    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

    JackBasta, I have a Millennium one, but it's Copper Quarter. Have a look at my thread. When you get your Millennium Witness Statement look carefully at the landowner contract which they will exhibit to it. Is it signed by the Claimant, or another Millennium entity? If you look at the last page or two of my thread you'll see my Skeleton Argument where I delve into this. Also useful lists of breaches of the BPA Code of Practice (they were a member of BPA back then). Some of it might be relevant to you.

    Exactly Fruitcake.


    The different versions of the CoP are on the BPA website, if you click on "Knowledge" then "Code of Practice" the most recent (V6, Oct 2015) is at the top, then the other versions are listed underneath.
    Version 5 is interesting, I posted about that in my thread, it has some interesting obligations about landowner authority which were removed from V6.
