    Advice needed please!! 11th Jan 18 at 1:28 PM
    I received a pcn back in August which I naively appealed without referring to this site. Itís now got to theí letter before claimí stage and so I just want to ask whether I have any kind of appeal (my guess is no!)
    I parked in a car park which I had never used before- pulled into a space and a lady gave me her ticket which had time left on it. I therefore did not go to the ticket machine so didnít realise the car park had anpr. I assume this is no defence as all tickets say not transferrable?
    All advice appreciated.

    Do you have to put the licence plate number in the machine do you know?
    I would expect so.
    (Not sure if you can go and check if you don't know)

    Read up on this in the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum to learn about the game you are caught up in.


    There is comprehensive advice on dealing with the letter before claim as well as how to defend a court claim

    If you tell us who the parking comany is we might be able to give you a better idea of how your case might proceed.
    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.

    Which you will see if you spend time on the FAQ!

    They have had a dabble with some small claims. Not seen any reported results - from memory. They use Gladstones Solicitors who really manage to mess up many contested cases.

    Deal with your LBA and any subsequent documentation as per the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #2. You need to study that section comprehensively so youíre ready for the next stage and not surprised/shocked by what drops through your letterbox.

    Do some forum searches on ĎHX courtí and ĎHX Gladstonesí.

    HOW TO USE SEARCH

    Use the Forum Jump button (one near the top and one near bottom of this page) to get back to the forum thread list. Just above the threads, on the right, is a heading along a line, next to forum tools, called 'Search this Forum'. Put your key word(s) in and change the default search from 'Show Threads' to 'Show Posts'.
    Also do a wider Google search on ĎYouíve been Gladstonedí
