    Court Claim Form help please 15th Jul 17 at 8:24 PM
    Hi to everyone,
    I'm a newbie and need some help please. I have read the newbies thread but still need some advice specific to our case.
    The Registered Keeper received a parking ticket last year for parking in a retail park with a "No Parking On Roadways At Any Time" sign for 2 minutes. We did not pay the fine as we thought it was an extortionate amount for parking there for 2 minutes on a Sunday.
    We wrote to UK CPM once, after receiving a Final Demand and to Gladstones Solicitors once too upon receiving a Letter Before Claim from them. But they sent us Court Claim Papers asking for £248.30 in total costs.

    Basically, the driver parked there because she/he is a renal patient and was on PD at the time (a type of dialysis). the driver was due to do a dialysis exchange at that time and parked there so he could check if the restaurant nearby that they were due to have a family dinner in had a toilet suitable enough for him/her to do an exchange. So they all had just parked up and walked into the restaurant and when he/she came out to move the car after checking, there was a ticket on the windscreen.
    Because the driver was hoping to ignore the parking charge notice and hoped to not hear from the parking company again- he/she did not think it necessary to disclose their medical condition and the circumstances to the parking firm.
    So i just wanted to ask if we should state this in our defence as RK or if we can use any orher points in our defence.
    This has caused the RK so much unwanted stress - we just want this finished and over and done with. But we are not willing to pay a single penny to these daylight robbers
    Thank you for taking the time to help us out.

    Thank you for your response to my query Coupon-mad. I really appreciate it.

    I just wanted to ask if it would be possible to change the Court hearing date in case of an emergency? The Defendant is on the transplant register for a kidney and also has a possible donor so will hopefully receive his transplant within the next few months. so we just wondered if it would be possible to change the date of the hearing if we had to?

    OK you need to be quicker at responding. 2 weeks is a LONG time!

    On your N180 state your reasons why you may need to request a new hearing. earlier you do it the better. then wehen you get a court hearing date from the allocated court, it could be worth ringing them directly and saying it again, so they are aware.

    You can only ask for a new hearing date, as I understand it, you cannot require it. However it would be odd of the court to deny such a request.
