    Wright Hassall LBC

    Wright Hassall LBC 5th Dec 17 at 5:39 PM
    Please forgive me. I work hard, I'm tired most of the time and cannot get my head around this legal jargon..

    I believe I have got a LBC from WH (I actually have 4 of them!)

    It's different from others I have received, Instead of just single pieces of paper, I've been sent books. Has WH (ZZPS) re-written their letters to comply with the new PRE-ACTION CONDUCT AND PROTOCOLS?

    Page 2 ibb.co/gLPmNw

    for those who want to know: the car was parked for 8 months by the trader (Who I got the car from) while I was going through a small claims court claim because the trader refused to fix it. The trader shut his business and re-opened another to avoid paying
    me.

    I appreciate your patience!

    You clearly were not the driver or the keeper so you have an absolute defence. To nip this in the bud, you should advise WH of the same but you will need to back it up with some evidence such as paperwork from the court about your claim.
    Life's for living, get on with it rather than worrying about these. If they hassle, counter claim.

    Send them that costs schedule though, 24 hours before the hearing, and file it with the court. Take with you evidence that you have sent the costs schedule to them and when.

    All I have is the court letters, do you think that will be enough?

    I do believe the car was parked before the NTC signs were erected aswell.

    Fancy that, WH has complied with the new protocol

    There is no logic to Wright Hassall, they are simply working
    on the cheap, they class themselves as real solicitors but
    all the solicitors I know would not get out of bed for such
    a poultry sum of money.
    And the biggest clue is they might not win and you will win

    All this effort for £90 odd pounds and a charge to the PPC.

    A bit like a "pound store" in the legal profession

    It is a sad day when the legal profession have to
    scrape around for money

    There appears to be mistakes on their cover letter, there is two phone numbers and two e-mail address.

    and only three out of the four are signed.

    With the way its worded, are WH able to take me to court? Or is that still only possible by the Car Park Operator?

    WH will be representing the parking firm in court.

    Just tell them the truth and based on what you have said you have a great defence. Just make sure you supply your evidence at this stage so that you are also complying with the rules.

    Really? They won’t even get out of bed for 90 quid. Where do you get your ideas from?

    The only court case in which they have been directly involved in is the nurses in South Wales (a huge case in comparison to this one).

    There is no evidence that WH have been involved in any run-of-the-mill private parking cases at county court level. They seem to value their reputation.

    @ Ryan - You really must stop giving advice that is not backed by hard facts or real experience.

    I'd draft a robust response to that. Yes they have sent you a pretty information pack, but:

    1. What are their allegations?
    2. Have they supplied the parking contract /complete terms?
    3. Have they supplied their parking contract to operate on site?

    Ask for that and make clear in the letter that you have a complete defence to the claim and were neither the driver nor in possession of the vehicle. The claim is without merit and you invite them to discontinue.
