Hello friends i am back once again today i have received yet another letter from a different solicitor (Gladstones Solicitor) citing that i owe £160 to Uk car park management Ltd. I havent a clue where this happened or when i parked in there car park etc but the letter from gladstones is a letter before claim letter and i hope someone can help in what i should do next. I ignored such a letter previously and i am in a court case against CEL on where i am being helped out on another thread.In the Gladstones letter it says i need to reply within 30 days or legal proceedings will take effect thank you for reading.

Presumably, you are living in a leasehold property.

Do you own the lease? Or are you renting under a tenancy agreement?

It is a rented property and the leaseholder is my mother. The tenancy agreement which i just checked online states (ensure you have a parking permit or ticket and it is displayed correctly)

So get out your mother's lease and see what it says about parking. Is there a right to park, even a demised parking space.

Thing is I'm the sort of person who will end up paying them considering i don't want more court troubles at this stressful time in life.


QUOTE
I realize but it's quite a lengthy process which in already going through with another parking company which went to far and has becomea real headache which is why I was considering paying.


QUOTE
I understand all that but all the defence statements witness statements etc I just can't word it or anything and there's all sorts of court deadlines n things which all becomes too much for me. Iff there was a quick way out of be happy to take it but I find it very complicated while carrying for my pensioner mother. That's the reason I'm thinking of paying for it to go away.


Right - the facts are:

You have a ticket.
You have the right advice.
You can beat this.

All that's needed from you is to stay the course, and follow advice as prescribed.

I will be the one to say it though, if you don't want the stress / aggravation etc. , by all means pay it.

Personally, I put a £ value on my time and weigh up hours vs. expected benefit, a £30 ticket for me may be cheaper than spending 20 hours (with stress etc.) fighting, but for £100, I'd do it

However, if you don't want to

Carry on.

I appreciate that these things can feel like they're getting on top of you, but honestly, if you read around the completed case summaries, you will find a whole host of examples where people with other pressures and worries follow through and beat these companies; particularly on leasehold properties where a managing agent has bought in these people without thinking of he consequences.

I hope your mood will pick up once you beat CEL!

In residential parking cases, the lease is usually the resident's greatest friend.

So, the first thing to do now is to get hold of a copy of your mother's lease (just as ostell said).

Stating in the TA that you should have a permit and display it, doesnt mean failure to do so means you pay someone, and doesnt mean tat in order to park you have to enter a contract. It is merely something for the convenience of others - not indication youve entered into a contract

Plus, failing to display a permit is at best at breach of TA, something the PPC is a compelte stranger to. They can FRO.

Hi again i may be mistaken but i think i have discovered a fake gladstones solicitor website. The letter i got and the web address on it takes me to gladstones debt recovery site but there is also another one spelt slightly differently which seems to be the real Gladstones solicitors. Could someone please compare the 2 because i think Uk car park management may have made this site up to look like the official Gladstones website.

From web site #1 - "Gladstones Solicitors Is Authorised & Regulated By The Solicitors Regulation Authority: 559050. Company Number: 7535449"
From web site #2 - "regulated by The Solicitors Regulation Authority SRA no: 630857." "Gladstone Solicitors Ltd, a company registered at Companies House No:09079884"
Definitely something very smelly going on!
Edit - just noticed the first is "Gladstones Solicitors" and the second "Gladstone Solicitors" (singular Gladstone). I wonder if there are two such solicitors?

On the letter i have there is no address for them just a number to ring them for online payment and the web address also for payment. Is it possible they are not a solicitor at all and it is the parking company who just made the site to loo like an official solicitors and the headed letter i got is just fake too.

First link is real. Second link is just a different solicitors with a similar name. Nothing dodgy there.

Strange their LBC is not the usual one though. Missing the phone number to the top right. Strange there is no address on the bottom.

How is one who is not computer literate supposed to respond.

I would think that without an address to respond to the lbc may not be properly served

Have you done anything about getting a copy of the lease yet?

If you have not, you need to move this forward.

If the lease cannot be found, you might be able to get a copy from the solicitors who acted when the lease was purchased.

Alternatively, you can get a copy from the Land Registry using form OC2.

As mentioned previously, in residential cases, the lease is very often the resident's greatest friend.

I found this on the site to which you link above.

https://www.bpha.org.uk/your-home/tenancy-guide/

Under the sub heading 'Maintaining Your Tenancy'- scroll down and read the page -

'Parking' -

Parking is a very sensitive issue that can upset both residents and non residents. bpha tend not to get involved in any parking disputes and you will need to resolve these types of dispute yourself. We ask that you abide by the terms of your tenancy agreement, requirements of the local authority that you live in and the Highway Code.

Remember you are responsible for all members of your household and all visitors to your property.

Please;

only park on the street or in marked parking spaces,
ensure you have a parking permit or ticket and it is displayed correctly,
do not park on grass areas, paths or verges,
you must not park cars, trailers commercial vehicles, caravans or boats or similar in your garden or land.

If you, a member of or visitor to your household has abandoned a vehicle on bpha land we will give you notice to remove the vehicle. If the vehicle is not removed bpha will remove it and you will be responsible for all costs incurred. We will treat any vehicle as abandoned if it is on our land and is untaxed or unroadworthy.

Covenants
You will comply with any covenants that apply to your Property of which you are made aware of at the start of your tenancy or at a later date by a representative of bpha.

Garages

We own a number of garages to rent in Bedford and surrounding villages. Please contact us if you are interested in renting one.

Abandoned or untaxed cars

If we are aware that vehicles are not taxed or appear to be abandoned we will notify the DVLA. You can also report an abandoned vehicle via your local council website. Find out who that is via this link using your postcode.

If you need to dispose of a vehicle please look online for companies who may be able to assist or contact your local council.
