    County Court Business Centre "Claim Form" from UKCPS

    County Court Business Centre "Claim Form" from UKCPS 9th Jun 17 at 7:46 PM
    Hello guys! HELP!

    I am the named driver of a vehicle that got 2 'parking charges' for not having a permit to park where it shouldnt have. I have notified UKCPS MANY times when i kept getting harrassed with all these letters. I had even rung them and gave them the address and name of the driver who got the tickets. I got no responses.

    Today I got a letter from UKCPS and its a claim form in the county court business centre. I have a total amount of £175. I was away therefore my daugher had rung UKCPS up and there was a very unprofessional lady on the phone. She didnt say her name and she never asked the identity of my daughter but continued to ask the PCN number and talk about it. My daughter had told them we have recieved a 'court letter' although it doesnt look very real. She told the lady that we have sent many letters stating the drivers real address and name, however they still continued to send letters. At first she denied any letters have come and my daughter said they were signed for via royal mail. She said "ah yes we got it 2 days ago", she was clearly caught out! and when my daughter proved her wrong she said i cant talk to you about this i need to talk to the named driver which is obviously me. My daughter said you just told me confidential information about UKCPS getting a letter from me 2 days ago, and she could get in trouble for that so how dare she play the confidential card now.

    Anyway! My daughter said my father himself has wrote to you, is that not ENOUGH proof to NOT harass us with court letters and send them to the actual driver. She carrried on using the excuse "i cannot talk to you about it" currently on holiday and UKCPS are closed so will be talking to them tomorrow. Any ideas on what wil happen with the court claim form? seems fake but just dont want any CCJ on my credit history or is it too late?

    Thans in advance everyone

    chances are the claim from is from the CCBC at Northampton (NOT from ukcps at all) and is extremely real and you should take it seriously

    I assume it has the name of the RK on it in which case that person should follow post #2 of the NEWBIES sticky thread and acknowledge it online after logging in to their website with the court claim reference

    you are the named KEEPER, not the named driver, hence why YOU recieved the letter

    do not enter anything in the defence box

    this extends the time for adding a defence to 28 days , so about 33 days from the date on the letter

    dont bother ringing UKCPS up any more, its the court claim you need to be dealing with now , so you dont get a default judgment or a CCJ

    and edit your post into paragraphs so people can actually read it peoperly , thanks

    I got a letter from UKCPS and its a claim form in the county court business centre.
    Same as all the others then, read a few threads, search for 'UKCPS defence'. We haven't seen anyone lose on here but it takes a bit of work on your part.

    What did you learn from the court defence section in post #2 of the NEWBIES thread, for newbies to read first?

    could u proved a link to te newbies thread please

    all NEWBIES should read it , in your case especially post #2

    at the moment , the fact that the driver has been named doesnt stop this being a "live" court case, although it will be part of the defence

    and some people on here are "gals" not guys , like CM above for example

    Do you have any evidence you provided the name and address of the driver? If you do that is a very powerful defence point.

    #2 means second post in a thread. If you look on the right hand side all posts are numbered.

    You really need to read the Newbies thread thoroughly and several times. It contains a very comprehensive guide to defending a court claim including answers to all the questions you are asking.

    Yes it does take a fair bit of reading but you have a very, very winnable case. In order to win you do have to have a little understanding of what you are doing though.

    Faced with a decent defence they may well withdraw the case before it gets to court. You are now in a game of chicken.

    The thing is you have a trump card. Naming the driver is a complete defence and they will know they are on a hiding to nothing. Why on earth would you want to pay them given they have no case against you?

    And giving out this kind of advice is not what this forum is about.

    Yes send them the amount claimed asap to stop them paying more for a hearing. You pay the claimant not the court
