VCS PCN Claimform - no stopping - Southend Airport

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

hoping someone can help... 

 

I received a PCN for stopping to ask where to park for a pickup, so only stopped for a few seconds.

 

I have been ignoring the letters they have been sending.

 

They have now sent the attached claim form.

 

Should I now appeal? 
 

 

please answer the following questions.

 

1 Date of the infringement - 19/07/19

 

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]

[scan up BOTHSIDES as ONE  PDF- follow the upload guide] 26/07/19

 

3 Date received - not sure

 

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] N

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?

yes

 

6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] N

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] N/A

 

7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services

 

8. Where exactly - Southend Airport 

 

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. IAS

 

There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure,

please check HERE

 

If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here

 

copy the windscreen or ANPR section to your thread and answer the questions...

……....

in either case scan up bothsides of any letters/tickets in or appeals made out to ONE MULTIPAGE  PDF ONLY

did you get a letter before action? if so when?

 

acknowledge the claim, ideally online via the govt moneyclaim site, You will need a govt gateway username and password. Once you have ack'd you have  a total of 33 days to submit a defence. this only needs to be an outline of what you will be saying if it gets to court.

 

These no stopping claims don't get there, they are not a breach of a parking contract, they are prohibitive in nature, ignore the 10 minute grace period and they are also trumped by the airport byelaws. VCS know all of this but they are crooks and are using the court system to coerce you into paying rather than trying to enforce a real debt. Once you have settled into your position they drop the claim but that wont be yet, they need to know your intentions.

 

95% of peopel have paid them by the time they have to write somehting for court so even thouth they are dishonest it is a numbers  game for them

2.The defendants vehicle *******, was identified in the Southend Airport o 19/07/19 in breach of the advertised terms and conditions, namely stopping in a zone where stopping is prohibited. At all material times the Defendant was the registered keeper and/or driver.

 

3.The terms and conditions upon entering private land was clearly displayed at the entrance and in prominent locations. The sign was the offer hereby entering into a contract by conduct. The signs specifically detail the terms and conditions and the consequences of failure to comply, namely a parking charge notice will be issued, and the defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability.

 

4.The Claimant seeks the recovery of the parking charge notice, contractual costs and interests.

No, So the car is registered in my brothers name and he has since moved house. He has received 2 previous letters, one for the original fine and then a subsequent one for the increase after 14 days.

Hi DX00uk,

 

My brother never received the letter of claim, but this maybe because he moved house and the letter never got forwarded to him. 

 

So I am going to acknowledge the claim via the govt moneyclaim site. In terms of the defence what should I say? 

 

ericsbrother,

 

As per the above I never received the letter of claim. 

 

Thanks both for your help.

completed the MCOL, just need to complete the defence. Is there anything I should and shouldn't say in here? 

 

With the CPR 31.14, do I send it to the address I have for them and get it signed for? 

 

Thanks

The defendant will have to take on the claim himself.  VCS are suing him, not you.


We could do with some help from you.

Am I right in thinking your brother is the keeper of the vehicle, and so VCS are suing him - but you were driving on the day?  In your first post you wrote "I received a PCN" but did you really mean your brother did?

 

if so, you can prepare the paperwork in his name if you want, and a decent defence later on will probably lead Simple Simon of VCS to wet himself and give in (if you look through the forum, there are very recent examples of this).

 

However, in the unlikely event that VCS go all the way to court, it will be your brother appearing, so it'd be a good idea if he too started to learn the legal procedure and how to beat these fleecers.

Correct, my brother is the keeper and so VCS are suing him. 

 

I've submitted the AOS in my name now and I can't change it... Could this be an issue?

With the CPR 31.14 do I provide my new address and use my name? Or should I use my Brothers name and his old address as he is the defendant? 
 

Is it the defence you want me to post here?

you will have to ask the court to change it as you are not being sued so have nothing to do with the matter. You have no locus standi

 

If they are smart they may twig this and go for a summary judgement.

It is commendable that you help your brother out but you cant atkethe matter over. If you were driving you can get your brother to state this and see if they want to waste money starting all over agin by suing you but they wont, they will rely on keeper liability even though they havent created one.

 

as for CPR again your brother's job or at least in his name and address

So my brother has received a letter from the court saying the claim has be returned as it is invalid because it has been signed by a third party. Please see attached.

 

My Brother has only just received this letter as he has moved house and the mail redirect is slow. The address on the letter is 11th Dec and the original claim form was 2nd December. He is going to submit the claim form again tomorrow via mail but I presume this is too late, am I right? 
 

Thanks ,

I am going to start the defence response for him now, is there any links to help with this?

can he not just do MCOL?

has he tried?

 

the defence will be the std 2- 5 line one with regard to the land being covered by airport byelaws that trump everything and those cannot be not enforced by anyone other than the airport themselves.

plenty of no stopping threads here already.

Your support for your brother is commendable, but I think you have to consider him taking over this case as if it gets to court he will have to understand the legal arguments and take on the fleecers - you can't do it for him.  He's being sued, not you.  You've already made the basic mistake of sending documents to the court in the name of an unconnected third party.

 

Hopefully VCS will wet themselves and run away after the defence, but that's not guaranteed, better to prepare too much than too little.

DX because I have already logged in and submitted the MCOL it won’t let him login. 
 

he has emailed the court to see if they can make the changes. Hopefully it’s not too late.

 

I will login and upload the defence as required on the 3rd Jan.

 

I have looked through lots of posts but can’t seem to find a defence that I can use as a guide, probably me not searching for the right threads.
