Hey all,

 

This morning I've received a claim form from the county court business center. I ignore previous letters as per the general advise, so I was not expecting a letter for a CCJ.

Last year, I over staying the allowed parking time in the Wickes car park in Slough, I was genuinely in Wickes buying all the supplies to build a raised deck in my garden, this included waiting on Wickes staff to a crates of decking - I don't have the receipt but I do have a bank statement of spending over £500 that day in a single transaction.

It seems like the courts ruled that over staying can be charged if it's a fair charge, should I just pay up, or fight this in court? If I pay now, do I still have a CCJ against my name?

I almost certainly do not have any previous letters, I think I got 2 and threw them out. The amount claimed is £173.40 + £35 court fee + £50 legal fees, totaling £258.40

Don't be misled by the bilge they quote on their invoices.

They always quote Beavis as a scare tactic.

The fleecers have to jump through numerous hoops to make their invoices stick.

They invariably come unstuck.

In the meantime, it may be fruitful to contact Wickes and explain what's going on.

Point out the circumstances you've already outlined in your first post (waiting for loading at the store and £500 spend) and ask them if they would kindly call off their dogs.

To obtain all the paperwork G24 have sent, you'll need to SAR them.

It'll be useful to have anyway...

I've spoken to Wickes who have said they're going to call G24 and tell them to drop it and will call me back in 24-72 hours.

I guess it's safe to wait 3 days before doing anything else right?

Well done for getting on to Wickes so quickly.

I calculate the deadline for Acknowledgement of Service as 24 July, so yes it's safe to wait three days ...

... but don't wait any longer than that, you can be sure that although Wickes will try to do the right thing the fleecers will do their damnedest not to comply.

You say that the general advice has been to ignore.

Can you tell us where that advice is? Post a link

im a bit puzzled you did not get a letter of claim about a month or so before this claimform arrived.

have you moved since the parking event or is the Registered keeper of the cars V5C not at your current address? or WHY?

or did you get it and threw it out?

nowhere do we say ignore a letter of claim....

sorry, I meant I think I received the PCNs and ignore those, not the letter of claim, that was received this morning, and I acted immediately,

this letters of claim was the first thing I've received since the original PCN last year, and a follow up letter reminding me to pay.

I purchased my first home 2 years ago, before this incident, and DVLA was notified immediately, so no chance of letters being directed to older addresses

no a court claimform is not a letter of claim ...

a letter of claim (entitled so by its title) from bw legal would (should) have been sent better than 30 days before the court claimform pack sent from the northants bulk court ...not bw legal

the letter of claim from BW would have also contained a questionnaire to fill in and a I&E sheet to fill out....giving 30 days reply notice before they can request a court claim is raised by northants bulk.

there are browny points here for you if they did not send one. if they did and you binned it...so be it.

This is where a SAR could be useful. They have to send you copies of all correspondence... so if they actually forgot to send the paploc...

Good idea!

Hopefully Wickes will come up trumps, but it's always a good idea to plan ahead.

Yep.  Someone who will remain nameless 😉 with, er, too much time on his hands, got annoyed a few months back and totted up the results of court hearings between Caggers and VCS during the previous two years.  The win rate was 85%.

Well the 72 hours are up.  Has this been resolved?

I'm afraid we've seen this many times, a company like Wickes are eager to help but the fleecers do nothing to cooperate.  Which leaves the motorist thinking the matter has been settled - but it has not.

Hey all,

I meant to post this on Friday, but time got away from me, so apologies there.

Wickes called me back, and have confirmation that case is now closed and I should be getting a letter in the post soon to confirm this.

Should I allow 3-5 days for the letter, and if not either call the number on the claim form to confirm it's at least withdrawn as far as they see, or actually reply to form?

You should acknowledge service as dx pointed out in post 6.  Do it tomorrow.

It costs you nothing, takes up 10 minutes of your time, and means you have 33 days from the issue of the claim form to file a defence rather than just 19 days.  It's a common sense move to protect yourself.

Until you have proper written proof from the horse's mouth that the claim has been withdrawn you need to act as if it's active.  We've seen motorists conned this way before.
