    Court Claim - AoS Complete

    Court Claim - AoS Complete 4th Jun 18 at 6:24 PM
    Hi,
    I need some support with my defence.
    I've completed the AoS after receiving the court claim dated 29/05/18.
    2 hour maximum stay retail car park, I returned to the vehicle around the two hour stage but it took me a further (I think) 14 minuted to exit the car park due to traffic. This is due to a badly designed one-way system car park which left lots of cars queuing to get out as well as there being excessive traffic on the road outside of the car park. The main reason for overstaying on the premesis was that traffic on the road outside the car park was exsessive and caused a long queue in the car park itself.
    Hope you can help!
    You seem to know your stuff @Coupon-mad

    TIA,
    Tom

    Yes that'll do. Seems perfectly reasonable to argue this at the hearing.

    Should I submit the full defence to the court now then?

    Send your Defence by email like everyone else does:

    Once you are satisfied with the content -
    1) print your Defence
    2) sign it
    3) scan the signed document back in and save it as a pdf.
    4) send that pdf as an email attachment to CCBCAQ@Justice.gov.uk
    5) just put the claim number and the word Defence in the email title, and in the body of the email something like 'Please find my Defence attached'.

    Hi KeithP, thanks for the input.

    It's suggested in one of the newbie links 'Court Claim Procedure (updated October 2016)' to print and post (registered) (or tracked), but good to know I have the option of emailing as well, ta

    We always suggest emailing, as it's free and immediate and provable.

    Go for it.

    Yes, read the NEWBIES thread! It tells you 'what happens when' re the N180 DQ.

    It will come but to save you time, just download a blank one (N180) from the internet and fill it out as suggested in the Newbies thread

    You can opt for a papers only hearing at this stage if you are happy to trust to your arguments. In this case you seem to have a reasonable case based on the grace periods.

    I've had the correspondence to say that the case has been referred to my local court, does this mean there will definitely be an in-person hearing?

    It just means it has been referred to your local court, which it has to be papers or not.

    Maybe check with the court. That would be hghly sensible.

    The fact that I have commented on your thread does not mean I have become your personal adviser. A long list of subsequent questions addressed for my personal attention is unlikely to receive a reply.

    As you could have guessed, or should have seen, given weve referred you there everytime!

    WS is just a WS. Not a "pack". You wil have a bundle of docs bythe end of it, of which the WS is just one.

    What is the date, and when is your deadline for sending in docs?
