CEL and CCBC Claim Form

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone, 


My partner works for our local council and was on an official visit to a client who was staying in a hotel at the time. My partner had visited this individual 2 or 3 times and spoken to the receptionist in the hotel in regards to her parking in the car park as she was on official business for the council. She was allowed to park there with no issues. 


A few weeks later roughly, she parked there again to visit the same client, but the receptionist wasn't present, so she could not inform anyone that she was parking there on a visit. 


She then got an ANPR parking ticket from Civil Enforcement LTD. She ignored the letters as it was a private car park and the hotel in question knew her registration / have it on record that she had visited several times before. Numerous letters came from CEL, we ignored them all. 


Today a letter arrived (Claim Form) from the County Court Business Centre in Northampton with particulars about the amount due. It has a claim number, issue date, and several pieces of paper with one of them being a defence and counterclaim form.


Obviously we feel this is absolutely ridiculous considering she was there on an official visit representing the local council (I cannot reveal any more information as it's sensitive and confidential) but now we are facing this huge issue and now we do not know where to turn. The issue date was the 26th July (Monday). 


We want to see if we/she has any leg to stand on and if because she was there for work and nobody was at the desk despite her being there several times before is going to help with the case. We also do not know what to do now and would appreciate any advice. 


Thank you in advance for your help.

It is a shame that you did not contact the hotel straight away to have their speculative invoice cancelled.  Even now it may not be too late to try since the hotel may well agree that  the car was allowed to be there.

Yes, it was a mistake not to get on to the hotel before and it was a mistake to ignore the Letter Before Action which the fleecers will have sent.


Anyway, we've all made mistakes here, the point is to fight back now.


Please fill in the sticky dx posted, it's vital we have the details so you don't miss the deadline to file your defence.

We could do with some help from you.
