    Made an error when filing acknowledgment of service

    Made an error when filing acknowledgment of service 12th Jul 18 at 11:33 PM
    I received Mcol from civil enforcement. After reading the advice on the claim form I went online to complete the acknowledgment of service. I ticked the box to contest jurisdiction as I thought that would mean it would be directed to my local court, however, I now think I shouldn't have done this!

    I was feeling very overwhelmed by the whole situation which has been going on for nearly a year, until I came across this website with all this fantastic advice. I was just starting to feel confident in defending this claim but it seems I've already made an error that I'm not sure I can go back and change?

    Brief outline: driver purchased ticket. Driver left well before ticket expired. I receive a PCN. I contact them immediately as per their appeal process with scanned image of the parking ticket which luckily the driver had retained. They reject this stating terms & conditions not met - I assume due to the incomplete car registration number shown on the ticket (it was missing the last 3 letters, no idea how this happened but wasn't noticed at the time) I contact the land owner to complain, they refuse to get involved. I ignore all further correspondence from civil enforcement until I received the Mcol.

    Had I have found this forum at the beginning then there is plenty I'd have done differently!

    I am putting together a defence using all of the great advice here, but have a shot myself in the foot with this mistake with the acknowledgement or service, and if so, is there anything I can do to put it right?

    Ring the CCBC and tell them you do not contest jurisdiction & that was an error.

    Mention it in your defence and in your DQ as well, making it clear.

    This is much better than the error someone else did, by putting something in the defence box at AOS stage, so when they went to email their proper defence it was rejected by the CCBC as there was already a 'partial defence' in! Eeek!

    Thank you - that was amazingly quick, you've put my mind at ease now! I'll ring them in the morning and include it in the defence also.
