    Do a forum search here for 'MIL Collections' and a similar one on PePiPoo as there are dozens and dozens of cases. All the advice you need can be found in other threads between the two forums.

    http://forums.pepipoo.com/index.php?showforum=60

    You can be certain that if you fail to respond you will have a default judgment against you for the sum they are claiming, then they will attempt to extort further sums from you when they send their court judgment claim. If you fail to pay the costs, you will have an unsatisfied CCJ against your name which comes with 6 years of credit grief which can seriously affect your ability to secure a loan, a mortgage, even a mobile phone contract. In some jobs it can lead to real problems.

    So you have to deal with this - it won't go away.

    Also read accounts of how MIL have been easily beaten in court on the Parking Prankster's blog site. Go back over the past few months of blogs - there's a number of cases reported.

    My vehicle was parked on land at the side of a train station, which I thought was part of the station parking. Having used this parking for over ten years whilst dropping and picking the kids up from school this was a free parking area, which has obviously changed. On the day I question we were rushing to catch a train so just parked up and ran for the train not noticing the place had become a pay and display. Upon return the notice was on the screen doing a quick internet search the consensus was to ignore the notice.


    Llawnroc sent a few letters threatening court proceedings but nothing came of it. Then approx. 12mths later MIL sent a letter saying they had purchased the debt threatening with court again, I again ignored them and have now received the claim form from the courts

    you are GUESSING it had was station land , might still be , but now have pay and display meters on it


    how about doing some research , find out if the land is railway property ?


    this can make a huge difference to the case
    Have YOU had to walk 500 miles?
    Were you advised to walk 500 more?
    You could be entitled to compensation.

    What about the signage, how clear are they and what do they say.

    MIL will buy just any old thing if £££'s are part of it.

    It is very clear that MIL don't actually know what they are buying and when they get to court where they mostly lose, they have not done their homework as you are about to do.

    Suggest you go and take a set of pictures of the area and the signs.
    Then upload to a photo hosting site like photobucket and then paste the link here. As you are a new user please use hxxp:// instead of http:// and one of us will make it live for you.

    Let's see what the real picture is. With the signs do a full frame

    Northampton is just a clearing section.

    If it gets that far, you can request it in your own local court

    You really need to read the NEWBIES FAQs thread heading 'Small Claim?' and the links there about small claims stage - you are asking questions already covered umpteen times as well as in the sticky FAQs thread near the top.

    You must acknowledge the claim online - exactly as explained by bargepole in the linked thread under 'Small Claim?' in the NEWBIES thread. If you ask 'which boxes do I tick?' we'll send you back to read bargepole's summary of the paperwork because everything IS answered.

    As stated by beamerguy, any hearing will be at your local court.

    You also need to search the forum for MIL and read HO87's advice on loads of threads. MIL cases are usually able to be won with a decent defence if you do more reading and get the issues.

    Oh, and do not reply to any private message from a poster with less than 1000 posts to their name here. We deal with these issues openly on the forum and any pm could be from anyone at all (even the parking firm) and is not recommended to be replied to/read.

    Show us your defence once you've read more threads and have acknowledged the claim.
    PCN in a private car park in England/Wales? DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    USE THE 'FORUM JUMP' ON RIGHT, GO TO THE PARKING TICKETS FORUM. READ THE 'NEWBIES' THREAD.
    Do NOT read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    So presumably you then searched the forum (because obviously, THOUSANDS of new posters have had that message this year alone!) and found out how to get round that?

    @cueball

    Before you do anything else
    you should log on to MCOL (Moneyclaim Online) using the instructions shown in the box to the centre-right on the front page of the claim form. You will need to create a Government Gateway ID first (straightforward process) and then use the log-on and password provided on the claim form.

    Acknowledge service of the claim form and choose the option to defend the matter in full but do not put anything in the defence box yet. Opt to submit your defence later.

    By doing this you will give yourself a total of 28 days in which to respond. Do this now before you forget and before time runs out.

    Once you have completed that stage come to PePiPoo forum and search through the many, more detailed threads there for advice. Look for my advice in the multitude of MIL Collections threads (I post as Hotel Oscar 87 on that forum).

    The first thing you need to bend your head around is that this case will be fought principally on legal grounds (of which there are plenty) not the facts of the case.
    My very sincere apologies for those hoping to request off-board assistance but I am now so inundated with requests that in order to do justice to those "already in the system" I am no longer accepting PM's and am unlikely to do so for the foreseeable future (August 2016).

    For those seeking more detailed advice and guidance regarding small claims cases arising from private parking issues I recommend that you visit the Private Parking forum on PePiPoo.com
