    Total parking solutions/ ie legal solicitors 11th May 17 at 11:56 PM
    Hello, I had received a parking ticket in February from TPS on my University campus. I have now received a letter from IE LEGAL SOLICITORS with a "formal demand" for "notice of impending legal actions" and to pay by 15th may. Do I pay the 110 pound fine or wait to go court or appeal to them? Can anyone please help me, I was not aware private parking tickets would end up being chased this much.

    Please read the NEWBIES FAQ sticky which will give you the background to dealing with private parking charges. You're too late to do anything by way of appeal, so wait to see what their next move is.

    TPS are not known for rushing to litigate - just a handful of cases in the past 2 years, whereas there are many operators suing people in their thousands.

    Do I pay the 110 pound fine
    No, and it's not a fine.

    They sound about as impressive as the useless 'BW Legal' who we help people beat in small claims every time!

    Thank you for the replies. I have a few final demand letters from tps. Any suggestions on how to deal with these? I have had a read through the links.

    Respond like on other LBC threads. You won't find that solicitor but look for Gladstones LBC threads.

    Did I E LEGAL really say "client may issue a CCJ" ????

    If so, they are talking rubbish as this only happens if you lost in court and did not pay. Their client is not empowered to do so ... only a real judge can inact a CCJ

    So, If this is true, they are misleading you and should be reported to the SRA

    They act as debt collectors as well offering a no win no fee
    service so prime legals for the parking cowboys to use
    http://www.ielegal.co.uk/debt-claims

    I do hope that I E Legal do not attempt to blacken their reputation by going to bed with the Parking scammers just as Gladstones,
    BWLegal and Wright Hassall have done

    Will I E Legal RISK being whooped in court just like the above have experienced

    Did they actually use those words - verbatim (you're a student, so you must know exactly what that means), especially the word 'issue?

    I know the client cannot issue a ccj. "Client will issue a country court CLAIM against you" sorry for the inconvenience. Any advice on what to do?

    I'm aware that TPS have got the boot from at least one Uni recently - maybe this is how they are going about maximising the take from their remaining victims?

    You have to wait and see if their 'threat' of court action will be followed through. My guess is that it won't, although they may keep making veiled threats about it.

    You make your mind up if you think that from all the tickets they issue year-on-year, they are going to single you out to be their 6th case ever for pursuit via the small claims court. Here's their record for the past 2.5 years.

    LATEST LETTER:
    CLAIM FORM in the county court business centre. They are asking for 912 pound from a 30 pound parking ticket. They have enclosed an "admission" and "defence" section. How serious is this and How likely is it that They will charge me 912 pound which I do not have. Is there any good defence I can write back? PLS HELP there is a deadline on this I think. Thanks in advance

    That's going to be a laugh. Could you take personal details off and post up a pic.

    Don't forget to Acknowledge the claim first.
    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

    On line via MCOL. The details on the 'how' will be included in the papers you have received - surely?

    It does not allow me to attach a photo
    To upload a photo/scan link, you first need to host it on a free photo hosting site (like Dropbox, Photobucket or Tinypic), copy the URL, paste it here, but change the http to hxxp and we'll do the conversion. Newbies can't directly upload links to photos/scans until they've got a few posts under their belt.
