CEL 2017 ANPR PCN - Burger King, West Forest Gate, Wokingham, RG40 2AT - First contact 32 months since 'breach of terms'


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Today I've received a 'LETTER BEFORE ACTION - CLAIM FOR DEBT' from Civil Enforcement Limited for a supposed breach of parking 32 months ago. They haven't provided me any evidence to my address which I've lived at and been registered to for the past 24 months. 

 

They have sent me a form to reply to which is asking for name, address, contact number, email and to comment whether I owe the debt, i am getting debt advice and another section where i can ask them for further documents or information. 

 

At this stage I cannot confirm that I had parked at this premises. Being a Burger King I have visited with the children in the past when I lived in Wokingham.

 

Seeking advice of next steps please?

04/12/2017

 

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

send them a single letter telling them that you deny that you were involved and that you won't be paying anything that you will see them in court.

Send them a second letter separate containing an sar

 

Keep the first letter short. Minimum narrative

Thank you for your prompt response. Do you have reference to the SAR document template? Thank you!

 

But also, if I ask for a DSAR, I think need to provide them with my contact details or shall I just input my address which they posted to?

  • dx100uk changed the title to CEL 2017 ANPR PCN - Burger King, West Forest Gate, Wokingham, RG40 2AT - First contact 32 months since 'breach of terms'

pers i'd send them an ericsbrother snotty insulting letter in many like threads here already.

 

and yes an SAR. but do that separate. click SAR

 

you are lucky they sent the PAPLOC to your present address.

their typical game is to send everything to your old address

and attain a backdoor CCJ.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

How's this?


To whom it concerns, I am in receipt of your letter dated the 3rd August 2020 and have noted its contents.

 

You state that I should consider this to be a letter before action. Unfortunately for you I cannot accept this shoddily thrown together piece of tripe to be a LBA as it fails miserably to come anywhere near an LBA as required under the revised Civil Procedure Regulations and so would expect a court to summarily dismiss any claim later made by you or your client on that basis.

  

So, to make sure that there is no misunderstanding, I deny that any monies are owed to Civil Enforcement Limited by myself. The same applies to the inflated amount of the claim, the POFA and contract law are very clear on this point and again plenty of examples of dismissed claims are in the public domain.

 

Your fondness for misquoting the decision of PE v Beavis makes it look like you have never read the full judgement but like the other ‘rent a threat’ see it as a panacea for justifying any old codswallop you care to trot out.

 

It’s not wise or in the interests of Civil Enforcement Limited to continue with this matter as they have no cause for action, and I shall seek a full cost recovery order for any civil claim made under the unreasonableness criteria.

Good grief, you're quick!

 

Looks good to me.  Just cut out the little bit "or your client" as the original letter was to solicitors.  Address it to "Dear Ashley".  Personally I would add at the end of your first line "Note that my new address is xxxxx" just to make absolutely sure they don't issue a court claim to your old address.  Presumably you didn't get the initial rubbish they sent out due to moving.

 

Both for this letter and the SAR get free Certificates of Posting from the post office. 

We could do with some help from you.

Hehehe, i dont like to sit on things!!!

So I've made the changes you suggested.

 

On another forum, they advised emailing all of this to not waste any further of my time.

Do you have any objections to emailing this letter and the DSAR?

I know it's a hell of a long time ago, but do you still have proof of payment to Burger King on bank statements?  If so, as well as the snotty letter and the SAR, it might still be worth writing to Burger King (CEO level) pointing out that you were a genuine customer and you demand they tell CEL to cancel.   You went there with your kids and didn't expect demands for £160 (or however much it is) as a result of the lot of you spending money there.  

 

The problem with e-mail is that, if the matter ever did come to court, they could e-mail you their documentation one minute before the deadline and catch you out.  That's why we always recommend snail mail with the fleecers so they can't do that.

 

By all means e-mail Burger King though.

Highly unlikely that I'd have any trace of this i've been with 3 banks since then and no doubt i would have used cash and not kept a simple BK receipt!

you need to edit that response as it was sent to a bunch of lawyers acting as debt collectors. so drop the bit about rentathreats.

I would add the salutation

Dear Ashley,

it is no use trying to hide, we all know it is you writing this garbage.....

 

 

reason for thi is that a person well known in parking world isnt listed as having a controlling interest in the company contrary to Company Law

The SAR reply should include the initial letters they sent you, telling you what you did "wrong".

 

Hopefully the snotty letter will produce a deafening silence from them.

keep any documents or evidence though in case Ashley is daft enough to send a Claimform next year when he thinks you have forgotten about it.

no at this stage you should be finding the original planning permission granted by the council that wont say 1hrs free parking

it will be 2 or 3 hrs.

and no-one can change that.

also check CEL have been granted planning permission for their signs, anpr cameras and the poles both are on too.

they wont!!

 

 

get up on the relevant councils webportal and get the info.

Ok, upon a postcode search and location search 'burger king' and 'west forest gate' on the councils website there is nothing in relation to CEL or any parking planning applications. I will contact the council.
