    Parking UKPC CCJ pending need advice please 7th Dec 17 at 6:59 PM
    Hi I hope someone can advise.
    I used to pay parking fines at once but following advice on this site I didn't pay a few tickets from ukpc. The parking at my work isn't very clear lines are rubbed away and there was debris and old cars bins etc dotted about the site. On 3 occasions I parked in areas which they say were not actual spaces.
    I spoke to the law company and they would not compromise. I have submitted my defence but I'm worried it will not be enough and then I will have to pay 770 and will get a ccj against may name. I need to renew my mortgage in 18 months and I'm worried it may cost me more?

    My wife and I are worried and I now wish I just paid the initial 240 for 4 tickets.
    Many thanks

    The order will simply be the local courts deciding how to divvy up cases, on the basis that Slough is nearer for you. UKPC have no say in this because they are a company claimant and you are a litigant-in-person, and the court will be your nearest.

    I also have some further evidence in the form of a photo showing how unclear the parking was in the site. Does anyone know if this will be admissible in the hearing?
    Have you already submitted your Witness Statement and evidence, as per the letter from the court naming the court & hearing date?

    Hi all its now been a couple of months since my case got referred to another court and I have heard nothing since. Is that normal - could there just be a backlog?

    Thanks again

    I haven't received a hearing date yet. I did send a "defence statement" before Christmas but that was to the central court before it was referred. Thanks again

    I would ring the court it was allocated to, and we assume that's your local one.

    Got the letter today. I have a date in august it says that the claimant has to pay 80 to progress the case by early july or it will be thrown out. I guess this is the standard?

    Yes that's standard.

    It also gives a date for you submit your witness statement - not in so many words but something like fourteen days before you must supply documents and evidence you rely on.

    Do not miss that date.

    It does not say you have to pay anything. Read it again.
    You told us earlier that 'the claimant has to pay 80 to progress the case'.

    Of course it does not say you have to submit a defence. You have already done that.

    Does it say anything about both parties submitting documents they intend toi rely on?

    If you can't work out what it says then post an image.

    So, errrmmmm...what do you think the words under 'Directions' mean?

    And on the back, what does it say, what date do you have to follow the Directions by?

    Without meaning any offence, can I refer you to read IamEmanresu's signature...

    Point taken in my defence I was at work and I only had the first page then.
    Still think the wording is unclear.

    No idea how this is going to go! Any final tips for my evidence and hearing would be appreciated .

    Well you need to ensure you have a witness statement compiled - you should jhave one almost done by now
    What is the deadline for you to send them in? Doesnt appear on the page you gave us.

    Do most defendants get statements from colleagues backing up their own statements?

    Many witnesses use other witness statements too, in order to back up their version of events. Best if the other witness is able to come to the hearing to confirm their WS, to give it more weight.

    I'm with you on that.

    If you won't answer simple questions, it is difficult to predict.
