  1. hi,my sister purchased a car from a dealer on the 13th april,paid using her bank debit card,ive just found out from her that the dealer wouldnt offer her a warranty as it had been in an accident (front bumper cracked and they told her the front had been removed ) 6 weeks later the clutch has failed and after filling it with water its empty,not sure what else is wrong with it as ive been away and only returned today to find all this out,anyway whilst in the middle of typing this i decided to do a vechicle check,turns out it was a cat c insurance write off,she wasnt told this but also she never bothered to do a check first,im wondering where does she stand now as the car is no longer driveable,shes in a mess as she dont have a lot of cash and saved hard to make the purchase,im leaving the country again tomorrow for 3 weeks so im trying to get this sorted for her asap,any advice would be very much appreciated thanks for reading
  2. ive been away, its taken up to now for me to get back and report, better late than never i guess i was not working back at the same venue for ages couldnt get any pics etc, i submitted my appeal and asked to see a contract between pe and landowner, which gives pe the authority to charge to park on landowners land, got a reply from popla around 3 weeks later stating that pe did not wish to pursue the case, ticket quashed obviously im very happy with the outcome, thanks to all who contributed, without this site i would be fooked
  3. the reason i asked the above, was that's what i used a few years ago against pe/supermarket overstay in my popla appeal and won, with that in mind you would recommend that i base my appeal on the facts i mentioned in post 1 ? i need to get this sent off today so any advice would be much appreciated
  4. hi i received a letter back from PE on the 28th appeal failed and ive reached the end of there internal appeals procedure. our records confirm that no parking was purchased on the date of the parking event, despite there being payment methods available on the day in question then they go on to say about popla etc and goodwill gesture of 14 days extension etc etc after reading the previous post, i will be passing by the area tomorrow, and i will get pics etc and report back, i have read lots on the forum, i thought that my appeal a few years back, asking for contract between pe and said land leaser giving permission from landowner to pe to charge for parking on landowners land would be fine to use again this time in my popla appeal.
  5. behind the hotel car park, are two more hotels, and next to them is a car park, he told me that they only direct people to those car parks, but i know 100% that he said aloft hotel car park, the piece of paper he gave me was for a specific event that was taking place for a couple of days so they wont have any of them anymore as it was 2 weeks ago, theres been another 9 or 10 different events since then
  6. the last time i had a parking eye invoice,in my appeal to popla,i asked to see a contract between landowner and pe,allowing pe to charge for parking on said land,would that be sufficient this time round ?
  7. i went to the traffic office today, told the guy what happened, his reply was that nobody would of told me to park in that hotel car park, i tried to explain but he was having none of it, told me the car park was run by parking eye and its nothing to do with them and that they would never have directed me to the hotel car park, complete waste of my time even going there, now i need to write to parking eye to obtain a POPLA number but not sure what to write in the letter any ideas anybody ???
  8. Im working back at the same venue tomorrow (thursday) The guy that told me to park there works for traffic at that venue ,i kind of know him just to say hello, as i said previously he recognised me, i will go to the traffic office and see what i can get sorted ,i cant see that he would of directed me to park there if he had no instruction to do so, seems a bit careless if that is the case, i will report back tomorrow thanks for all the replies.

  12. hi all been a while since ive been hit with a speculative invoice, i went to park in a free overspill car park at work a few weeks back, the attendant stopped me entering as it was only for vans, the guy recognised me from work, told me to park in the adjacent hotel car park, gave me a sheet of paper to put on my dashboard and sent me on my way. i parked up for 40 minutes, came out went home, then receive a pcn from parking eye, contacted said hotel, explained what happened, they then inform me its nothing to do with them as parking eye control the car park, tbh ive never parked in there before so had no idea it was controlled by parking eye, the last time i had one of these i appealed to p/eye got my popla number then in my appeal i asked to see the contract between landowner and parking eye etc etc, parking eye never submitted an appeal and ticket was quashed,, ,,is this what i should do in this instance ? and if so what would my first appeal to parking eye contain ? not sure what i should be doing this time round any help much appreciated thanks for reading
  13. thanks for the links i was intending to write them a letter stating the fact they never issued me with an appeal (popla code) and as such the demand is meaningless as they have not followed the correct procedures,but after reading your links and the one after im not sure if i should write anything to them
  14. not that im aware of,the trigger is staying and being recorded via ANPR overstaying the hour. write a letter asking for proof of overstay then forget about it till you hear back then return to this thread and update us main thing is dont worry its a speculative invoice.
  15. if you were only there for 25 minutes they would have a record of your vechicle going in and then 25 minutes later going out,the customer bit is irrelavant. im assuming you were in there for longer than an hour and that has triggered them to issue the demand.
  16. you said you were on a call for 25 minutes so you havent breached the 1 hr
  17. just received a letter from gladstones solicitors today stating due to no payment or valid appeal our client has instructed us to seek payment not sure what to do, anyone else had dealings with gladstones ? would be nice to hear from anyone with regards to them thanks for reading
  18. hi just a quick update,i received another letter from DRP today,entitled "Reduced payment offer to avoid court action" i have till the 27th to settle at the reduced rate
  19. hi, one in the other thread i ignored and heard no more from them ,then received another letter for a different alleged ticket,2nd time the van lease company wrote a letter stating they had been contacted by said parking company to obtain owner details etc,not sure why that never happened the first time round,,
  20. ok,thanks for clarifying that,i will sit tight and report back if i hear anything
  21. ok so i sit tight and wait ? smart parking will not contact me as they have passed this on to DR+
  22. hi thanks for the speedy replies ok dates lease company to me 24th nov 2014 alleged offence 5 oct 2014 first letter from DRP 29TH Jan 2015 2nd letter 02 feb 2015 i havent been given any windscreen ticket from anyone that uses the van.
  23. hi i received a letter from our van lease company stating that a parking company had been in touch to identify the owner of the van as a parking ticket has been issued. the letter stated i would have the opportunity to appeal etc and would i let the lease company know what my plans were with regards to paying it or appealing it etc once id heard. then i receive a letter from debt recovery plus for an unpaid ticket £150 stating failure to comply with their previous demands in a previous letter (which i never received and asked for a copy which i got but was dated the day before i received it) i contacted smart parking and explained id heard nothing since the lease company contacted me and then a demand for £150,i told them i wanted to appeal this ticket and what should i do etc,they were very rude and abrupt and told me to deal with drp,not sure what to do here as ive now received a second letter from drp for £150 today any help would be much appreciated as always
  24. good news,i finally got my decision from POPLA and the ticket has been cancelled due to parking eye not submitting any evidence whatsoever in reply to the documents and contracts etc that i requested to see.The fact they never even bothered to reply to the appeal speaks volumes. thanks for all the replys and help,i couldnt of done it without that.
