    Default County Court Claim Form UKPC/Gladstone Solicitors

    Hi,

    I received a parking ticket and I was advised to ignore all the letters due to being parked on private land and this was more like an invoice, and now I have received a County Court Claim form (17/11/2017) of which I am going to defend as I have come this far....

    So advise please on how I build a defence, I know there are many threads and links on here to help me, there are so many...

    I really am unsure where I start, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there a template I could use?

    Thanks Sheila

    You have 33 days from the date of issue of the claim form to send your defence to the court if you have acknowledged the claim so what's the hurry. You have acknowledged haven't you?

    How can anyone help you when you have provided absolutely no details about the incident. What is the driver alleged to have done, has the identity of the driver been revealed, are there photos of the signs?

    Obviously I just want to get this sorted out, I got a parking ticket well if it is one, I was parked at a pay and display at a parade of shops and is monitored by UKPC, I didn't have a ticket. I ignored all the letters as I was informed that this was just an invoice due to it being privately owned land? Yes they got my details from the DVLA and have been writing to me for months, and I now find myself in this position. There are signs at the entrance of the car park saying it is monitored but these may have been put up recently, I don't know whether they were there when I got the ticket back in May. What else would you like to know?

    Claimant: UK Car Park Management Limited
    Address for sending documents and payments: Gladstones Solicitors
    Issue Date: 17 November 2017
    Particulars of Claim: The driver of the vehicle ******* (the "Vehicle") incurred the parking charge(s) on 23/05/2016 for breaching the terms of parking on the land at Oakmede Place, Terrace Road South, Binfield, Berkshire. RG42 4JF.
    The Defendant was driving the vehicle and/or is the Keeper of the vehicle. AND THE CLAIMANT CLAIMS £160 for Parking Charges/Damages and indemnity costs if applicable, together with interest of £18.04 pursuant to s69 of the County Court Act 1984 at 8% pa, continuing to Judgment at £0.04 per day.

    Amount claimed £178.04
    Court Fee £25.00
    Legal representative costs £50.00
    Total amount £253.04

    So I have 33 days from the 17th November to put my defence together.

    Yes there are signs at the entrance of the car park and signs scattered around the car park, I am not sure if these signs at the entrance were there when I got this ticket last May, it was a new system, we never used to have to pay, many parents use this car park to collect there children from school and I think this is why the land owner put this system in place....

    If you need to know anything else please let me know.

    Thanks very much...

    You get a lot of different opinions on here, but the worst opinion you listened to is from the person who told you to ignore all correspondence because you were parked on private land.

    It has only got this far because you failed to respond to letters. Otherise you might have had a fighting chance of getting out if it.

    In court you will be faced with photographic evidence of your car being parked where they say it was and similarly of signs informing users of their rights as to parking there. So unless there is some fundamental flaw in the way the car park operated, you will have an uphill battle on your hands.

    However, if you can come up with some form of credible argument and the other side thinks they will actually have to go to court to win the case, that might be enough to persuade them to discontinue on the grounds that even if they win, it will cost them more to get the judgment than they will get back from you. Sometimes a claimant is faced with making a business decision as to whether or not its worth the effort.

    Somebody advised me to come to some sort of agreement with Gladstone Solicitors. Tell them their claim fails to meet the standard of the newly introduced pre action protocol, that I will defend the claim on the grounds that the keeper was not the driver and the signage was inadequate to form a contract, however they also advised that it would be simpler and swifter to resolve the claim without the need to go to court and I could offer £140 as full and final settlement, has anybody else done this?

    Quite a bit about Gladstones http://www.parkingcowboys.co.uk/gladstones-solicitors/ - if you don't feel you have a defence to the original ticket then of course you can negotiate a settlement with them, although the figure of £140 seems a bit arbitary - how much was the original parking fine? There's quite a few copies of letters from Gladstones over on Pepipoo forums which might give you more info as well.

    You have contact details on the court claim form.

    What was the letter saying it would be simpler not to got to court? Are they suggesting a "Paper Only" hearing? Can you post it up, with personal details removed.

    If you have no documents you should be asking Gladstones for copies of the documents which they intend to rely on.

    Hi thanks for this, yes I am reading this about Gladstone, hence why I think I would be mad to not challenge them on this, I honestly do not want to give them any money if I can help it.

    Ideally I want to put a good strong defence together and fight this all the way, however I really am looking for some guidance on how best to do this. I will contact @ostell and @chartiyunjw privately, hopefully they can help going forward. Thank you Oliver...

    Take down those forms and edit them so that identifying details are removed, especially the password.

    Private conversations are not encouraged. The forums works on the Prince of many eyes

    Ask the solicitor for the original documents that they will be relying on in court to show the alleged debt, such as the Parking Charge Notice

    Have you acknowledged the claim using the web address and password on the form? If not then do it NOW

    So Gladstone have a reputation, you have to decide how reputable? How reputable will a DJ decide it is?

    So the best way to ask the solicitor is to write to them?

    I don't entirely understand you comment?

    Having done some reading up about Gladstones, their reputation is one of an organisation that doesn't always follow the processes set out by the courts. Subjective statement, but one of research.

    I highly doubt that the District Judge will be taking their reputation into consideration, but as a consumer, if you read up about their reputation there is a higher percentage chance that they haven't followed the letter of the law, and may well have been served a claim incorrectly, so it's definitely worth contesting
