Ive just read  through the whole thread and i see from day one you made a fatal mistake by replying to them , then almost sent a paploc reply shooting yourself in the foot again. Now you rush again to do something without asking 1st and tick contest jurisdiction.

 

can i politely suggest you dont now do anything without 1st checking here ? As you are entering into very dangerous waters against someone that will exploit you at the drop of a hat. 

 

can you post up the ntk please as we never got to see it? We have you appeal but not the org ntk

 

Thanks

Hi again,

 

Apologies for rushing, I really appreciate the advice so i will slow down from here on out. Am I not right in feeling confident that they cannot win this case however? They have not complied with POFA, and I was not the driver, so how can the court allow them to hold me liable?

 

As for the POC, the date in breach was 06/10/2020.

 

I have attached the original NTK below.

 

Thank you again for all the help!

Hi,

 

I have prepared a CPR 31:14 request which I have attached if you could check that I am on the right track/if i should include anything else?

 

Also, Does a CPR 31 request need me to pay them for costs?

 

Kind regards

Only if disclosing the requested documents puts them to cost....which invariably never happens.

Hi everyone,

 

the CPr request has been posted. Should I start preparing my defence now, or is there anything else I should do first?

 

As for defence, is this sufficient? Or should i also include breach of POFA, KADOE, DPA etc...?

 

1.  The Defendant is the registered keeper of *****

2.  The signage is prohibitive in nature and not a genuine offer of a contract for consideration. 

3.  In any case it is denied that the Claimant entered into a contract with the Defendant. 

4.  The Particulars of Claim is denied in its entirety.  It is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief at all.

 

Thank you!

Thank you dx,

 

My deadline for submitting defence is 4pm friday the 3/9/21.

 

I will look to file my defence on MCOL a few days before that date.

 

Do you think I should add anything else to the defence?

 

I feel like the basis of my argument is that they haven't complied with POFA, should I include this?

 

Kind regards

Hi again everyone,

 

I have now received another letter from the court which is a notice of allocation to the small claims track (hearing).

 

Please find the copy attached with personal information redacted. 

 

It is asking for me to submit any documents on which I intend to rely on in court, which documents should I send? Or is it likely that VCS will not continue with the claim?

 

Kind regards, and thank you very much in advance!

You do not agree to the claim being dealt with on the papers alone.  Two reasons.

 

Firstly, Simon could tell any old lie and you'd have no way of countering it.

 

Secondly, you cost VCS money.  Although they have a litigation department, their bods never appear in court - which may or may not be connected with VCS's representative being threatened with imprisonment by the judge in a famous case - so have to fork out money for a solicitor to represent them.  Now & again they discontinue a case rather than spending this money. 

We could do with some help from you.

Hi everyone,

 

I have had a busy christmas but have just managed to draft up my witness statement!

 

I need to deliver it by the 7th January so I don't have too much time, but if anyone is free could you have a look at it, and let me know if im on the right track?

 

I just need to include all of the appendix documents but everything else is finished.

 

Please find attached.

 

Kind regards

At a first glance that looks great work.

 

One slight gripe is that in (4) you mention "the illegality of their claim".  It's not illegal.  Change it to "the unlawfulness of their claim".

 

I'll have a proper read tomorrow.

 

Have VCS sent you their WS?

What you've written is excellent, but if we can fine tune it so much the better.

 

In (22) and (23) you did actually receive these two letters, right?  Just they are not mentioned in your thread.

 

Realistically the judge won't throw out the claim due to the Unicorn Food Tax or a breach of the CoP, so really your only argument is POFA.  It's a very strong argument but if the judge doesn't accept it then you're scuppered.

 

I think it would be better to include other arguments.  The judge only has to agree with one to chuck Simon in the bin.

 

So after (21) stick in another section about Locus Standi, reiterate what you wrote in (5), say that VCS are not the landowner and have no right to bring the claim.

 

Immediately after put in another part about planning permission, reiterate (5) and state you do not believe VCS have PP which is a criminal offence and means a contract couldn't be formed.

 

I would put the stuff about the Unicorn Food Tax at the end.  So the order would be

   current 1-21

   locus standi

   planning permission

   current 30-34

   current 22-29

   current 35-end.

 

You haven't told us if you've received VCS's WS yet?

We could do with some help from you.

Looks coherent using FTM Daves suggestions  but a sight of VCS WS would be very useful for any tweaking.

Hi FTMDave, 

 

Thank you so much for looking at it for me!

 

I did indeed receive both of those letters, and I will include them in the appendix of the WS.

 

I have tweeked my WS and added another section as you suggested, please find attached.

 

I have not yet received anything from VCS.

 

Kind regards

Yes always suspicious when Simon doesn't pass on WS until last possible minute, Of course if you don't have it by the submission deadline you can go to the court and tell them so.
