Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The company owns a road which they had managed by a Parking Control Co who was instructed by them. I was parking outside a building where I had an office and a parking ticket which allowed me to park there. from 8,30am to 9pm. The parking control Co enforcer had put a clamp on my car around 3pm and would not release the car unless I paid him £450 despite the fact that the parking ticket was displayed in the window. He said I could pay the fine and then claim it back from his co. This company were criminals and a registery search I did after paying the £450 showed there were £35,000 of CCJs against them unpaid. They were also sued by Wandsworth Council for £5,900 for illegal activities to do with parking and were the subject of a Daily Mail expose..

The company I am suing because it is a waste of tme going after the Parking Control Co had to pay out for a similar case which I have details of 2 years previous. However despite my getting a court order I have

not been paid and they didn't bother attending court.

I want my money back obviously but it woul d be useless to send a bailiff

if there was nothing to take for sale. I therefore was thinking of the High Court to get the money directly from their bank account.

Was it a small claim please?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i am at a loss to understand how the time of my message and your reply

are both prior to 9 pm when I first contacted Just Answer.

In reply to your question yes it was a small claim

Expert:  Ash replied 3 years ago.
It may be that it's different time stamp as I am on holiday in the USA.

If its a small claim then no you can not claim the cost of just answer.

This is because as a small claim only costs where an injunction is made can be recovered and even that is limited to under £260

So as a small claim you can't add this cost.

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you but I have a duty to be honest.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
