    LBC received from Gladstones for UKCPM PPC 27th Jun 17 at 11:25 AM
    Hello all


    As instructed in the newbies thread here is my new thread for my case. After initial appeal, which of course lost, and numerous debt collector letters I now have a second letter from Gladstone's which is an LBC.


    I have this template below from Gan on Pepipoo which I am prepared to send. I can provide any more detail you wonderful folks need in order to advise me. Worthy of note in the first instance that this was a postal PPC, no windscreen ticket, on a vehicle that I was hiring from Volkswagen for the weekend.


    Thanks
    Ben


    Dear Sir

    Ref : ****

    I have received your Letter Before Claim dated 1st September 2016.

    I deny any debt to Park Direct UK Ltd

    The driver is not identified in your letter and your client has failed to meet the requirements of The Protection of Freedoms Act to pursue me as keeper.

    You also cannot presume that I possess all the documents referred to in your letter.
    Please send me copies of all the documents sent by the client including the windscreen notice if one was attached to the vehicle.

    When these are supplied, please also confirm whether the intended action is founded on a contractual charge, a breach of a contract or trespass
    Please confirm that your client's contract with the land-holder includes specific authority to take legal action and that this will be produced for the court.
    I also require an explanation for the additional £50 charge including confirmation that it has already been invoiced and paid.

    When I receive the documents and your explanations I will be in a position to make a more detailed response
    It would be unreasonable to proceed with litigation before you have clarified your client's cause of action.

    I look forward to your response

    Yours Faithfully

    That's fine, except you said in the title it is UKPCM and yet your first line talks about another company:

    I deny any debt to Park Direct UK Ltd
    You could also add, in some detail, that you were a hirer of the car and the parking operator failed to serve a Notice to Hirer with the requisite enclosures as set out in para 13/14 of Schedule 4 of the POFA, so there can be no hirer liability and these continued demands of a person they cannot lawfully hold liable, constitutes harassment.

    Thanks Coupon


    That was just a straight cut and paste from the other website I haven't changed the specifics yet and I will now include what you advise there.


    How likely following this LBC is it that UKCPM will proceed to court?

    I would say 'probably likely'. But we WIN.

    Let's change 'probably likely' to 'certain' now. Just arrived back from a winderful trip to Moldova this week to a Claim Form.


    I await the usual excellent guidance...

    Tell us when the AOS is done online on MCOL, as illustrated in the NEWBIES thread, then show us the draft defence once you have copied and adapted those you read that are similar enough.
