    Lbc template letter needed!! 14th Aug 18 at 3:31 PM
    Hi Iím very new to forums on here and all the rules etc so if Iíve offended anybody I apologise! I think this is me starting my own thread! Iíve spent hours scrolling looking for answers and although Iíve been pointed in the right direction Iím still lost! Iím not stupid just donít get it!!
    I have disputed a pcn by hx parking as I had a valid ticket purchased within the time frames and left half hour before ticket expired. Not sure what happen when purchasing but the machine printed only three letters all the same as my reg. I advised this in my dispute as normally I wouldnít even respond but I still have the ticket. Hx response. wording of the appeal states in short we have considered and reviewed in conjunction with the evidence we have gathered. Our records show that pcn was correctly issued. Extended discount period by 14 days.
    As you stated in your appeal you entered the registration *** as this is not the full or correct registration of your vehicle it is not considered valid payment. The car park uses APNR cameras so no warden would have seen my note and I should have telephoned should you have a problem. (I can go back and check these signs but there wasnt a telephone number to ring customer services on the first letter I received)!!
    Our appeals process is now closed then the usual legal speel after that.
    Gladestones letter before claim letter has arrived giving me 30 days from 2/8 before court action? Do I speak to Gladestones they have tried to ring my landline number or write, Iím presuming writing is best just need a template to get wording right. Can anyone post a link to the template I need would be very much appreciated!
    Thank you in advance!!

    Not just on here. Doing web browsing on mobile phones means that you don't get to see the full extent of the website, just a cut down mobile version with limited functionality.

    Laptops are ridiculously cheap these days, as are printers which can scan documents. Everybody should have one.

    I have been providing assistance, including Lay Representation at Court hearings (current score: won 36, lost 10), to defendants in parking cases for over 5 years. I have an LLB (Hons) degree, and am a Graduate member of CILEx, studying towards a Fellowship (equivalent to solicitor) in Civil Litigation. However, any advice given on these forums by me is NOT formal legal advice, and I accept no liability for its accuracy.

    Just a pity they had to interrupt their game of Candy Crush on the iPhone so that someone could save them £100! But mercifully they were still able to do it lying on the sofa while eating their Pot Noodle.

    Life as it should be!

    With respect I was far from lying on the sofa eating a pot noodle I work long hours as a professional in my field I am a single mum with 2 children under 5 and i do own a laptop but itís broken and at the moment havent the means or time to get it repaired. This isnít a oh feel sorry for me, statement as This is far from my intention. I maybe light years away from ever being a Legal Eagal. I do however take umbrage from the assumption made that Iíve just laid in waiting for help when this is far from the reality.

    Again I thank this site and members massively to Bargepole, KeithP, RedX and Coupon Mad for all advice and help as I was very close to giving up and have taken it on the chin and gone with the roll of critism of what I duly deserve and also used the constructive criticism in the way it was intended. I beg to differ that I laid on my sofa eating a pot noodle as such a thing I wouldnít eat or play candy crush for that matter!!

    Oops - it was never directed at you, it was much more a general observation (in response to Bargepole's quite similar generalisation) about how so many new posters seem to have an expectation that the small handful of regulars on this forum are lining up, desperate to do everything for them to get them out of the mess that a large majority have caused for themselves.

    By example, since the beginning of December (just 6 weeks ago), we have dealt with almost 1,400 different threads (some very complicated/contentious) and provided copious amounts of advice to posters, many of whom fall into the category I have previously mentioned.

    On the forum (as in life) I speak my mind - but genuinely pull my weight and put in a full shift, often from the other side of the world where I'm not bound by endless winter nights to find distraction for myself.
