    Court papers ref BW legal/Excel 11th Mar 17 at 8:07 AM
    Well after exchanging letters with BW Legal since last September they have finally sent me court papers.
    Basic is that BW legal are saying that the parking permit was not displayed in an ANPR ticket car park in Wakefield in August 2012.
    I have asked for evidence of the alleged contravention and all that has been sent back are photos of the car entering and leaving the car park.
    Now three people were insured for driving at the time this occurred, I have not indicated any driver to date, and I am/was the registered keeper.
    The court appearance is for Northampton, so I am obviously asking for that to be changed to my local court.
    My defence draft is basically to reiterate, that BW/Excel have not provided proof of the driver, they have not provided proof of the lack of display of parking permit and they have not stated that the parking fee was not paid.
    Any assistance is welcome.

    Hooray!

    You could consider a complaint then LBCCC to them and the landowner, then a claim for compensation of a few hundred (naming both parties). Don't rush it, you'd need to establish the issues with the landowner in a complaint first to give them a chance to settle it.

    And you would need to research your legal arguments, you can't just make up a sum out of thin air (PPCs do that!).

    Letter Before County Court Claim. Aka LBA (Action) or LBC (Claim).

    Have a read of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #2 which is a comprehensive guide to the court process. Set in the context of defending a court claim, but if you turn it on its head, you can get a good idea about what needs to be done to instigate a court claim.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    When this happens the defendant is usually awarded their full costs. Check your past paperwork to see if this is the case. Write to the court asking for your costs. Charge your time at the litigant in person rate of £19/hour.

    Hi all, sorry I have not updated this, todate no further action by Excel/BW, I have not done anything about claiming costs as I have been extremely busy with some consultancy work.
    May get to have a go at Excel early next year, but other than that nothing.
    Cheers
