So the letter below came across my desk. The original charge notice was ignored by the driver at the time (company car, leased), as were the original letters.

Given I have plenty of other things to do, entering a defence on court action doesn't particularly thrill me. I understand that the contract is with the driver, but clearly have no wish for the company to be involved, but neither do I want to involve the driver.

Any valued advice greatly appreciated!

The answer is no, but in the original communication, the leasing company just replied to the original letter to them with our company details.


Does not matter who the failure came from, the PPC was told you were the hirer and did not send you a copy of the lease with the NTK, so no keeper liability.

QUOTE
There is no distinction between a car on a lease agreement to a company, and a car hired out to an individual?


Correct.

an update!

We received an email, through our general email address so got missed, from Gladstones with 'relevant documents upon which our client intends to rely upon should the matter proceed to court.'

It includes the signage, copies of correspondence, relevant photos etc.

Although we didn't stipulate that we wouldn't accept service by email, it wasn't requested and all previous correspondence had been via letter.

Any advice? Ignore or another letter across their bows?

I suspect that the letter which you received in July was a letter of/before claim and that the email that you have come across was sent in response to your reply to the letter of/before claim.

What was the date of the email?

I suspect that you may be about to receive a formal claim from MCOL.

EDIT: I now see that the letter received by you in May was, in fact, a letter of/before claim.

The email was around the end of July.
