    Northampton Court Claim arrived (MCOL)

    Northampton Court Claim arrived (MCOL) 10th Nov 16 at 1:45 PM
    Just recieved a claim form through. Solicitor involved is Gladstones.

    The "parking event" occured in Summer of 2012. Original notices (if there were any - I had various at the time) ignored and it went away until this year when letters were sent again (I guess Beavis case gave them impetus to try again?).

    I replied asking for evidence (via email and letter) - they then sent though pictures of my car with parking noticed attached to windscreen.

    I then looked though these forums and sent Gladstones an EMAIL, not a letter (a mistake?) where I asked them to fully comply with Practice Direction, stating that they hadn't

    1. Sent a clear summary of facts,
    2. How the "charge amount" has been calculated and justified
    3. A list of documents on which their client intends to rely
    4. Any form of ADR.

    I got no response to that email, and now I have an N1SDT form though from Northampton (I believe this is known as an MCOL).

    Any ideas on what my next actions should be. I know I need to reply to the MCOL (I can do this online), but should I just be paying it, or if I put up a standard defence, am I likely to win?
    Will POFA 2012 help me for example?

    Thanks

    Millennium obviously doesn't pay well to those who Don't Know The Answers to Anything - facebook says she has two bar jobs as well..... I hadn't realised that she had a law degree. I wonder how she managed that....

    I got the "General Form of Judgement or Order" through from the Court a few days back.

    States that

    1. The Claim be dismissed
    2. The Claimant pay the defendant's costs assessed in the sum of £193.47 payable by 2pm 14th June 2017.

    They have 2 hours left....

    to send the bailiffs in.
    You will get that fee back plus what they owe you.

    Telephone on: 020 3580 3600 or 03457 05 05 05. E-mail using the following address: viewerenquiries@channel5.com.

    Give the ppc a ring and ask them what is the correct address for baliffs to go to.

    Joking aside the channel 5 show only deals with high court enforcement. This is county court. The debt would have to be over £600 to transfer it to the high court.

    Go to the court tomorrow and apply for a warrant of control, costs £110 and as advised it gets added to their bill. The court will send baliffs local to their address to attend and collect payment or take control of goods to the same value.
