they really take money from my wages like this? is there anything i can do about the "invoice" they've sent me?

Did Stagecoach pay for any training for you?


In particular: did you start already holding a driver CPC (or licence class D)?


If not, they may have a contractual term to limit the risk that they pay for driver training and then have drivers leave soon, having the benefit of that training at Stagecoach’s expense.

Have you checked your contract of employment?
