    Your defence needs to say that the Defendant was not the person who parked the car, and other facts:

    The defence needs to state that this is not a car park, it is a road adjacent to where the Defendant lives and the vehicle was only there very briefly, stopped for a handover from the garage to yourself, and parked by a person who knew nothing of any 'contract' on a dark evening. The Defendant was not the driver who parked the car. It was driven back from the garage as it had been broken down and was merely being delivered back and not parked for any length of time...

    ...you can then use Jopson v Home Guard where the Judge defined parking as opposed to a brief stop, such as for loading or delivery at a block of flats. I'm surprised you haven't just adapted Johnersh's ''own space'' defence instead of finding an old one. You can't use this, the UTCCRs Regs were repealed 2 years ago and were not considered 'important' by the Judges at the Supreme Court (God knows why not, I can't explain their decision that moved the penalties goalposts 'for Capita' without saying something I would regret):
    and contrary to the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.

    This bit below cannot be right - is it? Surely UKCPM are not suing on a pre-POFA PCN, they were clampers then and I've never seen them sue on a 2012 or earlier PCN. Stating the obvious but you will have to state your defence at a hearing in front of a Judge, so you MUST proof read your defence and understand it, and make sure everything makes sense (apologies if it is a pre-POFA PCN, but it seems unlikely to me).

    From the limited information provided by the particulars of claim, it can be seen the date of the alleged incident is xxxxxx which predates the enactment of PoFA 2012.

    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.

    Hi, so I have sent offer my defence and just received a letter from Gladstones stating there client wishing to proceed with the claim. They have attached a copy of UKCPM Direction questioner, they are electing not to mediate. They have also requested the case be dealt with on papers not its a hearing.

    Wishing this be heard on papers is the famous Gladstones wheeze

    Normally means they do not want to go to court and they
    are unsure if they will win

    Say NO to papers, you want this heard face to face in front of a judge. Advise them of this and include your costs schedule

    If they have your number or email address, they might offer
    you a discount and then shortly after, they will discontinue

    Yes, we know, this happens in every Gladstones case; it's been done to death.

    You know that too, I hope, because you'll have read other Gladstones threads and were expecting this and you know what to do, from those other Gladstones threads.

    Not repeating it on every Gladstones thread. I think I am on strike...
