    Armtrac Security/BW Legal Letter of Claim

    Armtrac Security/BW Legal Letter of Claim 4th Dec 19 at 12:51 PM
    Hi Everybody,

    It's my first time having to post here, although I've used advice from the forum many times in the past.

    Way back in 2015 I received a parking ticket from Armtrac Security at Sennen Beach in Cornwall. I had paid for a ticket but I moved the car during the day and it must have disappeared. It was so long ago that I really don't remember better than that!

    Back then I ignored all the letters, but I recently received a Letter of Claim from BW Legal.

    I followed the advice on the Newbie thread on here by sending a SAR to Armtrac, and a letter explaining this to BW Legal.

    Armtrac have responded to the SAR by only sending copies of the ticket itself, plus the "free" photoshoot of our car.
    BW Legal have replied with the expected letter refusing to put anything on hold.

    I don't believe that I have yet received an actual court claim.


    I'm very conscious that I don't want to clog this place with yet another thread, however I've been reading through as many threads as I can, plus repeatedly going over the Newbie thread and I can't quite figure out at what point I need to take the next step.

    Would I be correct to say that the next step will be an AoS? If so, do I do that now, or wait for the actual court claim.

    Thank you all in advance, I apologise if I've missed something obvious!

    Well done on your research and actions so far.

    The next stage of the process will be the receipt of a court claim via the Northampton CCBC which will need acknowledgement (AOS), so you can't do an AOS until the Court Claim is actually received.

    Thank you. I will await the court claim and go from there. I'm sure I shall be back with more questions when the time comes!

    You might want to do some targeted research via keywords Armtrac Court and read other similar (recent) cases. Most follow a similar pattern and you can reasonably expect yours to do likewise.

    HOW TO USE THE FORUM SEARCH FUNCTION:

    Hit your 'Back' button to get back to the forum thread list. On the bar just above the threads you'll see the 'Search' function. Click on the 'Advanced Search' button and on the following page place your keyword(s) in the 'Search By Keyword(s)' and make sure the 'Show Results As' button (at the foot of the window) is changed from 'Threads' to 'Posts'.
