    Court claim Gladstones Solicitors update 12/04/2018 15th Apr 18 at 11:42 PM
    court claim Parking Control Management vs Greg (me):

    I have currently made an N244 to set aside CCJ in default because I was on holiday and came back late to respond on time. This is what they prepared now to fight with me, they are acting so legally so I am afraid that I will lose on next occasion. Any professional help in this forum will be so appreciated.

    I have attached all the documents from them. I have filled my defence will upload it here as well below when finished, I have a skeleton for defence but I am not sure if it is right.

    link to documents, please: https://goo.gl/H7v6uZ

    Any help welcome with defence or what to change before sending it to court.

    I take it you mean Gladstones are using legalese language to bamboozle you?

    That's not the same thing as 'acting legally'!!

    Any professional help in this forum will be so appreciated.
    You will get opinion and advice from people who do this ALL The time, including some who are legally trained (we even have two solicitor posters who help fight the PPC scam) but no-one will give you 'professional advice' on a forum.

    It's opinion and help. And it works.

    As for Gladstones' typical drivel, their efforts are not so clever as you think, and not good evidence for a claim.

    QUESTIONS FOR YOU:

    1. Weird, isn't the photo page showing the car parked nose in facing a wall, yet the bottom
    picture shows the windscreen with the car's back end against a wall?

    2. Is this at your own place of residence or were you an authorised visitor?

    3. No permit at all, or had the permit slipped?

    4. Did PCM pounce within minutes? How many minutes between photos?

    5. Have you had the CCJ set aside at an initial hearing already? Yes - or not yet?

    1. I haven't seen that pictures they should be taken at different times. I will check tomorrow.
    2. It was in the industrial state at Karting grid car park outside.
    3. Driver had no permit on a vehicle.
    4.Within minutes, no waiting time.
    5. CCJ was in default first and I set it aside at an initial hearing.

    Clowni, why are you going around posting irrelevant stuff on other threads?

    Upping your post count for some reason?

    I thought that as well.

    Very odd from a forum newbie.

    Btw, your full car registration number is visible in those photos and other documents for all the world to see. PCN number too.

    And when you post your Defence on here, as apparently you are planning to do, the whole world will be able to relate your Defence and everything you say in it to that vehicle.

    The private parking companies trawl forums like this just waiting for people to trip themselves up and you appear to be heading in that direction.

    I have now edited my documents and they are not visible to any member of a private parking company.

    More editing required of the sixth image.
    The full car registration number and the full PCN number can still clearly be seen.

    This is an entirely unregulated industry which is scamming the public with inflated claims for minor breaches of contracts for alleged parking offences, aided and abetted by a handful of low-rent solicitors.

    Parking Eye, CPM, Smart, and another company have already been named and shamed, as has Gladstones Solicitors, and BW Legal, (these two law firms take hundreds of these cases to court each year). They lose most of them, and have been reported to the regulatory authority by an M.P. for unprofessional conduct

    Hospital car parks and residential complex tickets have been especially mentioned.

    The problem has become so rampant that MPs have agreed to enact a Bill to regulate these scammers. Watch the video of the Second Reading in the HofC recently.

    http://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/2f0384f2-eba5-4fff-ab07-cf24b6a22918?in=12:49:41

    and complain in the most robust terms to your MP. With a fair wind they will be out of business by Christmas.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    Now it should be covered, I edited every picture to remove personal details, VRM and PCN numbers.

    Just a heads-up. If the vehicle is still registered to you and is on the road, the DVLA are saying it hasn't been taxed since August last year. You could be facing a real fine.
    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.

    No this vehicle is exported abroad and has a marking export: yes, please check that. I am not the owner of this vehicle since March 2017.

    When did you find out about the CCJ?

    When is the set aside hearing?

    When can we see your Witness Statement?

    I found out about CCJ dated 17/01/2018 when I came back from holiday in the end of January.
    The set aside hearing took place on 03/04/2018.
    I have no time to upload a Witness Statement because I am preparing a Defense right now, need to send it out before Tuesday 24/04/2018.

    Oh, didn't realise the set aside hearing has already taken place.
    No need to see the WS then.

    Do carry on with your Defence.
