I was under the impression they could no longer get a CCJ once the debt become statute barred?
I don't think the company in February are going to bother. The one from 2015 I am going to pay off so I won't have to worry about a CCJ. I guess the third one could be a concern.
dx100uk says: "forget anything to do with pofa and popla and court ..small immaterial fry to a court."
Does that mean that the failure of the operator to meet the PoFA time window to pursue the Keeper is irrelevant? Surely that is necessary in order for the Court to even consider Keeper liability?
I will try again to rescan the PCN, but the initial file size was too large, and when I reduced it, it was too blurry. I have some photos of the signs too. I'll try later today
Many thanks to you all for taking an interest
I think that you should list out the alternative modes of transport and their costs and if it eventually turns out that a hire car is the best alternative then it may be possible that this could be considered to be a necessary expense.
however, you would also have to justify the need for transport. Do you need it for work? Do you need to take kids to school?
If they do send ar tey a claim the POC will probably aver that the keeper is driver, and in any WS trot out Elliott v Loake (criminal so not applicable to civil claims) and CPS v AJH Films, ( Employer employee relationship so again inapplicable) both these have been discredited in court in parking claims, a research on Parking Prankster's blog is very useful, to prepare ammunition if they are silly.
Could point out to Lidl that their parking Cowboy's 90 minute limit could breach the Equalities Act 2010, as someone in your mother's position will need considerably more time than that allowed, also the Planning permission might have stipu;ations about minimum parking time, usually double that allowed say 3 hours. Think ericsbrother will have some ideas here.
