    County court claim form - help!

    County court claim form - help! 7th Dec 17 at 8:26 PM
    Hi everyone I hope you can help me!

    Today I have received a county court claim form.

    In February 2016 I dropped a friend home to her flat, she had a new born baby, and I simply helped carry her things to the 11th floor and returned to my car. My friend told me to park in this bay which all the visitors park in.

    Something like 6 months later I had a letter come through stating a £150 parking charge, I was flabagasted and stupidly I ignored thinking they hadnít sent it in time.
    (but I only realised since that they had been sending letters to my previous address. )

    Today I have now received a county court claim form, from Gladstoneís but the claimant is UK car park.

    Itís now asking for over £250!

    And the poc states Iíve breached the terms of parking on the land. The defendant was driving the vehicle and or the keeper.

    Iíve tried to read the newbie section but Iím bamboozled. Iíd really appreciate someoneís help with a defence as Iím self employed and thatís such a lot of money to me.

    Thank you in advance!

    I assume the claim form is from Northampton CCBC ?

    and I assume it is from UK CPM ?

    have you read post #2 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread at the top of this forum ?

    I suggest you read it a few times

    Thank you for your reply. Yes that’s both correct.
    I have read all through the tips, I just can’t work out where to begin with a relevant defence.... or have I missed my chance at this stage.

    that claim form will have a service date on it , usually 5 days hence , you then do the online AOS and this extends the defence deadline from 14 to 28 days

    so if the claim form only arrived today, you have until early jan 2018 as long as the AOS is done

    or does it mention POC to follow ?

    you really need to gen up on that post #2 asap too

    Yes it’s dated in the past 5 days and the poc are on the form.

    So basically I have to go online, and simply say I’m going to argue it then have a month to submit the defence?

    Thank you ��

    more or less yes

    leave the defence box blank, just do the AOS

    if in doubt , refer back to that post #2 as it is your "bible"

    This is all covered in post #2 of the NEWBIES thread, including a step by step pictorial walk-through how to do the AOS.

    Then defence examples follow, and a summary of what happens when that you must read, to know what to do, not come here asking when the Directions Questionnaire arrives later, etc.

    You need to do your own research of other threads, not fire questions at us. We want to see your draft defence later this month, then we will assist further to help make it stronger, and we will help with your WS, and the hearing stage.

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
