Customer Question
Hi I recieved a 'PCN'...
Hi
I recieved a 'PCN' for parking at a retail park towards the end of 2012. I did not respond back . They are members of BPA and have obtained my details from DVLA. I have now received a Court claim form ( light orange colour)from Northampton. The car park was in London Hurlingham Retail park. I did write to the retailers and said that because of their delay I have received a parking fine. They wrote back and said they could not do anything but speak to the company.
Do I respond to the claim? If so seek a 28 days extension - if so which section and what do I say ? also need advice on the defence

Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 4 years ago
So what were the terms and conditions?

In what way do they say you were in breach?
Ask Your Own UK Traffic Law Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


The claim is damages arising from breach of contract and payment by the defendant to the claimant of the total amount


The breach of contract relates to 'signs displayed advising drives of the terms and conditions when parking in the car park '

Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 4 years ago

Hi

How are we getting on with this?
Ask Your Own UK Traffic Law Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Hi -


mitigation - I went to buy a dongle and to get it to work on my laptop they had to load alot of updates on my laptop - I don't recall seeing any signs nor did anyone say anything


I don't live near there so I don't have any phots of the signs at the time


but it is interesting that I have received this a year later - makes me think that they may have changed the signs recently as an aside

Customer reply replied 4 years ago


Hi - as frar as mitigation is concerned I went to buy a dongle - they needed to load updates which they said would take no more than half an hour - it took over 3 hrs . I then left and came back after 8pm

Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 4 years ago
