  1. Thanks again for your advice, Bazza. And others. You guys have always been great with help! I'm adding a bit to the CAG pot
  2. Sorry. Didn't notice the link in my anxious state of mind. Will check. Thank you
  3. Okay so what does that mean? There are no other laws or sections of the road traffic act mentioned in the letter. There is a PCSO name and address of Radford police station. Will I be arrested? Will I have to go to court for this? What are the penalties usually for such offences?
  4. It mentions ROAD TRAFFIC ACT 1988 SECTION 172
  5. Its a road to which the public can have access ... there' are bus stops within the campus
  6. It was ripped out by my car when I drove over it.. I didn't notice it as I was looking around trying to find my way. I'm guessing the uni has CCTV footage otherwise I wouldn't have received the letter with my car reg on it. This was within the uni campus not a public road. Sadly I didn't leave info, report to police or to insurers since I assumed uni of notts would have CCTV footage and get in touch with me regarding the damage and I could make payment for the damage.
  7. I drove over a bollard which was lying flat on the road at University of Nottingham and it was ripped out of the road from its bolts and dragged a few metres after which I backed up and removed it to the side of the road. Proceeded to security booth to report but no one was there so I went straight to a garage to check on damage to my car. The undertray had been cracked and a piece broken off and some screws were ripped out from the underside of my car. I have now received a letter from notts police asking me to confirm that I was the driver and keeper of the vehicle at that date and time. It mentions "alleged to have committed an offence under an enactment relating to vehicles on roads...". How serious is this offence? Can they arrest me for this?? I have of course replied to the letter confirming that I am the keeper and was the driver at the specified date and time.
  8. I'll get on this right away. Thank you for your quick reply.
  9. Moved in to this flat in January. Took out contract with EDF in ?FebMarch. Gave them meter readings from Feb (ECO 7) of approx R1 22000 and R4 20000. Bene paying DD £44 till Last month when they increased DD amount to £238 pm based on estimated readings and projected use for next 6 months. Called them today to enquire about this and they asked for current R1 and R2 (or R4) meter readings (sadly I have not been sending regular readings to them), I went to the meter and R1 showed as approx 24600 and R4 at 77000! I live on my own in this 2 bed flat which has no gas supply and everything is electric. I cannot understand how the meter reading could jump so high, so I requested EDF to send an engineer to check if meter faulty. I also sent photos of the meter readings today. Their response: Wait 1 week, then give meter readings again, and they will correct the INITIAL meter reading based on it! This, to me, sounds like theyre stalling and attempting to correct the initial reading to bring it in line with current readings so that they dont have to check the meter and can piossibly charge me more! They said that if the engineer comes out and the meter isnt fauty then I will be charged £80. Has anyone had similar problems?
  10. I have no correspondence regarding this PCN except the letter yesterday giving warning of removal. Lady came to the door at 7am this morning and knocked and went way because I didnt open. Cambridgeshire council wouldnt take my call to make payment saying I need to email parking queries. Have done this now. What can I do contact JACOBS and tell them I cannot afford £310 at one go but am ready to pay monthly towards repaying this debt? Man on the phone at JACOBS told me theres no way exept to pay in full. :(
  11. Got Jacobs letter stating I pay £423 within 24 hrs or they will remove my belongings from my address. Contravention was in November 2020. I have not been home since then due to being with my family owing to covid. My work has also been affected adversely due to covid. I called Jacobs and said I can't afford full payment and requested that they take payment arrangement. They refused. Planning to call the council tomorrow and ask if I can pay them the original amount and clear it off or make a payment arrangement with them. What do I do if the council refuse to take payment? And if they do take the payment do I still have to pay the £310 added by Jacobs to them??
  12. I recently separated from my wife and moved out on January 15th. She stayed behind at the old address and have the children with her 5 days a week. The tenancy agreement there has both our names on it. I want to give notice now and remove myself from the tenancy. My worry is that if I give notice, this would end the current tenancy and the landlord can ask her to move out (which he has been asking for since July 2020 because he wants to sell the house). Q: How much notice would he be required to give her if this was to happen? Q: Since I am giving notice now, can I ask the landlord to offset the month's rent from the deposit? (The deposit for the property was taken by landlord's representative back in Jan 2017 when I first moved in...£750 which was not put into any DPS scheme, but I think I have a receipt for the payment somewhere) Q: If I was to not pay rent for this month at the old address, what is the likelihood of the landlord taking me to court for this? (The rent due is £650.) Thank you for your replies.
  13. I'd sent the SAR, but not the holding letter. Nothing from SMART, yet. But then, I have ,moved in the meantime!
  14. Sorry for the silence, but I didn't have the time to update. I haven't looked into this for a few weeks now. I think I will have to ring them up and find out what is happening?
  15. They have sent a LETTER of CLAIM now. Much as I hatwe to do it, I think I will have to make a payment arrangement with them...
  16. I have read as much as I can on these links, but I am still unsure whether it's within the landlords rights to raise the rent at this time.... Just checking back here before I pay the rent today. Hope someone can advice. Many Thanks.
  17. I'm not sure I've understood the various terms correctly. Apologies. This was a CCTV capture it would seem. There are two pics. I will redact and post.
  18. It shows my reg plate so I figured I shouldnt have to upload it here....
  19. 1 Date of the infringement 15-02-2020 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] (I do not have this, only a letter of claim dated 17-12-20 3 Date received Unsure 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Nowhere on the Letter Before Claim (or enclosed forms) is this mentioned 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] No Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up N/A 7 Who is the parking company? SMART PARKING LTD 8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] MACDONALD ROAD, LEICESTER For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. No CONTRAVENTION: Insufficient paid time They have attached photos of the front and back of my car as evidence. Will sending an SAR to SMART Parking LTD stall the LETTER BEFORE CLAIM procedure that CST LAW or Debt Recovery Plus have initiated?
  20. What can I say, DX? I was a bit rushed with this and a few other things! I will fill that in. Thank you
  21. Smart site didn't accept the PCN number at all. It asked me to go to the debt recovery website. Well, the CST law letter did, in any case.
  22. Looked it up on the website and it is, indeed, my car parked on that site. I contacted DEBT RECOVERY PLUS via web live chat on their site, and explained my situation to them and proposed to pay £5 per month. They refused to accept and said that they will only take a minimum payment of £20 a month. I saved the transcript for the chat, and informed them I'll be in touch again. Total outstanding is £160 Would this qualify as a priority debt? Don't they have to check my incoming and expenses before making demands on payment?
