    Info needed re keeper \ registered keeper on ECP appeal page 29th Aug 18 at 3:04 PM
    Hi, new to the forum, have read the newbie post etc, not sure if I have missed this, I read when you are appealing on the ECP website not to say you are the registered keeper but to say you are the keeper

    when appealing it only gives you 4 options - registered keeper , driver & registered keeper, hirer/lease, and none of the above.

    which one should I choose ?

    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 House of Commons recently recently.

    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.

    Just tick the 'Other' box - standard forum advice, no one has suffered as a result.

    What does it mean? Who knows, it's just a 'catch-all' I guess. Only POPLA (or more likely the BPA who gave them the categories) will know exactly what they were thinking about.

    No need to scratch your head any further.
    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.

    No they are not!

    It is shocking that POPLA retain that lie, fed to them by the BPA, we believe. Guess what?

    That misleading statement was there BEFORE this POPLA service even received a single appeal...

    Good Morning, i had to make some changes to the popla, add some more pics etc so didn't submit yesterday, but am ready now ha, anyhow just a bit of advice before i do, as i don't want to do anything wrong as i cant find any info when searching, but on the submit the popla it says

    Please Explain your reasons for appealing the parking ticket, (2000 letters), can i put - something like Driver pulled into car park to pick family member up, as the main road is a fast 30 mph one way street, did not get out of car, didn’t see any signs (there isn’t any where the driver was positioned when entered).

    Type of document: Other
    what is the Appeal: Appeal

    How does it support your appeal: The pdf document list and shows evidence to suport my appeal against the pcn which was issued to vehicle ****** on the date

    sorry if it is already posted, this will help people like me in the future who are searching for some simple answers.

    You do not put ANYTHING in that box OTHER THAN "Please see my appeal uploaded as file..."
    Otherwise they will ignore your appeal file, and just reject your summary appeal.

    Hi, received ECP evidence, ok have 7 days to respond . looking at their evidence they sent a lot of photos, they sent a copy of the car park which has been taken from google maps, just compared it, they have just added a few points like The PCN (NTK/NTO) has been checked by Solicitors who specialise in assisting private car park operators – legal advice and pre legal advice with regards signage and adhering to POFA and both code of practice blah blah, i am going to scour the site now, dont want anyone to tell me what to do but can anyone point me in the right direction to start to reply, Thanks

    yes, read through their evidence pack and make a note of anything they have failed on , or they have not contested

    landowner contracts, signage, POFA2012 , NTK , anything at all

    also read a few recent 2018 popla rebuttals so you know what has worked for others

    bear in mind you only have 2000 characters for the rebuttal portal, so not many words

    I will start you off with post #51 in this thread
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se
