    9 months after alleged parking contravention I get a Final Reminder from Excel! 11th Dec 17 at 8:23 PM
    In March this year, some parking charges sent by Excel were challenged. They were imposed because, on dropping off a disabled lady at a hotel that the carpark served (amongst other businesses) on a few occasions, took longer than the 10mins allowed. The pay as you park function wasn't working. They were sent photographic evidence of this.
    On the 29 November, a final reminder arrived. Bearing in mind, the details of every notice received was listed on the original appeal and, as nothing was heard since, it was assumed that the appeal had been successful. Does anyone know if there's any way that I can check this?
    The notice states that an NTK was sent on 1st March 2017 and, because their records state that it wasn't responded to the right to appeal has been lost??
    The car in question has recently been sold and the number plate is unassigned. Could this have triggered them to act now?
    Re-appeal or just ignore?

    Defence Filed
    I've submitted my defence.
    For info, I emailed it to 3 different email addresses just to be on the safe side.

    I originally sent it to two, these were

    ccbcaq@justice.gov.uk (suggested new addy)
    ccbc@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk (addy advertised on their website)

    I got a response from the first email address which included:

    IMPORTANT

    You will need to send any ‘claim response’ which includes the acknowledgment of service, part admission or defence /counterclaim forms as well as directions questionnaires (DQs) directly to ccbcaq@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk to ensure that they are filed correctly. Your email has not been forwarded.

    So, I sent it to that email address too

    ccbcaq@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk is the widely suggested address on here, and is in fact the one explicitly stated for claim responses on the County Court Business Centre's Contact page:



    But you got there in the end.

    That last one is the one that we always advise, never the one without 'aq' in it.

    ccbc@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk (addy advertised on their website)
    So is ccbcaq@

    Silly question time again.
    I'm completing my DQ as per the Newbies advice.
    Mum is going to write a statement and will attend court with me. If I have my brother and sister-in-law write statements and exhibit their relevant insurance documents, do I need to put 4 witnesses down? I have no idea what their availability is likely to be as my brother works away a lot.

    the witness statements can be used in writing and they dont have to be there although that means they cannot be questioned

    so I would be putting down the number of witness statements you are going to submit , even if the witnesses fail to attend (or some of them)

    when the witness statements are done by yourself etc in the future, the court can be notified of who may be attending , including yourself and any witnesses

    The answer to that question is to help them ensure they allocate enough accommodation in the court room.

    It's the number of witnesses attending, not the number of witness statements.

    in which case put down the likely number of people attending for your side, even if you have more witness statements than people in the flesh

    The court date is set - late September.
    I have my supporting witness statements from other family members.
    Question - they are admitting to having driven my car through that car park although none of us can confirm who drove on which days. Would there be a case for Excel to pursue them?

    Excel will try, there is always an arguable case. You just have to win the argument!
