VCS Spycar PCN Claimform - no stopping JLA Liverpool Airport


Recommended Posts

OK, well done.

 

However, I agree with dx, VCS are one of the most crooked of the PPCs and are quite capable of sending court papers to you old address.  You need to send them a further, short letter -

 

Dear Simple Simon,

 

Re: PCN XXXXX

 

would you please note that I no longer live at XXXXX and now reside at XXXXX.

 

Send if off 2nd class with a free Certificate of Posting from the post office.  Write you name at the bottom but don't sign.

It is a shame that you revealed you were the driver as their NTK was not compliant with PoFA so that would have prevented them from transferring the liability of the debt from the driver to the keeper.

 

As you admitted you were the driver they can pursue you as the driver. All is not lost- only the other day a motorist had a similar experience to yours-a breakdown on an airport. At the last moment they cancelled the case.

you have the 30 days, they then must investigate for 30 days before they can issue a court claim IF IF IF they ever do.

 

its written in the pre action protocol.

they must give you 30 days to respond to the LOC.

then when/if you reply, they must wait a further 30 days from your reply date.

Hello everyone, 

Just a little update. I have sent another SAR request yesterday, this time to DBCL.

They have put my case on hold for 30 days (until 4 dec). 

Today I have received response :

"Our client has informed us that they sent over their data to yourself on 28 October 2021, however, please find attached the evidence and the data we hold."

However I cant find my snotty letter to VCS among SAR received through DBCL. 

 

Should I need to wait another 30 days?

Hello everyone.

 

So almost 30 days passed since last LBC. I am trying to send reply. here is the draft

 

Addres

Date xxxxxxx
 
Your Reference No. xxxxxxxxxx

With regards your letter date xxxxxx

Dear Elms Legal,

with reference to your speculative invoice Ref xxxxxxxx

Yet another Letter Before Claim!  Thanks!  A final final final final final final chance to pay.  As I told your client, VCS, when I received theirs sent on xxxxxxx, so you seem to think I owe them money?

    There is absolutely no intention of contributing to what must almost certainly be your healthy income by paying the above without substance  VCS claim.

    You know and I know and now you know that I know all the reasons why VCS airport claims are utter pants.

    How many times have you been hammered in court on airport claims?  Want another one?  Then fine, I will go for an unreasonable costs order under CPR 27.14(2)(g) and then spend it all on a foreign holiday after all borders reopen while laughing at your expense.

I look forward to your deafening silence.

Kind regards,

It just needs to be tweaked as it's going to Elms, not VCS.  So -

 

How many times has your client Simple Simon been hammered in court on airport claims?  Does he want another one?  Then fine, I will go for an unreasonable costs order under CPR 27.14(2)(g) and then spend it all on a foreign holiday after all borders reopen while laughing at your and your client's expense.

 

All the rest is fine.  Write at the bottom

I would like to fill defence straight away. Or should I wait?

Here is the draft

2.  It is denied that the Defendant breached any terms and conditions set on private land.

 

3.  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.

1.  It is admitted that Defendant is the recorded keeper of xxxxxxx

 

2.   As held by the Upper Tax Tribunal in Vehicle Control Services Limited v HMRC [2012] UKUT 129 (TCC), any contract requires offer and acceptance.  The Claimant was only contracted to provide car park management services and is not capable of entering into a contract with the Defendant on its own account, as the car park is owned by and the terms of entry set by the landowner.  Accordingly, it is denied that the Claimant has authority to bring this claim.  The proper claimant is the landowner

 

3.  It is denied that the Defendant breached any terms and conditions set on private land.

 

4.  It is denied that the Defendant entered into a contract with the Claimant, or broke any such contract.

 

5.  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.

Well done.

 

Fellow Site Team member Andyorch has recently pointed out how these disgraceful companies wait for years to sue so they can add more interest. 

 

So change your (5) to (6), and add a new (5) -

 

5.  The Defendant's invoice was issued in early April 2018 and it is unreasonable for the Defendant to delay litigation for nearly four years and to claim 8% interest for that whole period.

 

As dx says, don't file this early.  Obviously don't file at the very last minute in case MCOL is down.  A couple of days before the deadline is fine.
