    Letter of Claim Recieved- BW Legal

    Letter of Claim Recieved- BW Legal 10th Jul 18 at 2:00 PM
    Hi in 2012 my partner and I parked in a car park for P&O ferries operated by Premier Parking Solutions and received a parking fine.

    You had to display both parts of the ticket in the windscreen as the one ticket on its own didn't actually show the expiration time. I cannot remember if we did show both (I only know both were needed as googling brought up another thread in the same car park). To me knowledge we never had a response to the appeal.

    At the time I emailed an appeal (naively)- I wasn't driving and I wasn't the registered keeper.
    I do know that at the time we paid the full amount for the parking to be valid and I still have photos of the tickets.

    I would like advice on where to go from here, should I just pay this now as i really don't want a CCJ against my name. Or can I request all the information that BW Legal have on the case prior to me responding?

    Thanks

    Plus I cannot afford the risk of a CCJ as im about to get a mortgage.
    You are in no danger of a CCJ. Read this:

    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.

    Sorry I think I may have confused you Coupon-mad. In my original appeal, I used the following sentence....

    "I am extremely annoyed to discover that an member of your staff has issued my car with the following ticket when we had paid the full amount and the tickets were clearly displayed on the dashboard"

    It was my boyfriends car and he was the driver, by using the sentence above have I lost all ability to say the claim doesn't belong to me?

    No, I didn't misunderstand. Re-read what I said to do, and put the words together as suggested.

    I can't understand how you can't see this! It is simple. You cannot be liable unless you were keeper or driver. You need to tell BW Legal, NOW...as posted before. You've now wasted a day.

    Thanks Coupon-mad, so can I send the template under the newbies thread but include a sentence stating im not the driver or keeper and that should be ok?

    No. That is not what I posted to do.

    Sorry Coupon-mad my mistake. Ok I will respond with that letter tomorrow. One question- what If they contact my ex and he then turns around and says I was the driver to spite me? Albeit when I rung the DVLA they couldn't find the car based upon reg on the ticket and make and model as its a private reg and now on a different vehicle

    Haven't gone back through the thread (may have missed it, so apologies), how will they contact your ex?

    They don't know who he is, and it's far too late for them to get his data.
