    • All of the above but I don't think their default is going to hurt your mortgage application.
    • Unless you have already sent it – which I don't think it's clear – how about this as an alternative:    
    • You mention covid holiday in your title.. did you have one and missed or deferred payments?   tell us the story please though a mortgage company rarely refuses for one default.there must be another reason   DX
    • Vodafone have a reputation for doing this although it hasn't happened for a while. There an appalling company and I think they are the most complained about company and have been find quite a lot of money in the past by the so-called regulator. Frankly I thought that they had started to sort themselves out. Sent them an SAR. They may try to impose some kind of obstacle such as a special former something or other to fill in. This is unlawful as long as they have no reason to be dissatisfied with your identity details. Separately – because they are capable of understanding to issues in the same letter – separately send them a letter of complaint and ask them what's going on. You might also want to try and deal with this on the telephone – but if you do then read our customer services guide first and implement the advice there because anything that is said on the telephone could be of use. However, don't expect this to go away quickly. They are incompetent and once they make a mistake they tend to dig themselves in rather than dig themselves out. Sent they SAR – and separately the letter of complaint.
    • Nobody here can say for sure whether you should challenge this penalty or just pay it because nobody knows if a court would consider your reason(s) for not wearing a mask a reasonable excuse or not.   But... my view would be that if you can get a letter from your doctor saying that because of your medical conditions (acne and anxiety) that wearing a mask causes you such distress (and/or discomfort and/or pain) that you have a medically based reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask, then that should do it for you - in my view.   You can then use that letter to challenge the police as to the validity of the fixed penalty, and if they don't back down you can let it go to court - if you want to do that.  I would expect the court to accept your doctor's letter at face value and quash the penalty - but nothing is certain!   Have you given your doctor/your practice notice of what you want and why you need it?  Have you explained that you have already received a fixed penalty for not wearing a mask, that you want to challenge it and that you need a letter explaining your reasonable excuse for not wearing a mask so that this does not happen again?  At my GP surgery I could either have phoned them up to explain all this in advance, or emailed them explaining it.  It might not be a good idea just to turn up for an appointment without letting the GP know in advance why you are there.   If your GP won't give you a "reasonable excuse" letter - and they may refuse to do so - then you need to think again.   First thing to consider if they don't is that you need to decide if you really have a reasonable excuse or not.  If you still think you do, then you need to decide if you want to challenge the penalty further or if you just want to pay it.  But if you do that, what happens next time* you are caught without a mask?  If you don't think you have a reasonable excuse, then you'd better start wearing a mask.   *If you can't get a GP's letter I have a few other thoughts but will have to post those later - I'm just going out.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

NCP/BW ANPR PCN Claimform Bought ticket but threw it away


Recommended Posts

My wife has received PCN from this same car park.

She bought a ticket at the time but had thrown it away by the time she received the PCN as there was a fortnights holiday in the interim.  

 

Please can anyone advise the best way to use this forum for advice on this one?

We have requested a PDT machine record of payments made that day, but this has not been forthcoming.

She now has a claim form from County Court Business Centre and I would be most grateful of any advice in the best way to present her defence. 

Thank you in advance.

Just because the receipt has been thrown away doesn't invalidate the payment. Besides there are several other hurdles that the crooks who run hte car park have to overcome before they can successfully win in Court-even if your wife hadn't paid at all.

As a start please complete the questions on post 2 and then we can begin pinting out where they have gone wrong already.

Yes the sticky will then give us the what why's and wherefore of their likely groundless claim, but don't delay as you must acknowledge the Claimform within a strict timescale or they win by default.

Hello all,

This is my first thread, so I hope I am following protocol.

My wife parked in an NCP car park late last year. It is controlled by ANPR and she bought a ticket and displayed it on the dashboard. We were away for Christmas and on our return discovered a PCN from NCP waiting for us. I can supply the dates but I do not know how much information of the case I should disclose here at this stage.

 

She wrote back to NCP saying she had bought a ticket and saying 'We have no record of any payment being made against your vehicle registration number'. She was driving our daughter's car so it is entirely possible that she entered her own registration number by mistake.

 

Having read a number of threads here and elsewhere, I entered an SAR on the NCP website asking for photos, all correspondence, a PDT machine record from that day of payment made, and all data that they intend to rely on. This has been received with the conspicuous absence of the PDT machine record.

 

I have read that entering an incorrect number is not a breach of contract, and I think this is our strongest defence, but I would really appreciate any comments that will help in submitting my wife's defence which is due next week.

 

Thanks in advance, 

Rovarp

Hi.

 

You say you need to submit a defence, but have you had a court claim for this?

 

In the first instance, please could you let us have the information requested in the forum sticky so we can advise you?

 

 

We don't necessarily go about things the way that other forums do, so we wouldn't have advised sending an SAR or for your wife to admit that she was driving, but that isn't terminal. We'll take it a step at a time.

I am being a bit thick here perhaps but if your wife parked her daughter's car there then the PCN should have gone to your daughter if no payment was made. And how did the PCN get to your wife if her car wasn't there? 

 

Oh I have forgotten that your daughter could have her car registered at your home address but still wouldn't explain the PCN going to your wife.

 

And have you asked NCP to check if your daughter's reg no. was paid for?

 

Also did NCP's takings for that day tally with the number of cars that parked there that day.

You can tell them that they will be put to strict proof of this since it is a vital piece of evidence  in their claim.

Both cars are registered to me, so original PCN was in my name.

My wife in her appeal said she was driving and she has received all subsequent correspondence.

(We now know this was a huge error).

 

I am sure if we had the list of registrations for the day, we could identify the purchase but that is not forthcoming.

I did request the PDT machine record of payments made that day in the SAR.

 It's just if this is the main thrust of the defence and how to present it if it is.

its not for you to prove their ANPR system is pants , leave that for later.

 

reg mistakes are being removed as an allowable reasons these fleecers can issue speculative invoices soon, so it should be easy.

They will be trying to get as many wrong reg no claims in before it is changed and becomes law that its not a reason to claim. the court process is used as a frightener to push for a payment often not legally due.

That would be a defended claim as being de minimis it wouldn't stand up to scrutiny.  Only way they would geta judgment is a default, as undefended, or a back door default to old address.

They cannot show you their PDT record for that day since that would breach the GDPR of every other motorist.

You could explain that your wife may have inputted one of several reg. nos. and see if they will look at that.

 

Of course she may have got one of the letters wrong as well as the actual car that she was driving which would encourage the crooks to keep pursing. They will still need strict proof that she didn't pay. Like a picture of the windscreen without a ticket showing.
