I have received a CCJ following failure to pay a PCN dated

Customer Question

I have received a CCJ following failure to pay a PCN dated September 2014. Popular advice was to ignore all correspondence especially as I had indeed purchased a parking ticket on the day in question. I would like like to be able to disagree with the claim, but am unsure of what level of success to expect. Is it simply a question of my word against theirs??
Total amount being claimed against is £169.40 with court fee £25 and £50 costs.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Did you get the claim form please?
I assume this was from a private parking charge?

Hi Jamie, I did get a claim form, and the charge did originate from a private company- Parking eye.
Thanks, Adrian.

Its bad news, it used to be you could enforce these. However the Supreme Court in London ruled they can be enforced.

Its up to you whether or not you want to risk going to Court over this.

The London case was: ParkingEye Limited (Respondent) v Beavis (Appellant)

That decision is at:

But if you didnt appeal the original ticket, the chances are you would lose in Court.

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?
